Flax seeds are shiny, oval-shaped seeds that are golden yellow in colour. Golden flax seeds have a palatable nutty flavour that makes them a suitable addition to many baked products. Flax seeds are an excellent source of soluble dietary fibre, complete protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Golden flax seeds can be eaten in a number of ways. They add a nutty flavour to breads, bagels, muffins, or granola products. Flax seeds can also be added to smoothies or hot cereal (1-2 tablespoons per serving) during or after cooking. For proper digestion, it is best to grind the seeds into a paste or meal before mixing with other ingredients.
