    Linseeds are great natural sources of essential fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6.

    Organic golden linseeds are golden in colour as you may expect from their name! Also known as flaxseeds, they have a mild nutty, earthy flavour.

    Linseeds are the richest plant source of omega 3 fats, which are essential for a healthy brain, heart, joints and immune system.  Due to the high content of plant chemicals known as phytoestrogens, linseeds have been called nature's answer to hormone replacement therapy.

    Linseeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, especially rich in gamma-tocopherol; containing about 20 g (133% of daily-recommended values) per 100 g. vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucusa and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals.

    These seeds are packed with many important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. Thiamin is an essential co-factor for carbohydrate metabolism and helps prevent beri-beri disease. Folates help prevent neural tube defects in the fetus when consumed during pre-conception period and pregnancy.

    And lastly, linseeds are a rich source of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

    Suggested Serving

    One way to use these is to soak the golden linseed first, then put one heaped dessert spoonful of seeds into a glass, cover with water and leave overnight. Add the swollen seeds and water to a drink such as fruit juice or a smoothie, or to your cereal or yogurt, or drink it on its own. You can also just sprinkle on your cereal or pop in a salad.
