Brown Flax Seeds
Flax has benefited mankind since the Paleolithic Age. Scientists found wild flax fibers, preserved in a cave in the Republic of Georgia, and dated them back a staggering 30,000 years. Flax was the source of the linen worn by priests in ancient Egypt and the sails that carried Roman ships throughout the Old World. Flax seed has also played a major nutritional role for millennia. In 8th-century Europe, Charlemagne was a proponent of the health benefits of flax seed oil.
Charlemagne knew what he was talking about. Brown flax seeds are a superfood, packed with essential Omega-3 fatty acids and featuring a deeply nutty, earthy flavor. Because of the superfood’s tastiness and health benefits, it figures in a wide array of commercially prepared food, from frozen waffles to crackers. Foodies often use flax seed, with a dollop of honey, to make their morning yogurt more interesting. It’s a great topping for oatmeal, a texturally appealing coating for chicken, and a happy addition to muffins and breads. Beat flax seed into eggs to create an innovative version of French toast. Use flax seed to jack up the nutrition of meatloaf, while improving the consistency. Cold-press flax seed to create your own unique, healthy salad oil.
The fatty acids in brown flax seeds are important weapons in the fight against heart disease. Numerous studies demonstrate their ability to discourage cholesterol buildup in arteries and reduce arterial inflammation. Flax seed is also packed with lignans, plant nutrients with antioxidant and estrogenic properties linked to lower risks of breast and prostate cancer. In addition, the soluble and insoluble fiber in flax seed can improve digestive health.
