Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal
907 g
Although Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its primary healthy reputation to three of them: omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans and fiber. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are “good” fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s. Lignans have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75 to 80 times more lignans than other plant foods. Flaxseed Meal is high in dietary fiber containing both the soluble and insoluble types. It’s also a powerful natural cholesterol controller. Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal is freshly milled to preserve the natural oils and nutrients.

Flaxseed meal can provide a nutritional punch to many baked goods. Add flaxseed meal to bread, pancakes, muffins, bars, cookies and other recipes for extra nutrition and a nutty flavor. Replace oil or shortening in a recipe with ground flaxseed. Substitute flaxseed at a 3:1 ratio for best results. Use flaxseed meal as an egg replacer in recipes for muffins, cakes, cookies, and pancakes. Use one tablespoon of flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons of liquid to replace each egg called for in the recipe. Reduce the flour in a recipe by up to 25 percent and replace it with ground flaxseed.

ASHLEIGH: a few months ago

this stuff works great in baked goods and oatmeal. I get the benefits without any unpleasant texture or taste

Handy to keep around as a substitute for eggs in baking when I'm out of eggs or want to use eggs for something else like an omelette. Flax eggs are economical and easy to make (1T flax powder 3T water, mix and refrigerate for 15 min). As a bonus this is super good for the health without costing an arm and a leg like some other health foods. Flax used to be considered way out there about 15 years back but now it seems to be considered pretty normal to have around. Good size for the price, trust this brands quality because it's well known.

I use this in just about all of my baking, especially when I want to kick up the nutritional value a notch!
