Abstract

Fish oil is the traditional source of dietary omega-3 fatty acids, while flaxseed oil can be used as a vegetarian
source of dietary omega-3 fatty acids. The flaxseed hull is a concentrated source of lignan, which might possess
impressive cancer preventive properties, especially against breast and colon cancer. In functional foods arena, flaxseed has resurged as a potential ingredient with a vast array of medical benefits. Flaxseed supplemented food products are gaining popularity because of its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, protein, soluble fiber and phytochemicals. This paper describes about the development of biofortified linseed genotypes with enhanced alpha - linolenic acid (ALA), and lignan, predominantly the secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG).
