Flax seeds are one of the oldest foods known to man. Remnants of flax seeds were found in an excavation in southeastern Turkey dating back almost 9000 years! Today, flax seeds are gaining consumer interest because of their high nutrient content. Flax oil derived from flax seeds is one of the highest known sources of soluble fiber, magnesium, zinc and linolenic acid (an Omega-3 fatty acid). The Omega-3 content of the oil is typically 52%. Flax seeds also provide protein, mucilage, phytosterols and plant lignans. Read more about NOW's flax seed.
