Linseed is favoured in rations for ruminants, horses, and sometimes, for sow diets, but is rarely used for poultry because of its poor amino acid profile, its high fibre, and its laxative nature. Poultry, beef, pork, milk and eggs can be modified by the dietary lipid profile fed to the animal, allowing the producer to produce high quality food products with added omega-3 fatty acids for the discerning consumer. Since flax is grown in fields with higher levels of selenium, linseed meal contains a higher selenium content than other feeds.
