Golden Flaxseed Meal is just as nutritious and tasty as brown flaxseed meal but with a lighter golden color. Keep refrigerated for freshness.


Flaxseed was cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC. In the 8th century, King Charlemagne believed so strongly in the health benefits of flaxseed that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume it. Now, thirteen centuries later, some experts say we have preliminary research to back up what Charlemagne suspected.

Although 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. Our Golden Flaxseed Meal is freshly milled to preserve the natural oils and nutrients. There is no nutritional difference between golden and brown flaxseed meal.

Golden 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.

  3. Low Carb Nutritious Delishiousness

    by e-i on 05 Mon,2012

    As a diabetic, I'm always looking for low-carb food options. Also like things that are nutrition-packed and easy to use. My sister gave me a recipe for low-carb flax buns that have less than 1 carb each and I ran right out and bought the ingredients. The buns are terrific.
