Linseed is the seed that comes from flax, an annual plant. It contains vitamins of the B complex, vitamin E, soluble and insoluble fibers, omega-3 fatty acid, strong antioxidants, as well as metals such as magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc and selenium. Linseed can help reduce the levels of cholesterol, stabilize the levels of sugar in the blood and fight cancer, while it prevents bone loss and it boosts the immune system. It has a delicate, sweet taste that is similar to that of walnuts. Linseeds can be consumed with breakfast cereals, in salads or with a little honey, but first they should be soaked in water for a whole night, so that their shell can become soft. They can also be added in various soups and in yoghurt, while, in the form of flour, they can be used in a range of bakery products, in hamburgers and in various sauces.
