Flaxseed flour is made by milling the defatted cake produced in the manufacture of cold-pressed flax seed oil. The milled flour is sorted to ensure that only the finest flaxeed flour is packaged. Flaxseed flour is rich in fibre and protein, and is a great source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids. It has become popular as a wheat flour substitute in gluten free and low GI baking. It can also be used as an egg substitute as a binding agent in baking and cooking.
