Natur'InovBrown linseed - organic
Brown linseeds are used in a lot of cooking recipes and have many health beneficial properties.
Linseeds are an excellent vegetable source of omega-3 fatty acids, which protect the cardiovascular system, and contain a high proportion of lignans, with anti-cancer properties, and fibres rich in mucilage which provide protection and comfort for the intestinal transit.
For a better assimilation of their valuable nutrients it is better to consume linseeds raw and crushed or ground (e.g. in a coffee-mill). As such they can be sprinkled on salads, breakfast, blended in a cold sauce, yoghurt or fresh cheese. Depending on the temperatures, cooking may affect the polyunsaturated lipids but the properties related to linseeds fibres and mucilages (protection of gastrointestinal mucosa, improving bowel movement, drop of high blood pressure levels...) are safe and provided by cooked dishes in which are incorporated whole linseeds (bread dough, pie ..) or crushed or ground linseeds (sauces, meatloaf, baked breadcrumbs) or on which are sprinkled crushed linseeds (crisps and crumbles fruit or vegetables in muffins, cakes, cakes ...).
Also very rich in fibres: dried figs, prunes, psyllium, chiaseeds, coconut meal, tigernut flour, cocoa beans or cocoa powder,....
