   Introduction

Flaxseed is also known as common flax or linseed. Flaxseeds produce a vegetable oil known as flaxseed or linseed oil.Flax is a plant and has been a stable part of farming for hundreds of years and every part of it was useable. The seeds for food and the production of linseed oil (another name for flax and is a good preserver of wood as well as good for our bodies) and the stems for example can be used to produce linen fiber for clothes and other products.


   Description

 

Commonly cultivated flax plants are named Linum Usitatissimum L. The color of its leaves can be anything from pale or dark blue to a whitish pink. The leaves are small and narrow and the plant doesn’t get much above 35 inches in height. The flowers produce round seed capsules and it is these that develope the flax seeds. Flax seeds are oval and flat and range from light golden in colour to reddish brown. There seems to be a common belief that their nutritional values are about the same even though the golden colour seems more appealing to the shopper. Flax seed is approximately 40% oil by weight, and of that 55% alpha linolenic acid (a.k.a. omega-3 fatty acid).


   Uses of Flax/ Linseed

»  Flaxseeds have a healthy combination of mono and polyunsaturated fats. They are excellent    sources of alpha linolenic acid. Alpha linolenic acid is a type of plant-derived omega-3 fatty     acid, similar to those found in fish such as salmon.
»  They are good source of protein, which is easily digested and contains all the essential amino     acids needed for building a strong body.
»  Flaxseed also contains lecithin, which emulsifies fat and cholesterol.
