Tastes great with porridge, cereal and yoghurt, or try sprinkling on fruit and salad.
Our Flaxseed is cold milled to protect all the nutritional goodness and Omega oils contained in the seed. Flaxseed, also known as Linseed, is one of nature's richest sources of the essential fatty acid Omega 3 (ALA).
Our body does not naturally produce Omega 3, therefore we must get this valuable fatty acid from our food, and Linwoods Flaxseed provides an easy, convenient and tasty source with 5.8g of Omega 3 per 30g. Our healthy super foods are cold milled to aid quick and easy absorption into the body, so you can feel the immediate nutritional benefit in your diet, naturally.

Convenient alternative if you don't have a way of grinding your own. A great way to boost a variety of foods such as smoothies, soups, yoghurt and bakes. I've even been known to eat spoonfuls on its own! Has a mild slight nutty taste. If you are baking and looking for a vegan egg alternative then I have had success mixing 1 tbsp of this with 3 tbsp of water (to substitute 1 egg). Simply mix and leave to stand for a bit until it thickens.
Used to mill my own flaxseeds before I found these beauties. Am so glad I found these!
Great for low carb porridge
I mix with water and dash of soya cream and pop in microwave. 3 tbsp makes a lovely amount. Excellent product. Once opened I keep in fridge in plastic container it stays fresher.
As a vegan this is the best for omega 3, iron, protein. It can be used in so many ways. I love a tablespoon on my porridge, on yogurts, smoothies. It is a fantastic egg replacement in cakes, pancakes and more. 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed to 3 tablespoons of hot water stirred, rested for a few mins to cool then add to dry ingredients. I defy anyone not to make perfect cakes with this. My cakes, muffins etc are perfect every time. I highly recommend.
I add this to bread crumbs for coating chicken etc. All members of the family say this has improved the dish (and they still don't know what it is). Another great way to sneak in some good fats.
Easy way to make breakfast more nutriticious
I have a spoonful of this every day as it's so easy to add to breakfast and really good for you. It doesn't actually taste of anything when added to others food so doesn't overpower whatever you're eating. I add it to porridge, in muesli or granola, in smoothies and in yogurt - it's quite flavourless so you won't even notice it's there but it's a great way to add protein and omega 3 to your diet. The bag lasts a long time as well.
