Scientific Name - Linum usitatissimum
Local Name- Alsi/ Flax/Linseed
Flaxseeds, tiny but mighty, one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods, the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well protein, fibre and antioxidants which are essential for good health. Additionally, flaxseed contributes to the texture of foods and imparts a nutty flavour when added to recipes.
Indian origin flaxseeds contain more oil/alpha-linolenic acid (ALA/omega-3 fatty acid) naturally than the flaxseeds grown in other countries. This quality makes Indian flaxseeds more nutritious and healthier.
