Flaxseeds are a rich source of protein. They also contain high levels of fibre, B vitamins and various essential minerals. Flaxseeds are a particularly good source of magnesium, potassium, thiamine and phosphorus, as well as an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, especially for people who don’t eat enough meat or fish.
As a percentage of total fat content, flaxseed contains 53% omega 3 fatty acids, 18% omega 9 fatty acids and 6% omega 6 fatty acids; this is the perfect ratio of omega oils needed by the body. They are also a rich source of other antioxidant plant compounds, such as lignans.
Flax – also known as linseed – is cultivated in cool regions such as the Canadian prairies and the UK. The green, slender crop has pure-blue flowers and round fruit, each containing several brown, glossy seeds.
The Latin name for flax is Linum usitatissimum, meaning “most useful”. Flax is widely cultivated for its oil, which is used in various wood-finishing products. Its oil is also used in India as an ingredient in various curries and is also grown as an ornamental garden plant.
When used in textiles, the crop is commonly referred to as linen. The earliest evidence of people using flax as a textile was discovered in Georgia, where spun, dried and knotted wild flax fibres were uncovered in a cave dating back to the Upper Paleolithic, 30,000 years ago.
