Flax Seeds (Also known as Linseeds)

Diet Nutrition

Flax seeds, like all seeds, are a good source of polyunsaturated fats and mono-unsaturated fats. Flax seeds contain nearly two and a half times as much omega-3 as omega-6. They contain vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and essential fats.

Flax seeds contain about 14 grams of omega-3 per 100g which makes them a valuable food source of omega-3.

Adding 2 dessertspoons of mixed seeds, like flax seeds and pumpkin seeds to your daily diet can provide your entire daily intake of essential fatty acids, plus calcium, magnesium and zinc.
