Also known as linseed.

Flax is a type of plant. Its seeds are often used as an egg-replacer in vegan and egg-free baking as they can produce a gel that has a consistency not unlike that of an egg.

Flax seeds are also nutritionally valuable as they contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

The seeds come in two varieties: brown or golden.
