Flaxseed Meal from Peru

by admin on June 12, 2012

Flaxseed flour, or flaxseed meal, is a wonderful ingredient for cooking and baking, as well as a simple way to add nutrients to any snack or dish. Simply mix it into yogurt or fruit salad for added fiber, omega-3s, vitamins, and protein. Also use flax flour in place of some whole wheat or white flour in your baked goods. From smoothies and shakes to bread and pancakes, there is always a way to add healthy fats and fiber to your diet using just a little bit of flaxseed flour. In Peru, flaxseed meal is called Harina de Linaza, or flour of flaxseeds, so the words meal and flour are interchangeable in this case. A good tip is to drink extra water when eating flaxseeds, or add extra water to your baking recipes when using flax flour.
