What Is Organic Ground Linseed/Flaxseed?
Linseeds (also known as Flaxseeds) generally come in two Varieties, Brown Linseed and Golden Linseed, which are both as colourful as the name suggests. They differ very little, if at all, in composition however the Golden variety are certainly more flavourful. Both types are a great source of wheat free fibre and ( particularly in their ground form), are a great vegetarian source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acid, Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA).
Ground linseed are made for convenience, easily sprinkled over pretty much anything without influencing the outcome too much, effectively supercharging your food and drinks with goodness! Ground linseed works especially well with a dash over breakfast cereal, or salad and even more so in smoothies.
Why Should I Get Organic Ground Linseed/Flaxseed?
Linseed are very very good for you and eating them is a sure-fire way to add some healthiness to your diet, the problem however with linseed is that all this goodness is locked away in their tough, digestion resistant, outer shell.
Eating them is bound to break some seeds open releasing all the nutrient rich constituents inside however a worryingly large portion will be swallowed whole, going straight through your body totally undigested and you guessed it, back out once again, adding nothing in the way of nutrition. A beautifully simple and easy way of making sure this wonderful seed is not spoiled by its own stubbornness is milling them into a coarse powder whereby your body finally gets unhindered access their staggering, heart friendly fat content!
linseed are 42% fat, That means In each 10 gram tablespoon there are approximately 4.3 grams of fats, the composition of which is 73% polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as omega-6 fatty acids and the omega-3 fatty acids, and 27% monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids.
Linseed also promote bowel movement by increasing the water content and bulk volume of our stools (number 2's!), keeping us nice and regular. This is especially important as most of us don't eat the recommended amount of fibre, but adding linseed to your diet is an easy, convenient way of increasing your intake. Start with a teaspoon, and increase in size slowly until you're having 1-2 tablespoons, spread throughout the day.
It's really important to increase your fluid intake along with your fibre, aim for 8-10 cups of fluid each day to compliment this regime. Why not try mixing linseeds with a glass of water? Killing two birds with one stone!
