General Characteristics
 - Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is one of the oldest cultivated crops, having been grown since the beginning of civilization. It is native to the region extending from the eastern Mediterranean to India and was probably first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent. Flax was grown primarily for use in linens. Burial chambers dating back to about 3000 B.C. depict flax cultivation and contained clothing made from flax fibers
 - Flax  is a member of Linaceae family. It is grown throughout the world including Canada, India, China, United States, Ethiopia and all over Europe. Linseed is grown mainly for fibre, oil, pharmaceutical and ornamental plants. Apart from food use linseed oil is used in allied industries also due to its polymerization property. The plant produces spherical fruit capsules containing around 10 kernels per compartment. The kernels have a crisp and chewy texture and a pleasant, nutty taste. Linseed is the richest source of omega-3 fatty acids. It contains 50-60% linolenic acid which offers several health benefits such as lowering serum cholesterol, reduces blood pressure and thus maintaining the health in cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, asthma and arthritis
