Brown Flax VS Golden Flax

Most of the flax seed grown in North America is brown in color. Golden flax is a hybridized form of the common flax and is grown primarily as a food crop. The brown variety is grown for commercial use in the paint and solvent industries. Golden flax has several
characteristics that make it more appealing as a food and more effective as a medicine. The first major difference is in its flavor and eye appealing golden color which makes a more attractive and tasty addition to the diet. Golden flax is also. higher in Omega 3 fatty acid content and has a higher soluble fiber content, making it that much more effective for cancer patients, diabeties, and for lowering cholesterol. Golden Flax seed meal can be used as a better alternative to other fiber supplements like bran or psyllium husk.
