Golden Flax Meal Bread

Did you know all about Flax Meal, the uses, and benefits?  This is a very interesting read from the Flax Council of Canada and with a very great Flax Family Favourite cookbook they shared.

Flax Meal

Grinding whole flax seeds breaks the hard outer shell, creating a light and slightly oily powder. Because the seed is already broken, you do not have to worry about chewing as you do with the whole seed. Thus, a flaxseed meal is easily processed by your body, providing lignans and fibre, plus the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic (ALA). You can add flaxseed meal easily to many cooked and uncooked foods, and it can act as a thickener or fat substitute in recipes. Because grinding releases the oil, some care must be taken in the storing and handling of meal. Sold to consumers in kilogram or pound packages, flaxseed meal is only slightly more expensive than whole seeds.


Fresh Food Additive. Flaxseed meal can be sprinkled onto yogurt, hot and cold cereals, hummus, or ice cream. Added to milkshakes, or juices, it makes a flavourful and nutritious snack.

In Cooking. Flaxseed meal adds nutrition to many other recipes that you may prepare fresh, including casseroles, meat dishes, and salads. Flaxseed meal may be added to pasta dishes and meatloaves or used as a breading on meats to be baked.

In Baking. Flaxseed meal is easily added to cookie mixes, bread doughs, and almost any baked good mixture. Flaxseed meal is stable at temperatures used to bake batters and doughs, such as muffins or bread, according to several studies.

As an Egg Replacer – Flaxseed meal is very useful to vegans as a
replacement for eggs in baked goods recipes. You can use a water/flaxseed meal mixture instead of an egg in recipes, such as pancakes, muffins, and cookies.

As a Fat Replacer – Flaxseed meal can replace some, or all, of the fat such as
margarine, shortening, or butter in a recipe. Baked goods with flax as a fat replacer
tend to brown more quickly than regular recipes, so you may have to modify
normal cooking times.
