You Can See Our Quality!

Dear Customers: Be aware that flaxseed meal has a robust, nutty flavor and tastes really great! Two tablespoons added to your cold or hot cereal, pancakes and waffles or baked into your breads, muffins and quick breads brings to you amazing nutrition. Also, please consider that several studies show flaxseed meal may be one of the most powerful natural cholesterol controllers yet discovered. These studies grabbed my attention.

Bob's Red Mill products labeled Gluten Free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to determine if a product is gluten free.

Millers of Natural Food!

What's inside each flaxseed and found in flaxseed meal could be better health, spelled F-L-A-X:

F is for fiber. It's amazing how much fiber a little flax contains. Just two tablespoons of flaxseed meal delivers 4 grams of fiber, as much fiber as 1-1/2 cups of cooked oatmeal! Studies prove that when flaxseed meal is added to the diet, harmful LDL cholesterol drops, while good HDL cholesterol stays put. Regularity improves, also.

L is for Lignans. Here's where the flaxseed story gets major points. Flaxseed contains high levels of lignans, a natural antioxidant and a member of the family of plant estrogens (Phytoestrogens). The lignans in flaxseed can maintain breast and colon health by binding circulation estrogens and other 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.

A is for Alpha-linolenic Acid. Modern diets-even healthy ones- are routinely deficient in omega-3s. Flaxseed is a megasource for the plant version of Omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid. The oil in flaxseed is about 50 % alpha-linolenic acid. Canola and walnut oils, the next higher sources, have about 10 %. But most foods have far less. One serving of flaxseed meal contains 2400 milligrams of omega-3.

X is for excellent choice. Should you consider adding flaxseed meal to your diet? "Absolutely." say many doctors and nutritionists.

Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods low in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.

Dear Friends,

For many years we have been proudly stating that using our products will "delight your family with stone ground goodness." Naturally, it pleases us that the same whole grain products we stone grind on cool running French buhr millstones are today making health news all over the world. When you choose several daily servings of whole grain foods, you are providing the foundation for a healthy diet by eating foods that are from the base of the recommended food pyramid. At Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods, we mill the widest possible diversity of whole grain foods.

Suggested Use

Baking Tips for Flaxseed Meal

* Ground flaxseed can be substituted for shortening or cooking oil at a ratio of 3 to 1 in baked goods. For example, 1-1/2 cups of flaxseed meal can replace 1/2 cup butter, margarine or cooking oil in a recipe.

* Baked goods substituting flaxseed meal for cooking oil tend to brown more rapidly.

Other Ingredients
