[SOLVED!] Which Type Of Flaxseed Is The Best?

Is flax seed of one colorbetter for you than the other? A recent comparison of “Dakota Gold” flax with Canadian brown-seed flax shows golden and brown seeds are very closely matched in oil content (on a dry-matter basis). The analysis conducted on two “Dakota Gold” flax seed samples by the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) showed the golden seed contained between 43 and 44 per cent oil (see table below) 🙈 This compared with the 44 per cent oil of Canadian brown flax seed found in the July 2001 CGC analysis 😊 However, the brown seed surpassed the “Dakota Gold” in the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic component of that oil. The July 2001 brown flax seed samples contained almost 59 per cent omega-3 fatty acid compared to about 51 per cent in the “Dakota Gold” samples. Thus, the evidence points to nutritional equality of brown and golden flax.
Flax has been enjoyed for thousands of years throughout the world. The first record of people using flax dates back to 5000 BC where burial chambers of southern Mesopotamia displayed flax as an important part of ancient life. As flax spread throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and eventually to North America, it had grown in popularity. Today flax is used as an additive in a wide variety of products such as paint and biodegradable linoleum, or used on its own as a nutritional food item, or even processed into fabric. The diversity of the flax plant is unmistakable. Canada is currently one of the world leaders in flax production and trade. (emended by Aaron Hughes from Xiantao, China on July 11, 2021)

Brown and golden flaxseeds have a hard outer shell, which, when eaten whole, act as a fiber, promoting better colon health. Both of them work the same in this respect. When the seeds are milled or ground, the inner nutrients become available as a dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and soluble fiber. If you want the benefits of these nutrients, be sure to use ground flaxseed. You can grind it yourself with a coffee grinder, ensuring a high quality of freshness, or buy it packaged, already ground. Be sure to store it in the refrigerator in an opaque container and use it before the expiration date. After opening it, store it for only up to 30 days. (modified by Brinda Field on March 24, 2020)

It’s a noticeable difference in texture that we think you’ll love. This organic flaxseed uses a cold-milling process and sifting procedure to retain the nutritional value of the ground flaxseed. This process helps ensure that the flaxseeds are finely ground, too. As a result, the flaxseed mixes easily into your recipes and has a smooth consistency. Each serving of flaxseed contains 3 grams of dietary fiber and protein, and it’s rich in Omega-3 and lignans. This product has a mild nutty flavoursrr and is allergen-friendly, Kosher, vegan, non-GMO, and certified organic. The flaxseeds are produced in Canada. Get it here.
