Although traditional flaxseed has been consumed in various forms for over 5,000 years, peer-reviewed publications of its nutritional attributes and assessment of its safety for human consumption have only appeared in the past few years. Thus, the presentations in this book vary from classical reviews to new and sometimes preliminary research results.
