Flaxseed, also known as linseed, has a mild, sweet and nutty flavour and is considered to be one of the world’s healthiest foods. Cultivated in India since thousands of years, flaxseed is loaded with nutrients and is one of the first superfoods known to man.
Benefits: Known to reduce LDL cholesterol levels and strengthen the immune system, flaxseed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and helps fight inflammation. The presence of high fiber and antioxidants, makes flaxseed an ideal healthy addition to your daily diet.
How to Use: Roast to enhance flavour and eat as a snack or add to dishes like porridge, muesli, soup, salad, cookies and bread. Flaxseed is best digested when ground into a powder. Make a masala with the powder to use with Indian dishes or add to smoothies and soups.
