Flaxseed meal has a wonderful nutty flavor and adds the nutritional benefits of omega-3, lignans and fiber to your baking and cooking. Gluten free organic flaxseed meal makes an excellent egg substitute – use one tablespoon of flaxseed meal and three tablespoons of liquid to replace each egg in baking or pancakes. You can replace up to 25 percent of flour in a recipe and replace it with flaxseed meal. Used as a natural aid in controlling cholesterol, flaxseed contains up to 80 times more lignans than other plant foods. Lignans are phytonutrients high in antioxidants and fiber and credited with a number of health benefits.
