What’s The Deal About Flax?
Source: http://www.dietaryfiberfood.com/nutrition/flax-seed.php
Whole flax seed (ground meal, powder or intact seed) contains 28% dietary
fiber, (7 – 10% soluble fiber, 11 - 18% insoluble fiber), 40% fat (73% of it
being polyunsaturated fatty acids), and 21% protein. Other flax seed
nutrients include vitamins E and B, phytosterols, and mineral nutrients
such as calcium, iron, and potassium. More than 50% of the fat in flax seed
is an essential omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which
makes flax seed the richest plant source of dietary omega-3 fatty acids. Flax
seed is rich in antioxidants, such as lignans (also a phytosterogen) and other
phenolic molecules. Unlike the ground meal and powder, flax seed oil
contains no dietary fiber.
