Whole organic golden flax seed is produced from milling the flax 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. Golden flax meal adds a pleasant, nutty flavour and tender texture to baked products.
Organic flax meal can be added for extra nutrition to oatmeal, yogurt, salad, soup, meat loaf, muffins, 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.
