Wednesday, June 20, 2012Which is better for you, Brown or Golden Flax Seed?
Nutritionally the brown and golden flax seed are equal. The difference comes in the taste. The brown flax seed has a stronger nuttier taste while the golden flaxseed is milder. If baking with flax seed, the golden keeps the product color close to the original recipe whereas the brown flaxseed will produce a much darker product.

Friday, June 15, 2012Ground flaxseed adds a nutty, whole grain flavor to your baked goods. It can be added to or substituted for flour, oil, or egg in a recipe.
3 tablespoons of ground flax = 3 tablespoons of flour and 1 tablespoon of oil or fat
You may exchange 1/4 - 1/3 of the flour in a recipe with ground flax. Flax has no gluten so if you substitute at a higher rate your baked good will be heavier and denser.
Example: A recipe calls for 3 cups flour and 1/2 cup oil. Replace with 2 cups flour and 1 cup ground flaxseed. Reduce the oil by 1/4 cup. Each recipe responds differently, so play with it until you get it just the way you like it.
