Flax bread is a great source of Omega 3 oil and Omega 6 fatty acids not available in a typical diet. They are considered essential fatty acids, meaning that they cannot be synthesized by the human body but are vital for normal metabolism. Flax seeds come in two basic varieties: brown; and yellow or golden. Most types have similar nutritional characteristics. Because flax seed is high in Omega 3 and 6, it is a great addition to any diet for health benefits similar to taking fish oil. People on a vegan diet can and do use flax oil in place of fish oil. There is research showing more health benefits of flax seed and flax bread including reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.
