What is it?

Also called linseeds, flaxseeds come from the flax plant. The seeds have an earthy aroma and nutty flavor. It is tiny with a brown or yellow or golden in color and has a hard covering.

Flax seeds come from a plant, a crop that has been grown for thousands of years. Knotted wild flax fibers had been found in caves dating 30,000 years ago. Remnants of flax seeds had been found in Stone Age dwellings in Europe where they are believed to have originated. However, extensive uses of this seed were largely found in Egypt where it was utilized as food, medicine and linen. Mummies found in early Egyptian tombs were wrapped in linen cloth made from flax—an indication of its existence as far back as 5,000BC.

As civilization spread so did flax seeds. In France, linen-making with flax was developed in 700AD. Flax linen spinning was practiced by Flemish workers back in the 1600s. Commercial production of flax fiber started and progressed in the US and Canada in the late 1700s up to the early 1800s. Today, the major producers of flax are Poland, Soviet Union, and France.
