Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Seeds from the flax (aka linseed) plant have been used as food for thousands of years in Asia and Europe. Today flax seeds are prized for their nutty flavor, high level of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and fiber. Because of the omega-3 acids, lignans and soluble fiber content, they are recommended for those concerned about eating heart-healthy food.

STORAGE

Storage:

Store organic flax seeds in the refrigerator for best shelf life, though they can be kept in a cool, dry cupboard.

Shelf Life:

Up to 5 months whole, around a week once ground into flour.

RECIPES & TIPS

Flax seeds can be lightly toasted and added to baked goods (either whole or ground) for texture and flavor.

Combining a tablespoon ground flax with three tablespoons of water creates a substitute binding agent for baking recipes that is equal to a single egg.

To cook flax seeds separately, simmer 1 cup of flax in 2 cups of water for about thirty minutes. That single cup of dry flax seed will expand to 1 ½ cups of cooked flax.
