And you know what the best part is? Flax is great for you! While it is technically a seed, not a grain, it has a similar vitamin and mineral profile, but is low in carbohydrates. This mighty little seed is high in most of the B vitamins as well as magnesium and manganeses. But, that is just the beginning! Flax is also a great source of Omega 3’s, especially alpha linolenic, fiber and phytochemicals.
