Flax, also known as common flax or linseed. It is a food and fiber crop cultivated in cooler regions of the world. Sesame seeds are widely naturalized in tropical regions around the world and are cultivated for its edible sesame seeds, which grow in pods or “buns”. So these two seeds contain a very high nutritional value. Flaxseeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acid and sesame are rich in calcium.
