Flax seeds are a by-product derived from the flax plant whose origin is Caucasian. Currently, they are grown in Europe, America and North Africa. They have a flattened oval shape with pointed tips and measure between 4 and 6 mm.
They are known for their nutritional value, high in fiber, antioxidants, fatty acids and omega 3.
There are two basic varieties of flax seeds that are distinguished by their color, brown that is the most common to find and gold, which flavor is stronger and more intense.
As far as human consumption is concerned, flax seeds can be consumed whole, ground or as oil. They stand out for their health benefits by reducing cholesterol, diabetes, improving cardiovascular health and helping to control weight.
They are commonly used for bird feed mixed with other seeds but can also be used individually.
