Flaxseed and Camelina Meals as Potential Sources of Health-Beneficial Compounds - Silvia Tavarini, Marinella De Leo, Roberto Matteo, Luca Lazzeri, Alessandra Braca and Luciana G. Angelini – Plants 2021

Flaxseed and camelina meals could be considered as potential dietary sources of health-beneficial compounds, able to play an important role in the reduction in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cancer, and other chronic conditions.
