I've been using golden flax meal for over a year to stretch the Carbquik baking mix without adding carbs. It has a light flavor, sort of nutty, and gives the Carbquik mix a whole wheat texture. If you like white bread this won't work, but if you like extra texture and flavor in your baked goods this is good stuff. I mix a pound of flax meal to a pound of Carbquik. It changes the amount of mix but not the carb count so you get twice as much volume to your muffin for the same carb count. This really helps on those "hungry" mornings when I want some extra food. I don't feel bad having an extra muffin for breakfast. I'm still only getting 3 carbs for a huge muffin and lots of good food value from the flax meal.
With other flax meals or seeds, I have perceived a "fishy" taste that, naturally, I did not like. I was really happy to find that this product is very mild tasting, without that "fishy" note. It's finely ground and I like it very much for baking.
This is an excellent product. The texture and tastes are non-intrusive. The product blends well in baking and provides a fantastic source of fiber. I am a low carber and it really helps diversify my menus. I can have induction friendly 'treats' without stalling.
This flax meal is very light and mild tasting. I love the texture it adds to muffins and pancakes. I also use it in the "Power Pudding" I make for one of my clients for the extra fiber and health benefits of flax. It has really helped me be able to stay on my low-carb eating plan, both reducing hunger and keeping me "regular".
