Bob's Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal has a robust, nutty flavor and tastes great! Two tablespoons added to your cold or hot cereal, pancakes and waffles or baked into your breads, muffins and quick breads brings you the powerful nutritional benefits of Omega-3, lignans and dietary fiber.
It's amazing how much fiber a little flaxseed contains. Just two tablespoons of flaxseed meal delivers 4 grams of fiber, as much fiber as 1 1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal. Studies suggest that when flaxseed meal is added to the diet, harmful LDL cholesterol drops, while good HDL cholesterol stays put. Good for regularity as well.
L is for Lignans. Here's where the flaxseed story gets major points. Flaxseed contains high levels of natural antioxidants called lignans. The lignans in flaxseed can bind with circulating substances that might promote unchecked cell growth. Many plant foods have some lignans, but flaxseed has at least 75 times more than any other. To get the lignans that are in just two tablespoons of flaxseed meal, you'd need to eat about 30 cups of fresh broccoli.
Modern diets - even healthy ones - are routinely deficient in Omega-3's. Flaxseed is a mega-source for the plant version of Omega-3 called alpha-linoleic acid. The oil in flaxseed is about 50% alpha-linoleic acid. Canola and walnut oils, the next highest sources, have about 10%. But most foods have far less. One serving of flaxseed meal contains 2400 mg of omega-3.

We represent one of the most unusual segments of American history. Bob's Red Mill is dedicated to the manufacturing of natural foods in the natural way. With all the sophisticated knowledge of recent times, no machinery has yet been developed that grinds grains into flour quite as well as our flint-hard quartz millstones quarried in France and used by discriminating millers since early Roman times. We stone grind all common and most uncommon grains into flours and meals on our over one-hundred-year-old mills.
