Organic seeds of Camelina sativa are recognised to be healthy and have health benefits.
These seeds are a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is known for its healthy properties.
Including seeds of Camelina in the diet can help reduce inflammation, cholesterol levels and improve overall cardiovascular health.
The seeds of Camelina are rich in essential nutrients such as vitamins E and B, minerals such as magnesium and zinc, and antioxidants such as phenolic compounds, making them an all-round food supplement.
The high fibre content also improves digestion and helps with weight loss by creating a feeling of satiety.
As an ingredient, Camelina seeds can be used as a dressing for salads, yoghurt or oatmeal, or they can be mixed into smoothies to give a nutritious effect.
The high Omega-3 content, as in other ALA-rich seeds, may cause a mild blood-thinning effect. Caution should be exercised in people taking blood thinners or with bleeding disorders.
Although they are a valuable addition to a balanced and healthy diet, it is important to exercise moderation in order to enjoy the nutritional value of safflower seeds.
The seeds of Camelina have a pleasant, mildly spicy taste. These small seeds are reminiscent of horseradish, radish or turnip with a barely perceptible spiciness and will flavour porridge and add a gourmet taste to all dishes.
