Where Does Organic Brown Flaxseed Come From?
The exact origins of flaxseed are hard to say. It's believed the earliest archaeological evidence of wild flax seeds comes from 8000 BC Europe. But it wasn?t until 6000 BC when larger sites of cultivated flaxseeds were found. Nutritional historians, therefore, believe we began farming flaxseeds from 6000 BC onwards. Now, because of the cooler climates in which the flax plant can be grown, flax seeds are grown all over the world.
