Organic Golden Flax Seed Meal – A nutritious addition to any meal!
NOW Real Food® Organic Golden Flax Seed Meal has a mild, nutty flavor, and it’s often added to cereals, pancakes, muffins, breads, meatloaf, meatballs, and even yogurt. Golden flax is typically lighter in color and more flavorful than dark flax. Flax is abundant in essential fatty acids and is a good source of fiber.
Flaxseed Nutrition Facts
A single serving of flaxseed contains:
Flaxseed is a good plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids. This means that it has anti-inflammatory features, which is beneficial if you are struggling with conditions like Crohn’s disease, joint pain, and asthma. The high fiber content in flaxseed can also help with digestive issues like constipation and diarrhea. Fiber is important for gut health because it helps add bulk to stools and keeps you regular.
Another benefit of flaxseed is that it is high in lignans. Lignans are a type of phytonutrient that act as weak estrogens in the body. Studies have shown that lignans can reduce the risk of certain hormone-related cancers like breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
You can buy flaxseed meal at most health food stores or online retailers. When shopping for flaxseed meal, make sure to buy organic and non-GMO whenever possible. Store flaxseed meal in a cool, dry place like your pantry or cupboard. It will last for several months when stored properly.
How to Use Flaxseed Meal
There are endless ways to incorporate flaxseed into your diet. You can add it to smoothies or oatmeal for an extra nutritional boost in the morning. For a healthy snack, mix flaxseed with yogurt or use it as a topping on salad. You can also use flaxseed meal as a replacement for eggs in recipes – just mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg called for in the recipe. And since flaxseed contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, it’s a great way to add extra fiber to baked goods without affecting the taste or texture. Just substitute 1/4 cup (30 grams) of flour with 1/4 cup (30 grams) of flaxseed meal when making muffins, quick breads, or even pizza dough!
As you can see, there are many reasons why you should consider adding organic golden flax seed meal to your diet! Not only does it have a mild flavor that goes well with many different foods, but it’s also packed with nutrients like essential fatty acids, fiber, and lignans. So next time you’re at the store, be sure to pick up some organic golden flax seed meal and experiment with all the different ways you can use it! Your body will thank you!
