Golden Flax seeds, also commonly known as Linseeds, have been used as a staple food for thousands of years. They are a source of Calcium and Iron, a high source of Fiber and provide 3 grams of Omega-3 per 1 heaping tablespoon 15-gram serving. Flax seeds are also known for their unique beneficial compounds known as lignans, which have been shown to positively impact health in numerous ways. Much like Slippery Elm, Flax seeds are highly mucilaginous in nature and as such provide a soothing film for irritated mucous membranes. The delicate, nutty flavour of flax seeds nutritionally enhances all recipes without altering the taste.
