Brown Flaxseed, also known as linseed, comes from the flax plant. The seeds, which are a little larger than sesame seeds, contain omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, and protein. Used since ancient times, flax is renowned for myriad health benefits. Add flaxseeds to breads, cookies, cereals, and pilafs, or grind them into flaxseed meal at home using a small electric grinder.

Details

Brown flaxseed, also known as linseed, comes from the flax plant, which is cultivated for its seeds as well as its fiber. The seeds, which are a little larger than sesame seeds, contain omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fiber, and lignans. Used since ancient times, flax is renowned for myriad health benefits.

Don't let the tiny, unimposing size of the flaxseed fool you. Packed inside every teeny seed is a mountain of nutritional benefit. For instance, flaxseeds are an excellent source of fiber. They are also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. Most Americans don't consume nearly enough omega-3's, and eating flaxseeds is an easy and tasty way to get these essential fats in your diet! Other health benefits provided by regular consumption of flaxseed are prevention and control of high blood pressure and reduction of cholesterol levels.

These seeds can be eaten whole, or sprouted or ground to make their vital nutrients available to the body. Add flaxseed to bread, muffins, bars, biscuits, crackers, granola, cookies and other recipes for extra nutrition and a nutty flavor. See the back of our package for two terrific recipes using our Flaxseed—Bulgur & Flax Pilaf and Three Seed Bread!

Flaxseed
Tried this product for the first time and was extremely pleased. The quality of the flaxseed is excellent and I find by grinding the seed myself allows control over the degree of fineness I can achieve.

These are fresh and perfect in every way- one should take care to protect them in an airtight container (heat, moisture and light degrade their nutritional components) when storing and grind whole seeds to add to dish at the last minute. They provide oodles of goodness and lend a mellow nuttiness to a dish.

I grind my own brown flaxseeds to mix with banana and yogurt and these are so good to use. I even sprinkle them whole on other dishes.

Full of chaff
The last 25 lb bag i got of brown flaxseed was heavy with chaff throughout.. i grind it so it wasn't too important but that chaff always made a big mess.. I will think twice about ordering it again
