Does flax seed taste good or bad?
Asked by anonymous on Aug 26, 2008 in Nutrition



I want to try flax seed in my diet, but I am wondering about the taste.


Answer

Flax seed has a nutty flavor, something like wheat germ. Most people prefer the milder taste of golden flax seed over the bitter dark flax seed. To release the benefits of flax, use a coffee grinder to grind the seed into a meal. Add the meal to cereals, pancake and muffin batters, breadcrumbs, meatballs, yogurt, cottage cheese, and applesauce. There is no standard for consumption of flax seed, but 1 tablespoon per day is adequate and more than 3 tablespoons is excessive. Read about the benefits of flax seed on About.com.
