Description: Our Linseed is a tasty way of adding extra fibre to your daily diet, it’s also high in omega 3 fatty acid and is gluten and lactose free, with a variety of delicious uses for adding a flavoursome buttery-nuttiness and crunch to your meals. Organic linseeds are harvested from an upright annual plant native to south-west Asia and south-eastern Europe, which grows up to 1.2 metres high, with slender stems. The leaves thin, lanceolate and 20-40mm in length and glaucous-green in colour. The 5-petaled flowers are an iridescent pale blue in colour with darker blue vertical veining and are 15–25mm in diameter with a yellowish ‘eye’ at the centre of the petals. When the petals fall, fruit capsules appear in the shape of segmented globes, 5–9 mm diameter; beige-brown to dark brown in colour, each capsule contains several glossy brown seeds shaped like an apple pip which are approximately 4–7mm in length.
