Flaxseed Meal has a mild, nutty flavor and contains a wealth of omega-3 fatty acids. Our flaxseed meal is cold milled to preserve the freshness and nutrition of its precious oils. Add it 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 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. Find recipes and tips for flaxseed meal in our recipe collection.

Really nice nutty flavor - similar to wheat germ. I use it in my oatmeal, on yogurt, add it to breadcrumbs for an extra flavor & nutrition boost.

Horses love it, and I appreciate and know the quality.
I confess... I buy only Bob's Red Mill Flax Meal, for my horses. Yes, they love it! It makes their fur soft and shiny, and they lick their bowls clean. If it shines up the outsides, it must be good for the insides, too. 2/3rds cup a day will do a fine horse just fine.

Great with my hot or cold cereal
I’ve been buying the flaxseed meal for several years to add to my oatmeal or granola. It’s a great source of omegas and adds some protein. I wouldn’t want to do without it.

My vet recommended I supplement my horse's diet with flaxseed meal because his skin was dry and itchy. I researched the fancy horse supplements out there, but Bob's Red Mill flaxseed meal had the highest content of Omega 3's, and pound-for-pound at the best price. My horse loves it, and now his coat is soft and shiny and he's not so itchy!

The substitution suggestion (for up to 25% of the flour in a recipe) doesn't specify if it's 25% in volume or weight of the flour. What do you do?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! This substitution is based on volume. For example, if your recipe calls for 1 cup of flour you can use 3/4 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of flaxseed meal in your recipe.
I am a Health Coach and use your Organic whole ground flaxseed meal daily (usually 2-3 tlbs). Can you give me the complete Nutrition breakdown, ie Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and other Omega's. Is it equivilant to Super Omega-3 (Fish oil supplements)?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Two Tablespoons of our Flaxseed Meal contains 2430 mg of Omega 3's. According to the Flax Council of Canada, flax does not contain DHA or EPA. Rather, it contains alpha-linolenic acid or ALA, for short. All are omega-3 fatty acids. In the omega-3 family, ALA is the essential fatty acid, meaning that it must be supplied in our diets because our bodies do not make it. Our bodies make DHA and EPA in small amounts from ALA and also take in some DHA and EPA from fish, fish oil, algae supplements, and a few more sources. Because of this we do not have DHA and EPA amounts. If you are looking to supplement your diet with DHA and EPA directly, you may consider fish oil as a source instead of flax or if you are vegetarian/vegan, you can get an algae based supplement that contains both.
Hello where are these flaxseeds grown from?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. We source our Flaxseeds from both the United States and Canada. We hope you enjoy them if you try them!
Is this manufactured in a facility that also processes tree nuts and/or peanuts?
ann w on Dec 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product is processed in a facility that also processes almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, coconut, macadamia nuts, soy, oats, sesame seeds, and corn ingredients on shared lines (no peanuts). Despite thorough and stringent cleaning processes there is a possibility for cross contact.
Is this product corn and soy free?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Our Flaxseed Meal is corn and soy free, but we do process corn and soy in our facility, so there is potential for cross contact. Please feel free to call us directly at 1-800-349-2173 or email us at customerservice@bobsredmill.com if you have any further questions.
What is the difference between the "Whole Grain" and the "Golden" flaxseed meal?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2018
Flaxseed Meal
Flaxseed Meal
Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal
Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal
BEST ANSWER: They are actually both "Whole Ground", meaning ground from whole flax seeds. The Organic Golden version is a different variety of seed than the brown version which is just labeled "Flaxseed Meal." Nutritionally they are the same, but the golden version has a slightly milder, less nutty flavor. Only packages that are labeled as "Organic" are organically grown. If the package does not say "Organic" the seeds are conventionally produced.
Is Flaxseed Meal the same thing as Ground Flaxseed?
Karen J on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, 'meal' and 'ground' mean the same thing and can be used interchangeably.
Is this product non gmo?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, this product is cold milled.
Is it ok to keep unrefrigerated? I have it in my office at work for my oatmeal.
A shopper on Jan 5, 2018
