Flax seeds or Linseeds are small, brown, shiny seeds packed full of nutrition. They have a tough edible coating that prevents the precious oil inside from going rancid. Because of this coating, it is commonly misinterpreted that the coating is indigestible by the human body and as a result passes through whole taking all its nutrients with it. Luckily this is not the case and once in the intestine, the linseeds cling to the walls of the intestine where they are broken down by good bacteria and the nutrients absorbed into the blood stream.
HOW TO USE
Due to their small size and light taste, linseeds can be added to many recipes without affecting flavour but adding a nice crunchy texture. Perfect on cereal, yoghurt and baked into bread, linseeds can also be ground in small amounts directly before adding to food.Another great way to include linseeds in your diet is in the form of LSA (linseeds, ground sunflower seeds and ground almonds), which can be sprinkled over cereals and used as a super healthy coating for meat and poultry.
