Substitution Tips for Flax Seed

Substituting Flour
– Omega Golden Flaxseed was developed for use in the baking industry because of its nutrient value and good taste. Flaxseed flour enhances the flavor of whole wheat flour based recipes and Cold Milled Whole Flax Seed flour is stabilized to retain a high nutrient content with 50% flax oil (omega 3 & 6 oils), high Protein, and high Fiber and guaranteed 20 month self life without refrigeration! Cooking with Flax Seed

A general rule of subsitition for flour is to reduce the flour by 1/2 to 3/4 cup and add the equivalent in flax flour. The fiber content of flaxseed flour will require some additional liquid when converting traditional recipes, as baked goods will brown more quickly. For more great recipe information please consult a Flaxseed Cookbook.

Substituting Fat: – 3 Tablespoons ground Omega Golden Flax Seed = 1 Tablespoon Margarine, butter or cooking oil. Substitute for all or some of the fat depending on the recipe.To substitute for all of the fat with flax seed, increase liquid by 75% as ground flax seed absorbs liquid. Baked goods brown more quickly.

Substituting Eggs: – 1 Tablespoon of ground Omega Golden Flax Seed plus 3 tablespoons water for each egg.
Substitute a 1:3 ratio of ground flaxseed and water mixture for each egg in recipes for pancakes, muffins and cookies. Allow to sit for several minutes before adding to your recipe.
