Flaxseeds Ground (Flaxmeal) Organic 200g
Organic ground flaxseed is super nutritious with protein, fibre, and omega-3s fatty acids. It helps maintain healthy digestion, support optimal level of cholesterol and blood pressure. Each tablespoon (7 grams) of ground flaxseed provides almost 2 grams of fibre, which is around 5% of the daily recommended intake for men (8% for women)
Did you know flaxseed is one of the oldest crops in the world? It has been cultivated since the beginning of the civilisation! (1).
Linum usitatissimum, the Latin name of the flaxseed, means “very useful”. Flaxseeds come in two basic varieties, brown and yellow (or golden). Both have similar nutritional properties, except yellow flaxseed contains less omega-3 fatty acids.
One serving (2 tblsp) of flaxseed provides a good amount of fibre, protein, and omega 3 fatty acids. It may help lower the risk of some cancers, help maintain a healthy body weight, and reduce cholesterol and help to lower blood pressure.
With its mild, nutty flavour, ground flaxseed is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the taste and texture of almost any recipe. It be can also used as a binder in place of eggs in many recipes.
One way to use this seed is by mixing it into your morning smoothie. It also makes an excellent addition to bread, muffins, pancake mix, homemade veggie burgers, and even overnight oats.
Ground flaxseed (flaxmeal) is completely free from dairy and lactose, it's vegan-friendly and a great addition to any healthy diet.
