№ 4 Flaxseed Meal



Ratio to
White Flour
See below

Flaxseed meal is made best by cold-milling (grinding) flaxseeds.  The cold-milling process eliminates any heat destruction of flaxseed’s nutritional benefits.

Two tablespoons, 28g, of flaxseed meal contains 2g of omega-3 fatty acids.  Flaxseed has the highest concentration of polyphenols; 75 times more than any other plant food. It’s a powerful natural cholesterol controller.

This nutrient rich, multi-purpose flour is why flaxseed meal gets a #4 remix ranking.

Flavor Profile

It has a light, neutral taste.

Best Uses

Works best as an add-in.  Use it to make smoothies, cereals, cookies, pancakes, muffins and cakes.  Use one part of flaxseed flour mixed with three parts of water to replace each egg in a recipe.  Substitute flaxseed flour for fat (oil or butter) in a recipe.  It is a 1-to-3 ratio; for every 1 tablespoon of fat, substitute 3 tablespoons of flaxseed flour.

Flaxseed Meal Buy

When buying flaxseed meal, look for cold milled. Cold milled preserves all the nutrition of its oils.
