Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal is ground on cool mills which both preserves the healthful oils and increases bioavailability of nutrients. Very mild-flavored, sprinkle over just about any dish to add omega-3 fatty acids and fiber to your diet.


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 ground flaxseed 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 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.

The meal smells like plastic
Unfortunately, I have to write a negative review. I have been buying this meal for several years and it has been great. But the last package I bought smelled like plastic, most probably the smell came from the packaging material. The expiration date was fine. Probably the conditions in the store where I bought it were not right for this product (too warm, for example). Then it's not the responsibility of the producer. The smell of plastic was very strong. I put the meal into a glass jar right away and left the jar open, thought the smell will go away. It didn't go away. Definitely, the meal is not consumable. If you are interested I bought the spoiled package in a store in Brooklyn, NY.

Great food
I used to buy Oatmeal with Flaxseed in it by Aldi company,which I liked alot but when I had to go on this low sodium diet due to my heart attack and surgery I had to give it up. With Bob's Golden Flaxseed Meal, I make rolled oats and put a 1/2 cup of the flaxseed meal in it. Turns out great. I use Bob's Oatmeal also.
Both are great eating. Very enjoyable.

We love Bob’s Red Mill products.
The flaxseed has excellent quality, tastes great. My wife and I put it in our oatmeal every morning. I even feed some for my dog’s dinner every evening.
I heard it cleans colon well.

I like the Golden Flax Meal for children. The light color is easy to place under peanut butter and cheese sandwiches without the little ones even knowing...

Flaxseed makes me "lighter"
I make smoothies of apple, carrot, ginger, banana and flaxseed meal. Totally delicious. The organic flaxseed meal makes the consistency thicker, sweeter and nuttier. Without the flaxseed, it is just a drink, not a meal.

I use Flaxseed Meal in most of my yeast breads, quick breads, and even some of my cookies to boost nutrition. I use 1/2 cup in my Oat-Wheat-Flax Buns, which makes for a very light texture.

Flaxseeds are rich in omega 3 oils. If you don't like fish, flaxseed will do you well including help you with "regularity".

A great quality, fresh product from Bob's Red Mill! Incredible nutrition as an addition to yogurt, cereal, granola, and baked goods. Yum. We particularly like the golden flax, as it seems to be a bit more tender and milder tasting than regular brown flax seed.

I used to be able to find Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal at Trader Joe's stores, but then they replaced it with a flaxseed meal that does not taste nearly as good. My favorite is the Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal and I am grateful for its high quality and freshness and for your Cyber Sale!
Linda G on Nov 26, 2017
A friend gave us some organic 100% whole ground flaxseed meal to try and we have enjoyed it very much. I saw where you changed your packaging and I hope I just ordered the same thing. The nutrition facts are a little different than what is on my bag and I sent an email asking if this was the same stuff but I have not gotten an answer and we are about to run out so I am keeping my fingers crossed. I ordered 4 bags!!
