Flaxseed, Golden

Flaxseed, Golden
(Flaxseed, Golden) Flaxseed can also be spelled or written, flax seed, or referred to as linseed, because the plant fiber is used to make linen; all names are correct. In this enlarged photo of golden flaxseed we can more easily see what they look like, including a split seed on the left of the photo. Flax seeds are also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. We freeze our raw golden flaxseeds to prevent them from spoiling, and add 3 heaping tablespoons of the raw whole flax seeds in our blender container to make 2 quarts of fruit or green smoothies. According to the literature that we've seen, golden flaxseed was developed for human consumption, because of its nutty-buttery flavor. The nutritional value of golden flaxseed vs. dark or brown flaxseed is very similar, which is confirmed by information printed on product packaging. We could not find any comprehensive nutritional information for raw golden flaxseed. (See the general nutritional flaxseed information listed with dark flaxseed)

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
