Renowned for their nutritional benefits--fiber, lignans (phytochemicals associated with reduced risk of cancer) and omega-3 fatty acids--flaxseeds also contribute a delicious nutty taste to baked goods. Flaxseeds can be found in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and in natural-foods stores. The seeds must be ground for your body to take advantage of the nutrients. Ground seeds are highly perishable, so grind them just before using. Store whole flaxseeds in the refrigerator or freezer.
