Organic Life’s Flaxseed Powder has a mild, natural nutty flavour and is rich in Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. Our flaxseed powder is free of sugars, soy, dairy, fillers, flavours, and preservatives and is cold milled to preserve the freshness and nutrition of its precious oils.
Flax seeds are an excellent source of fibre, protein, lignans and fatty acids that are vital to good health. They are low in saturated fat and contain no cholesterol.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are good fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon (+/- 10g) of Organic Life’s flaxseed powder contains about 3,3 grams of Omega-3s. Flaxseed contains 75 to 80 times more lignans, which possess antioxidant qualities, than other plant foods and is high in dietary fibre containing both soluble and insoluble fibre.
Flaxseed powder can provide a nutritional punch to baked goods.
Add flaxseed powder to bread, pancakes, muffins, bars, cookies, cereals, & smoothies for a wholesome nutritional boost and a natural nutty flavour.
Tip: Replace cooking oil in recipes with milled flaxseed powder.
Substitute flaxseed at a 3:1 ratio for best results. Use flaxseed powder as an egg replacer in recipes for muffins, cakes, cookies, and pancakes. Use one tablespoon of flaxseed powder and 3 tablespoons of liquid to replace each egg called for in the recipe. Reduce the flour in a recipe by up to 25 percent and replace it with milled flaxseed powder.
