1、What is flax?
Flax is a blue-flowered plant grown in the cool, northern climate of the Western Canadian prairies and the Northern United States. The seed from flax is full of disease-fighting compounds, including omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), fibre, lignans (which are powerful antioxidants) and high-quality protein. Flaxseed has been found to help protect against heart disease, inflammatory disorders and certain cancers.
2、Golden and brown flaxseed
Golden and brown flaxseed are nutritional the same and can be used interchangeably. It's really a matter of choice, but be assured that you can substitute golden for brown and vice versa without sacrificing any of the natural goodness in flaxseed. Flaxseed can also be found in numerous ready-to-eat products including snack bars, trail mixes, muffins, pancakes, cereals, waffles, breads, pastas, pizza crusts and more.
