If you’re struggling to find the right flax seed, take a look at some of the ingredients that have been linked to better cholesterol levels, lower risk of heart disease and diabetes and even prevent cancer.
But the best option is probably a little less healthy, according to a new study.
The study, published in the British Medical Journal, looked at how flax seeds affect cholesterol levels in people who eat flaxseeds.
There’s not much to say about the benefits of flax for you but you should be aware that the seeds contain a very high level of cholesterol.
For example, a 10g serving of flac seed contains a whopping 16.8mg of cholesterol, according the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A 10g bag of flaked flax can contain between 4 and 8g of cholesterol per serving.
However, the flax itself does not contain any cholesterol and it doesn’t have to be digested by your body in the same way as a high-fiber food like white rice.
What we are looking at is how flac seeds affect our cholesterol levels when we eat them, according a report published by the British Journal of Nutrition (BJN).
The researchers from the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Leicester found that a flax meal containing 10g of flakies (or flaxmeal) contained between 2 and 7.5mg of total cholesterol.
The researchers said this was higher than the typical flax breakfast or snack, which typically contains less than 2g of total fat.
The flax was also much less likely to be processed, as the researchers found that the flac meal was processed in the digestive system.
It may also mean that flax is more likely to pass into the bloodstream, which can have some health benefits.
“Our study is the first to show that flac is a better source of dietary cholesterol than other sources, and to show how flactose (the fat in flax) affects our cholesterol status,” said study co-author Professor Simon Pertwee, from the department of nutritional sciences at the university.
The paper’s findings are important, as flax has been associated with lowering cholesterol levels for some time.
“Although flax does not directly contribute to cholesterol, it may be a better alternative for people who have low-cholesterol diets,” said Dr Joanna Williams from the National Institute for Health Research.
However the study also found that flasmeals may actually be slightly higher in cholesterol than flax.
A flax-flax meal had an estimated cholesterol of 15mg.
That is the same amount of cholesterol as a typical breakfast or a cup of tea, but the study found that this was lower than the cholesterol in flak and flaxmeals.
Dr Williams said it is important to note that flaking flax could be less expensive than flac and that flaked flakes have a lower saturated fat content.
She added that the study’s findings could help people understand the relationship between flax and health.
“This study is an important step towards understanding flax’s role in the diet and our overall health,” said Professor Williams.
She said it was important to keep flax as a healthy choice, but that people should not be afraid to try out other flax ingredients that they are familiar with.

However, it is still important to talk to your healthcare provider about any other ingredients you are considering adding to your diet, including flax, to ensure they are safe.”
