NOW Real Food Organic Flax Seed Meal has a mild, nutty flavor similar to wheat germ, and it's often added to cereals, pancakes, muffins, breads, meatloaf, meatballs, and even yogurt. Flax is a natural plant source of healthy fatty acids and a good source of fiber.
Our proprietary cold milling and sifting process does not grind, crush, or liberate the oil, unlike typical flax processing, giving our product a longer shelf life.
Fresher ingredients simply taste better, which is why this product is packaged using NOW Fresh Fill Technology to maximize flavor and freshness.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.
Due to its fiber content, Flax should be consumed with plenty of water.

This is very good for adding to baking products or smoothies, but it does absorb water and thicken a lot, so be aware. I added some to muffins and had to add a lot of water to get it back to workable consistency, which is fine, but be aware. While mixing batter, give it a minute to absorb the water and bulk up, then add more water if you have to. It's also very good in smoothies, but again it will make them very thick. Small enough grind to drink easily, and grinding the seeds probably helps you to digest them and get the most benefit from the nutrients within them, instead of just passing them through.
I mix this into my oatmeal with some honey for a satisfying breakfast. The omega-3 benefits of flax are more accessible to the body when taken in meal form rather than seed form. I store this product in the freezer, having read that the oils in flaxseed can go rancid.
Good for smoothies and 'Flax Eggs'

A nice addition to my morning smoothie. I also use this as an egg substitute and it does a decent job. Good value product compared to what is available in my country.

Would recommend. Very good for porridge, combined with oats and chia seeds.
Serves its purpose

Apart from the malfunction ziploc bag, which i think is caused by the texture and the fineness of the flax seed meal, the flax seed meal serves its purpose. I add it to my smoothies.
