Flaxseed can be found in the Eastern Mediterranean Region, extending through to India. It may have been domesticated first in "The Cradle of Civilization". Nevertheless, it was cultivated extensively in Ancient Egypt and Ancient Ethiopia for its seeds and fibres. Dyed flax fibres have even been found in a prehistoric Dzudzuana Cave in the Republic of Georgia dating as early as 30,000 BC.

Whole Flaxseed: Golden or brown. A nutritional powerhouse, rich in protein, fibre and Omega 3 fatty acids. However, it cannot be digested.

Ground Flaxseed: It must be ground flax to get the benefits. The body is also able to digest it properly. It can be added to mayonnaise, mustard, yoghurt, hot or cold breakfast cereal or in cookies, muffins and bread.

  1. Whole Flax seed
  2. Ground Flax seed
