Linseeds produce this flaxseed flour that is a great addition to gluten free recipes, adding the elusive elasticity to breads and cakes. Flaxseed provides an abundance of nutritional benefits. It is high in fiber, which helps improve your digestive system. Flax seed is also full of alpha-linolenic acid, which is an omega-3 fatty acid that can help combat arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and heart disease. The outside of a flax seed is very hard to crack — it will likely pass undigested through your body if you eat it whole. Grinding flaxseed first makes it easier to digest and ensures that you absorb all of the nutrients.
This organic golden flaxseed meal from Waltanna Farms in Victoria is also an excellent source of protein and is rich in lignans. Waltanna's unique cold-press method ensures:
· Maximum freshness (due to small batch processing)
· Superior taste (cold-pressing retains the inherent nutty flavour of flaxseed)
· Absolute purity (oil is filtered only - nothing added, no further refining)
Flaxseed meal and flour are extremely rich in protein, soluble & insoluble dietary fibre, and lignans (which the body may convert into beneficial phyto-oestrogens). Both products retain an oil content of up to 10%. Flaxseed meal can be added to almost any food – eg sprinkled over breakfast cereal, natural yoghurt and fruit, mixed in fruit smoothies. It provides a nutty-tasting, nutritious alternative to bran or psyllium products. Flaxseed meal and flour are ideal additions to your home-baked fruit loaves, health bars, cakes and bread.
