Golden Flaxseed

Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Cook's Basics -

Golden Flaxseed, also known as Lin­seed, comes from the flax plant. This plant is cul­ti­vated for its fiber and its seeds, which are a lit­tle larger than sesame seeds and have a nutty flavor. Golden Flaxseeds con­tain di­etary fi­bre, omega-3 fatty acids in the form of ALA (al­pha-linolenic acid) and lig­ans, a com­pound that helps block the for­ma­tion of tu­mors, ef­fec­tively pro­tect­ing one against cer­tain types of can­cers es­pe­cially breast, colon and prostate can­cers. Be­ing an ex­cel­lent source of fi­bre, Golden Flaxseeds help to con­trol and may even help pre­vent high blood pres­sure, re­duce one’s risk of suf­fer­ing from car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases, reg­u­lates blood sugar lev­els es­pe­cially in di­a­bet­ics and helps re­duce LDL choles­terol (bad choles­terol) lev­els.
