Flax seeds are slightly larger than sesame seeds and have a hard shell that is smooth and shiny. Their color ranges from deep amber to reddish brown. The warm, earthy and subtly nutty flavor of flaxseeds combined with an abundance of omega – 3 fatty acids makes them an increasingly popular addition to the diets of many health conscious consumers. Flaxseeds are rich in alpha linolenic acid, an omega – 3 fat that is a precursor to the form of omega – 3 found in fish oils called eicosapentaenoic acid.
