Thank you for introducing me to your flax seed. Not only can I not imagine my morning oatmeal without it, but it has helped me in several health related areas.
What is flax seed?
Flax seed has been used in the diets of humans for
thousands of years. The Babylonians cultivated flax seed as early as 3,000 B.C., and millennia later, in 650 B.C., Hippocrates used flax seed for the relief of intestinal discomfort. Flax seed was so important for the health of his subjects that the 8th century king, Charlemagne, passed laws and regulations governing its consumption. Today, consumers are turning to flax seed for its many health benefits and pleasant, nutty flavour — a distinctive addition to baked products. flax seed provides essential nutrients, including protein, essential fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals; and it contains both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre. Moreover, flax seed is a rich source of lignans, a type of phytoestrogen. Phytoestrogens are compounds that may protect against certain types of cancer by interfering with the effects of estrogen.
OMEGA FLAX SEED
A North Dakota State University research project led to the development of a new golden variety of flax seed named Omega. This new variety was created primarily as a human food source and Omega flax seed has a more pleasant nutty-buttery flavor than the brown flax. Omega flax seed was named for its higher level of omega-3 essential fatty acid found in the beneficial flax seed oil which is a higher percentage than the brown flax. This golden flax seed also has a hull that is easier to grind and it looks much better than the brown flax seed when mixed into your favorite flax seed recipes.
Dear Mr. Hylden;
First off, let me say that you grow a wonderful flaxseed. I was first introduced to flax seed last July. My interest at the time was the fiber value, because I had a bout with colon cancer over a year ago and was advised to keep my intake of fiber high. I have since come to learn about all of the other healthful attributes if flax seed. My wife and I both now eat your flaxseed daily.
