Fun facts

Health benefits of flax seeds: * If you are a vegetarian or do not eat fish, flax seed can be your best source of omega-3 fats. They are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), mainly vegetable omega-3 fatty acids. ALA is one of the two essential fatty acids you need to get from the food you eat because your body does not produce them. * Lignans are plant compounds with antioxidant and estrogenic properties, both of which can help reduce the risk of cancer and improve health. Interestingly, flax seeds contain up to 800 times more lignans than other plant foods. Observational studies show that people who eat flax seed have a lower risk of breast cancer, especially in postmenopausal women. * Only one tablespoon of flax seeds contains 3 grams of fiber, which is 8-12% of the recommended daily intake of men and women, respectively. In addition, flax seeds contain two types of fiber: soluble (20-40%) and insoluble (60-80%). This fiber duo is digested by bacteria in the colon, collects feces and results in more regular bowel movements. On the one hand, soluble fiber increases the consistency of your intestines and slows down your digestion. It has been shown to help regulate blood sugar and lower cholesterol * Another health benefit of flax seeds is their ability to lower cholesterol. In one study in people with high cholesterol, three tablespoons (30 grams) of flax seed powder a day reduced total cholesterol by 17% and "bad" LDL cholesterol by almost 20% for three months. * Flax seed is an excellent source of plant protein and there is a growing interest in flax seed protein and its health benefits. Flax seed protein is rich in the amino acids arginine, aspartic acid and glutamic acid. * Type II diabetes is a major health problem worldwide. It is characterized by high blood sugar levels due to the body's inability or secretion to secrete insulin. According to some studies, people with type 2 diabetes who have added 10 to 20 grams of flax seed powder to their daily diet for at least one month have a reduced blood sugar level of 8 to 20%.

Recipe 9 breads Ingredients: 100 g of flax seed 85 ml of water 1/2 teaspoon salt Preparation: Take a blender and place the flax seeds in it. (It is easier to crush flax seed in larger quantities.) Puree the flax seeds until you have a flour-like mass. This will take a few minutes.

Place the linseed flour in a bowl. Add salt to the flour and mix. Then pour small amounts of room temperature water into the flour. The dough should not be too watery, but it should also not be too dry. When the flour has become a beautiful collapsible dough, mix it and set it aside for a while.

Take the baking paper and place the dough in the middle of it. Cover the dough with parchment paper and roll with a rolling pin. Then take a jar and cut circular breads from the dough with the edge of the jar.

Heat the grill pan on the stove. When the grill pan is hot, place the bread on the pan. Fry each side for 3-5 minutes. Serve with breadcrumbs and salad. Bon Appetit!
