- Flaxseed is a non-toxic, dietary wholegrain composed of omega-3 fatty acids and a lignan complex (FLC) with potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-fibrotic properties.
- Loaded with protein, carbs, fiber,omega-3 fatty acids, and B-Vitamins, these are a powerhouse of nutrients.
- This chutney is rich in fiber and aids digestion.
- Prefer having raw and freshly powdered flaxseeds as the Omega-3 in them is sensitive to heat and air exposure.

Should we use the soaked flax seeds and sesame seeds…as they contain phytic acid
Soaking flaxseeds in this recipe with give it a gel-like consistency and also since Omega-3 in them is sensitive to heat and air exposure. As for the sesame seeds, yes you can soak, pat dry and then roast them before adding it to the recipe.
