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. Two tablespoons of our Golden Flaxseed Meal offers 2430 mg of 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.

Wonderfully fresh flaxseed meal
This was finely ground enough for me to be able to mix it in my smoothie occasionally,,and its wonderful in a homemade "shake-it-up" seasoning/breading mix in a large bag (I used it for thick center cut pork chops, I found many recipes online). I plan to use it in snack breads and cookie bar crust soon...the health benefits are many, and I look forward to experimenting more with this product.

Wouldn't be without this!
I've used the Golden Flaxseed Meal for years in all my gluten free baking: breads, muffins, pizza, cakes, cookies, and waffles and pancakes. It helps the leavening to rise more and makes my products very light. When I first started using it, there was a very noticeable difference in my products, and I haven't been without it since. I highly recommend this product for use with alternative flours. (I've never used it with regular, gluten-containing flours.) It does not alter the taste.

if the milled flaxseed is with or without extraction of flaxseed oil
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product still contains the oils after grinding.
Good day,

I bought some golden flaxseed meal a few months back. The best before date has rubbed off and no longer legible. The only readable date is the one at bottom which i assume is the production date. The date reads xx/09/2017, can you please tell me the most likely expiration date of your flaxseed meal based on this information?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Our Flaxseed has a 12 month shelf life and the production date is in the DD/MM/YYYY format. This product has a best by day of September 2018. We recommend storing in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place - like the refrigerator or freezer.
what country of origin of seeds and where processed?
Hilkka Z on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Our Flaxseeds are grown in Canada. They are milled and package at our headquarters in Milwaukie, OR.
Can you use ground flaxseed instead of flaxseed meal in Bob’s Red Mill Farro Burger recipe?Would you need to adjust amount used? I only have ground flaxseed.
A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Yes, these products are the same and interchangeable in a recipe. "Flaxseed Meal" is just another term for ground Flaxseed.
What is the difference between the whole ground flaxseed meal and the golden flaxseed meal?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The only difference is the color of the flax seeds.

Quality. Integrity. Tradition.
