Description

Flaxseeds, also known as linseeds, are small, brown or golden seeds that come from the flax plant. It is a highly nutritious and versatile food that has been cultivated for thousands of years and has become popular for its health benefits.

Flax seeds are rich in several nutrients that are very useful for people:

Omega-3 fatty acids: especially alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a type of polyunsaturated fat that benefits heart health. The omega-3 fatty acids in flaxseeds can help reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.
Fiber: Flaxseeds are an excellent source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which can aid digestion and promote satiety. The high fiber content in flax seeds can promote regular bowel movements and relieve constipation. Also, the combination of fiber and healthy fats in flax seeds can help control appetite and help regulate weight.
- Protein: Flaxseed contains plant-based protein, making it a suitable addition to vegetarian and vegan diets.
Vitamins and minerals: Flaxseeds contain small amounts of various vitamins and minerals, such as B vitamins, magnesium and manganese.
-Potential Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Some studies suggest that flax seeds may have anti-inflammatory properties that may be useful in treating conditions such as arthritis.

Organic flaxseed can be incorporated into your diet in a number of ways:

Ground flax seeds: ground flax seeds are easier for the body to digest and absorb nutrients from. They can be added to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, or used as an egg substitute in baking recipes.
Whole Flaxseeds: Whole flaxseeds can be sprinkled on salads, mixed into cereal or used as a crunchy topping in baked goods.
Flaxseed Oil: Flaxseed oil is another way to incorporate the nutritional properties of flaxseed into your diet. It can be used as a salad dressing or poured over cooked vegetables.

Organic flaxseed is grown and produced using organic farming methods. Organic farming is an approach to agriculture that emphasizes sustainability, environmental responsibility, and the avoidance of synthetic chemicals, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and artificial additives. Usually, in order to protect nuts from pests and keep them as long as possible, they are exposed to artificial chemicals - pesticides, and as you know, many pesticides are toxic and dangerous to human health. For this reason, it is important to choose certified, organic products.

It is important to note that although flax seeds are a nutritious addition to a balanced diet, they should be consumed in moderation as they are high in calories. Also, if you have certain medical conditions or are on medication, it's a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before making any significant dietary changes involving flaxseed or any other new food.

Usage

Flaxseed can be included in your daily diet in many ways, enriching dishes with nutrients and a mild nutty taste. Here are some popular ways to incorporate flaxseed into your diet:

Ground Flaxseeds: Ground flaxseeds are easier for the body to digest and absorb nutrients compared to whole flaxseeds. You can buy ground flax seeds or grind them yourself with a coffee grinder or food processor. 

Ground flax seeds can be used in the following ways:

- Add to smoothies: Add 1-2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed to your morning smoothie. This will enrich the cocktail with fiber and healthy fats.
- Mix with yogurt or oatmeal: mix a spoonful of ground flaxseed into yogurt, oatmeal, or porridge.
- Use as a substitute for some ingredients: In some baking recipes, you can replace eggs by mixing 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water. Leave the mixture for a few minutes until it thickens, then use the mixture instead of eggs in muffins or pancakes.

Whole Flaxseeds: Whole flaxseeds can be used in a variety of ways, but are more difficult to digest than ground flaxseeds, so it's best to crush or chew them before consuming them for better nutrient absorption.

Here's how to use whole flaxseeds:

- Sprinkle on salads: add a spoonful of whole flax seeds as a crunchy salad sprinkle.
- Mix in cereal: Mix whole flaxseeds into your breakfast cereal or granola for added texture and nutrition.
- Uses in baking: whole flaxseeds can be added to bread, muffin or cookie recipes to give them a light nutty flavor and a little crunch.

Do not forget that flax seeds have a slightly nutty taste that can complement various dishes. Start with small amounts and gradually increase until you get used to the taste and texture. It is also very important to store flax seeds in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer to keep them fresh as they can turn rancid over time.
