Flax seeds, also known as linseeds, are tiny, brown or golden-colored seeds that come from the flax plant (Linum usitatissimum). They are rich in fiber, protein, and a variety of other beneficial nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which are antioxidant compounds.
Flax seeds can be consumed in a variety of ways. Here are some common ways to use flax seeds:
- Ground Flax Seeds: Ground flax seeds are easy to digest and can be easily incorporated into your diet. You can sprinkle them on top of yogurt, oatmeal, or salads, or mix them into smoothies, muffins, and other baked goods.
- Whole Flax Seeds: You can also eat flax seeds whole, but they are harder to digest than ground flax seeds. If you choose to eat them whole, you can soak them in water overnight to make them easier to digest.
- Flaxseed Oil: Flaxseed oil is extracted from flax seeds and is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. It can be used as a salad dressing or added to smoothies or other foods.
- Flaxseed Flour: Flaxseed flour is made by grinding flax seeds into a fine powder. It can be used as a substitute for regular flour in baking recipes.
