What is ISA?
LSA is a mixture of Linseeds (flaxseeds), Sunflower seeds and Almonds. It is an awesome superfood and a nut meal supplement that is often recommended by doctors.
These 2 seeds and 1 nut, altogether, become a nutritional powerhouse and popular addition to many daily dishes at home or even in school.
Made up from around 50% linseed, 30% sunflower seeds, and 20% almonds, this makes LSA an ingredient without gluten suitable for such sweet and savory dishes. And only a small amount offers such great benefits.

Almonds include oxalates, and flax contains cyanogenic glycoside compounds, neither of which are a matter of common consumption levels but could become so if you go berserk and eat buckets of the stuff every day.
