Flax seed is touted as a "super food" because of its impressive nutritional profile. In addition to providing an abundance of vitamin B1, copper, magnesium and phosphorus, less than 3 tablespoons provides more than 15% of the daily recommended amount of fiber and a whopping 130% of omega-3 fatty acids.

Use flax seed liberally in casseroles, salads, vegetable dishes, cereals, breads, muffins—even homemade pizza crust.

what else you should know

organic flax seeds

Flax seed is a rich source of many nutrients, including protein, fiber, mucilage, trace minerals and more omega-3 fatty than fish oil. Flax seed is also abundant in a class of plant compounds called lignans, which are potent antioxidants with phytoestrogenic properties. In order to benefit from the dietary fiber, however, it is necessary to grind the seed.

Aside from being a source food and fiber for cloth and paper, flax has been used for other practical purposes. During times of flood, for example, flax seed has been stuffed into sacks to absorb water and purposely block drains to reduce the threat of sewer backup. Once the floodwater receded, a string tied to the sack ensured its later retrieval.
