Linseeds/Flax Seed


Are Linseeds And Flaxseeds The Same Thing?

Linseeds and flaxseeds are the same thing when it comes to buying edibles here is South Africa. Nutritionally they are the same, the only difference can be seen in the plant itself. The confusing comes from the two big English-speaking countries. In the UK, they distinguish between linseed and flax, while in the United States and Canada, they refer to both as flax. As we get more influence from the American language, especially in the food industry, it seems the lines have become blurred.

Linseed is a shorter plant, with lots of branches and lots of seeds. Flaxseed is taller (3 foot) with fewer branches. Therefore, linseed is good for creating oil and flax has longed been used to make linen, rope, and nets. There is even a boat called Flaxland, made completely of flax.

Linseeds are low in carbohydrates, gluten-free, high in protein and very high in fibre. It has a pleasant nutty taste. It can be sprinkled over salads, baked on/in bread, or added to your smoothies.

But ground up it is much easier to reap all the nutrients from the little seed…
