Flax seeds (or linseeds) are considered as the superfood of the European region. They are rich in nutrients and fibres. Contain a phytoestrogen (lignan), which may have a positive effect on the hormonal system, can facilitate ovulation and reduce the unpleasant symptoms of menopause. When the whole seed is consumed, intestinal function is facilitated, which helps digestion.
Since whole flaxseeds often pass right through your digestive system, eating flaxseed flour ensures that your body absorbs its valuable nutrients and vitamins. Grapoila linseed flour is actually a fat-reduced and ground version of linseeds.
The consuption of linseed flour may reduce the formation of gastric acid.
In home cooking and baking traditional flours can be partially (up to 30%) replaced by flaxseed flour. You can add it to the dough or sprinkle on top of pastries and scones. It can be also mixed into salads, muesli or curd cheese. It is also a great natural, glutenfree thickener, as it can absorb a huge amount of liquids and fats.
