The organic brown flax meal is produced by milling the whole seed into a fine meal. Flax seeds, also known as linseeds, are an excellent source of soluble dietary fibre, complete protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. The use of flax meal as an ingredient in baked products provides a nutty flavour and tender texture.
Organic flax meal can be added for extra nutrition to oatmeal, yogurt, salad, soup, chili, meat loaf, muffin, bread, or any other food item where a nutty flavour is appropriate. When altering a baking recipe to contain 20% or more flax meal, the fat should be decreased by the equivalent amount of oil contributed by the flax meal. 1 tablespoon of organic ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons of water may serve as a replacement for 1 egg in baking by binding the other ingredients together.
