Q. My store carries both brown and golden flaxseed. Is one better than the other?
A: Golden and brown flaxseed both contain the same nutritional benefits in terms of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, protein and dietary fibre. It's a matter of choice, but be assured that you can substitute golden for brown and vice versa without sacrificing any of the natural goodness in flaxseed.
