Flaxseed, Golden – Photo and Description from Vegan Venue
Flaxseed, Golden is a vegan pantry ingredient that we keep in our freezer to preserve freshness. We blend them into our smoothies in our vita-mix.
More About Golden Flaxseed:
Flaxseed can also be spelled or written, flax seed, or referred to as linseed, because the plant fiber is used to make linen; all names are correct. In this enlarged photo of golden flaxseed we can more easily see what they look like, including a split seed on the left of the photo. Flax seeds are also the most widely available botanical source of omega-3 fatty acids. We freeze our raw golden flaxseeds to prevent them from spoiling, and add 3 heaping tablespoons of the raw whole flax seeds in our blender container to make 2 quarts of fruit or green smoothies.
According to the literature that we’ve seen, golden flaxseed was developed for human consumption, because of its nutty-buttery flavor. The nutritional value of golden flaxseed vs. dark or brown flaxseed is very similar, which is confirmed by information printed on product packaging. We could not find any comprehensive nutritional information for these raw seeds. (See the general nutritional flaxseed information listed with dark flaxseed)
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat. In this section of our web site we have included them for reference. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
