Linseed also known a Flax seed, is a member of the plant genus Linum. It is both a food and a fiber crop mainly cultivated in cooler regions around the world and it one of natures great gifts to mankind.

Textiles made from Linseed (Flax) fibre are known in the Western world as linen. Oil from Linseed is one of the most widely used natural oils. Linseed oil is used as a preservative for wood, concrete, as an ingredient in paints, varnishes, and stains. It is also used in soaps, inks, and in the production of linoleum for flooring.

Linseed occurs in two basic varieties: brown or yellow. They brown varieties have similar nutritional characteristics and equal numbers of short-chain omega-3 fatty acids. The exception is the yellow variety, which is very low in omega-3s.
