Flax seed is one of the original ancient grains—evidence of its use as a textile dates back more than 30,000 years, to Paleolithic times. It was first cultivated in the Fertile Crescent before spreading through Switzerland, Germany, China, India, Egypt and Europe.
The benefits of flaxseed are clear: according to the Journal of Food Science and Technology, flax is an incredibly rich source of lignans, a type of phytonutrient that offers possible health benefits. In addition to lignans, our organic golden flax seed is an excellent source of fiber and a good source of iron, although ground flax seed is more easily digested by the body—toss our golden flax into a spice grinder or blender to release its vital nutrients, or browse our golden flaxseed meal.
Organic golden flax is identical to brown flax in nutrition and flavor: both are tasty sprinkled on cereal and stirred into crackers, bread, smoothies, muffins and much more.
