Flaxseed has an impressive nutritional value and has a favorable ratio between omega 3 and omega 6. It is also rich in fiber, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals such as B1, B11, calcium, zinc, manganese, magnesium and selenium. In addition, it is a real protein bomb with no less than 33 grams of protein per 100 grams. This is because a quarter of the linseed itself consists of proteins. Athletes as well as vegans and vegetarians can therefore do well in their breakfast in the morning or bake protein bread with it. However, it is recommended not to eat more than 15 to 45 grams of it daily, as it contains cyanogens.
It has a fairly neutral taste and can be eaten in all kinds of dishes. You can use it in yogurt, oatmeal, salad or smoothie. In addition, you can use linseed as a binding agent in baked goods such as bread, pie and cake as a replacement for eggs.
