Flax seeds (Linum usitatissimum) — also known as common flax or linseeds — are small oil seeds that originated in the Middle East thousands of years ago.
With its mild, nutty flavor and crisp, crunchy consistency, flaxseed is a versatile ingredient that can enhance the taste and texture of almost any recipe.
Lately, they have gained popularity as a health food.

Just one serving provides a good amount of protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, along with several important vitamins and minerals.
Some call it one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet.
There’s some evidence it may help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.
