  • Isn't flax seed a grain?

    "It may be tiny, but itís mighty: The flax seed carries one of the biggest nutrient payloads on the planet. And while itís not technically a grain, it has a similar vitamin and mineral profile to grains, ... but has far less carbohydrate content, making it ideal for low carb diets."
