Milder flavor, pleasant tone
High Omega-3 fatty acid content
Supports blood vessel and digestive health
Flaxseeds have been grown and used for thousands of years, for dietary as well as medicinal purposes. Flaxseeds were found next to bodies in Egyptian pyramids, most probably left as preserves for the dead so they would have energy to make the journey to the after-life.
Golden flaxseeds most differ from their brown variant in their appearance, as they have the same internal values.
Golden flaxseeds have high fat content, particularly essential Omega-3 fatty acids. These particularly include alpha-linolenic acid, which helps prevent arteriosclerosis and support brain functions apart from its general anti-inflammatory effect. Its regular use is recommended for those who don’t eat fish and are looking for a natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Flaxseeds also have rather high fiber content. They contain water soluble and water-insoluble dietary fiber, which support natural digestion in different ways. However, it’s important to provide for an ample supply of liquids when using flaxseeds
Keep in mind that the nutrients in flaxseeds can only be utilized by the body by chewing or grinding the flaxseeds, otherwise it will only pass through the digestive tract as “ballast materials” – although it can also be effective in treating constipation.
Thanks to its pleasant tone, golden flaxseeds are perfect for homemade breads, pastries or used in breading.
The seeds can be used on their own, whole or ground. The recommended daily allowance is 1-2 teaspoons, mixed in at least 1 glass of water. They can also be used in oatmeal, plant-based yogurts or salad dressings.
