Organic Whole Brown Flax Seeds – 2, 5 or 10 lb bags
The health benefits of flax seed are well documented. A single tablespoon of flax seed contains about 8 grams of fiber. Flax seeds are also a good plant source for omega-3 fatty acids which play an important role in the anti inflammatory system of our body. Both of which most people don’t get enough of.
Perhaps the most important thing to be aware of is that the seeds must be ground in order for the body to take advantage of the nutritional benefits. Otherwise, the hard outer shell of the seeds will not break down during digestion and seeds will pass right through. An inexpensive coffee grinder will easily accomplish the grinding in seconds, as will many hand grain mills.
Ground flax seeds are easily incorporated into bread and most baked goods, cerial, yogurt, smoothies.
