  • Although high a-linolenic acid flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) is one of the richest dietary sources of a-linolenic acid and is also a good source of soluble fibre mucilage, it is relatively unstudied in human nutrition. Healthy female volunteers consumed 50 g ground, raw flaxseed/d for 4 weeks which provided 12-13% of energy intake (24-25 g/100 g total fat). Flaxseed raised a-linolenic acid and long-chain 12-3 fatty acids in both plasma and erythrocyte lipids, as well as raising urinary… CONTINUE READING
