Organic Flaxseed Meal has a mild, nutty flavor and contains a wealth of omega-3 fatty acids. We carefully cold mill our certified organic brown flaxseeds to preserve the freshness and nutrition of their precious oils. Add flaxseed meal to smoothies, cereals, and baked goods for a wholesome nutritional boost.


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 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 Organic 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.

I put Bob's Red Mill organic milled flax seed in just about every thing I bake. Pancakes, oatmeal, even meat loaf. It has a fresh, nutty flavor that I can taste and I know is doing good things for my health.

Finding whole seeds in this product.
I love Bob's Red Mill products and buy them at my local grocery store. I started buying the organic flax meal expecting no whole seeds in the product, but every time I use it (which is about 1 1/2 tablespoons a day in my food) I must first go through the amount I use to pick out all the whole seeds in it! I buy the already ground up flax seeds because I can't eat seeds because of a health condition (diverticulitis.) I'm so disappointed.

Nice Nutty Flavor
This flax seed meal is ready to use on oatmeal or P B & J's or in a quick stir-fry or omelet, just to name a few of the way I enjoy it's mildly nutty flavor and health benefits. I keep a small jar of it on the kitchen counter along with other frequently used seasonings.

This is an excellent quality product, and has a great price, too! I really like that I can get my Omega 3's without eating fish or other non-vegetarian foods.

I like adding this to my hot cereal in the mornings as well as some of my baked goods. Good for our digestion and a host of other health benefits. Plus add to my yogurt and smoothies ... it's a great "go to" for giving snacks more thickness - keeps you fuller longer.
