Excellent for this price point, used in protein shakes alongside Psyllium Husks to make a healthy and fibrous meal replacement. Excellent delivery!
As with nuts and seeds you really are getting a lot of health benefits, and a lovely nutty taste ... As with Nuts and seeds too, you need to eat moderate amounts. This product is very versatile and I use it in Porridge and also mixed in with greek yoghurt and fruit for brekkie ...
Linwood Organic Flax was recommended to me and I find it very palatable and useful. The nutty taste goes well with cereals and it is fine enough to mix with casseroles and soups. I am finding the benefits after one packet. Buy with confidence.
I assume that anyone reading this already knows what organic flaxseed is, so I'll just comment on this particular Linwoods brand. It comes very well packaged in a nice pouch, that you can re-seal if you wish. It's a good idea to do that or store the ground flaxseed in an airtight container, as oxidation will eventually make it unsuitable for eating (if it tastes bitter, time to throw away). Sunlight is bad for this stuff too, so the pouch is good in that regard too. 425g is quite a large quantity, so unless you're using it daily you may find you can't use it all. In which case you should probably buy whole flax seeds and grind them yourself. This Linwoods Organic Flax has quite a mild, nutty taste. It's certainly not an overpowering flavour by any means, so you can add it to most foods without spoiling the taste and perhaps enhancing it depending on your point of view. I've never had a problem myself, but I have read in many places that if you are not used to eating this, start with small quantities as the high fibre content can have quite a powerful laxative effect. All in all, this is a very good product that I would recommend.
I have eaten this for about a year now and can confirm that this is a nutrient-rich food, containing Omega 3,lignans, iron, zinc, calcium and fibre. It is gluten,dairy and yeast-free. It tastes good and can be mixed with just about anything ~ I take it with porridge or cereal, usually. If taking two dessert spoons daily,the 425g pack lasts about 5 to 6 weeks. I used to buy it at the Health Store, but my local supermarket now stocks it at £4.40, so shop around for a good price. Try it, but be warned, you might get hooked!
I really love this stuff. I sprinkle it on my morning cereal, in yoghurt, in stews and soups, in fact it will go in almost anything. It tastes good too and is high in antioxydants. Good in the fight against cancer and lowering of cholesterol. If you want to help you body heal or keep it in top condition then buy and eat Flax Seeds. I prefer it milled because it goes into anything and mixes well. When mixed with cereal and milk it might look a bit sloppy but it tastes good. Don't be put off. Buy it!!
