According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, flax oil may lower low-density lipoproteins when eaten regularly, lowering blood pressure. However, whole flax seed is difficult for the body to digest; that’s why we grind golden flax seed to release the nutrients from the seeds. Other benefits of flax and its oil stem from the seeds’ soluble fiber and lignans, which may help regulate blood sugar.Our freshly milled flaxseed meal is made from high-quality golden flax seed, ground at cool temperatures to preserve the oil. The flavor of this golden flax meal is incredible: once you start using it, you’ll add ground flax seed to almost everything!Add flaxseed meal to your favorite recipes for bread, pancakes, muffins, and cookies: reduce the flour by up to 25 percent and replace it with milled flaxseed. You can also replace oil or shortening in a recipe with ground flaxseed meal: for best results, substitute flax at a 3:1 ratio. Or, use ground flaxseed meal as an egg replacer in baked goods: add 2 tablespoons ground flax to 3 tablespoons water and use the flax gel to replace one egg.
