Flaxseed (also known as linseed) - although tiny - pack an impressive nutritional punch. Rightfully called a plant 'superfood', flax have been around for centuries and are now widely available worldwide.

Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, fibre, calcium, magnesium and lignans, these seeds can be eaten whole, although are best absorbed when consumed ground.
