    faq

    What is the difference between gold and brown flax?


    The main difference comes down to taste, as their nutritional profiles are very similar. Golden flax seed has a fresher and nuttier flavor, while brown flax seed can be bitter.


    Why eat flax seeds?


    Flax seeds have three powerful health benefits including omega fatty acids, fiber and lignans. These heart healthy and body-cleansing properties can help promote normal cholesterol levels and steady digestion.



    Best way to consume these seeds?


    Flax seeds are a low-glycemic carbohydrate, slowing the absorption of sugar in the intestinal tract. Therefore, it is important to chew or grind the flaxseeds in order to digest and absorb their nutritional contents. Many costumers use a coffee grinder in order to create what is known as flax meal or ground flax seeds. Others soak the seeds, starting the sprouting process, and then dehydrate them, as we do our crackers, for a crunchy and more digestible snack.


    What is flax meal?


    Flax meal is ground up flax seeds. We do not sell meal as it goes rancid fast. We suggest buying flaxseeds and grinding them as needed. To keep fresh, refrigerate flax meal and use within a few days.



    How to make a flax egg?


    For one egg, take one tablespoon ground flax seeds to two tablespoons water. Let sit for 3-5 minutes so that gel can form before mixing into rest of recipe.
