Since 1999, North American Nutrition has focused on delivering premium quality flaxseed and superior customer service.
The reason our product has a long shelf life is the selection of only high grade seed batches for processing. Intensive cleaning and sizing of the seeds and a special cold milling process that retains oil content in the seed.
Note: By removing the poor quality seeds before milling/grinding, the deterioration process you commonly read about in milled (ground) flaxseed is not allowed to begin.
You’ve got dozens of choices when choosing where to buy ground flaxseed, so let us tell you why you should buy right here on goldenflax.com.
We are a family business from Utah, and we get our flax from a family farm located in northern Minnesota. A clean, environmentally perfect place to grow flax seeds. We take such pride and care in growing, harvesting, grinding and shipping our ground flaxseed that we offer a 100% money-backguarantee if you don’t love it.
Use ground flaxseed as a binder – Swap out equal amounts of ground flaxseed meal instead of breadcrumbs (up to 1/2 cup) in meatball and meatloaf recipes.
Use as a thickener – Add 3 – 4 teaspoons of ground flaxseed to your favorite smoothie. You won’t feel any grittiness and it will help to thicken your drink as well.
Use as a layer – Replace granola with ground flaxseed, using it as a layer when making yogurt parfaits. In a tall glass, add a few spoonfuls of Greek yogurt, sprinkle with a teaspoon of flaxseed meal, topping with fruit and repeat two more times.
Use as a coating – Mix flaxseed with your favorites spices to coat chicken, pork or fish fillets. Dip protein first in an egg wash (beaten egg with a splash of milk or buttermilk) and then in flaxseed coating. Bake on a rack on top of a baking sheet for crispier results.
Use as a topping – Mix 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and use to top mac & cheese before baking instead of breadcrumbs – it’s amazing!
Incorporate it in your favorite breakfast item – Sprinkle flaxseed meal over cereal, oatmeal or yogurt to get a early morning dose of omegas and lignans with little effort.
Diversify your saled – Who needs croutons (and the extra carbs!) when you can top your salad with flaxseed? This is a great way to combine flaxseed with healthy foods like kale or spinach. Try toasting them lightly for an extra boost of flavor.
Boost your soups – In the same vein as the salad idea above, a little garnish of flaxseed can provide a nutritious contrast of texture and nutty flavor. If you want to go a little heartier, considering stirring roughly a half to a full cup of flaxseed into stews or casseroles.
Get creative with your spreads – If you’re planning a picnic, add a tablespoon of flaxseed to your sandwich spreads or dips, like hummus or guacamole. It adds a tasty twist to standard picnic or party eats.
Substitute for eggs – Ideal for vegans: Flaxseed mixed with water can serve as an egg substitute in certain baking recipes.
