Benefits and nutritional values of palm oil
Extract from the Indian Journal of Applied Research
Flaxseeds have been used since Antiquity, when Egyptians used them as both food and medicine. The Latin name of linseed/flaxseed, linum usitatissimum, means “very useful”. Flaxseeds come from the two basic varieties: brown or yellow/gold (also known as golden seeds). This analysis, published in the Indian Journal of Applied Research, highlights the potential of flax seeds and their role as therapeutic medicinal products.
Table 1. Nutritional Values of Flaxseeds
Flax seeds are the source of some of the most important oils used in the food industry. Almost every part of the plant is used for commercial purposes, both before and after processing.
First, linseed oil is rich in grains and omega-3 and protein. ANG on the fact that it is one of the richest sources of alinolenic acid and lignans oil, flax seed are an essential source of high quality protein and also is considered an important source of phenolic compounds.
Thus, linseed oil is presented as a food ingredient which is rich in alinoolenic acids, lignans and fibers. W hen we talk about IBS compounds its emphasis on fitoestrogenele of omega 3 and lignans from flax, both with numerous benefits for certain disorders and affections faced by people.
Methods of data collection
The data presented in this article has been collected from various articles about the benefits of seedlings presented on websites or scientific journals such as Scopus, Purvned or Google Scholar.
Uses of linseed oil
Flaxseeds do not contain gluten and have a light hazelnut flavor. Protein content combined with fiber solubility properties make flaxseed ideal for adding gluten-free baking products as a substitute for egg: one teaspoon of flour mixed with 3 teaspoons of water can be used as a substitute.
Applications as a dietary supplement:
- Lignan supplements;
- Fiber supplements;
- Protein components.
Applications as an ingredient in food:
- Bread and other bakery products such as cakes, biscuits or other gluten-free products. Adding to these products results in an improved, crisper texture .
- Healthy snacks such as protein sticks.
Omega 3 fatty acids
There is a certain amount of omega 6 and omega 3 that should be present in each individual’s diet . Essential oils such as linseed, peanuts or canola help to maintain and balance this balance. The benefits of alinolenic acid were highlighted when 1 g/day and 2 g/day of flax seed oil were administered.
Researchers have investigated whether omega-3 fatty acids in linseed oil help combat certain infections or treat certain conditions such as ulcer, headache, attention deficit, hyperactivity, etc.
Flaxseed and cancer
Flaxseeds have been studied for their effects on cancer. This has been done with some excellent studies by Dr. Lilian Thompson’s research group at the University of Toronto.
In a study, flaxseeds or flaxseed oil were added to the diet of mice prior given a chemical carcinogen to induce cancer.
All the treatments that consisted in the administration of flax seeds reduced metastasis – lignan contains secoisolaricysreinol diglycoside (SDG).
In another study, the lignan was administered to mice after a week of administering the carcinogen. The number of tumours was reduced by about 46%. The flax or lignan in its composition (SDG) was tested to see if it would prevent melanoma metastasis. The lignan fraction was administered to mice two weeks before and after melanoma cell injection. Flax seed treatment (at 2.5, 5 or 10% of total daily consumption) resulted in a 32, 54 and 63% reduction in tumor counts compared to the control group.
Lignan, fed in quantities equivalent to the amount of seeds of 2.5, 5 or 10% of the seeds, also reduced the tumour number from an average of 62 in the control group to 38, 36 and 29 tumours per mouse in the other group.
Flax seeds and heart disease
Recently, flaxseeds have drawn attention to their effects in cardiovascular disease, being known as an important source of alphalinolenic acid and phytoestrogen, ligands, as well as an important source of fiber.
Studies show that flax seeds can significantly reduce plasma cholesterol levels in lipoproteins, reduce postprandial glucose uptake, reduce inflammation, and increase serum levels to omega-3 fatty acids. Data on the antioxidant and anticoagulant effects of flax seed oil are inconclusive.
However, flax seeds resulted in a partial decrease in total cholesterol (4.6 ± 1.2%, P = 0.001), LDL cholesterol (7.6 ± 1.8%, P <0.001), apolipoprotein B (5.4 ± 1.4% P = 0.001) and apolipoprotein AI 1.9%, P = 0.005) on the had no effect on the lipoprotein ratios.
There were no significant effects on serum HDL cholesterol, protein serum content in carbonyl, on androgen or progestin ex vivo. Unexpectedly, the serum proteintiol groups showed significantly lower its values (10.8 ± 3.6%, P = 0.007) suggesting increased oxidation.
Flax seeds have significant benefits, being an important source of nutrients. Fiber, amino acids, protein, vitamin E, lignans – all these are meet the basic needs in the diet of an individual.
