Mix Flax Seed

My wife and I have been using the flax and are liking it.
We both mix flax seed in water, and is there a way to keep the flax from separating?

Thanks, Todd
P.S. I enjoy the newsletter you sent as well. mix flax seed


I am glad you are enjoying the flax -the health benefits of it make flax an exceptional value. Thank you for the complements on the newsletter.

Flax seed separating in water or any liquid is almost impossible to avoid due to all the fiber in flax. I am sure you have noticed that as flax sits in liquid, that it starts to thicken up.

Here's what we do and what we recommend: stir flax seed while you drink it and drink fairly quickly. More about drinking flax. If you don't drink it quickly enough, it will thicken up and then some people can't stomach the thickened texture of flax.

So, if it get's too thick and you can't eat it that way, we recommend freezing the flax drink (in your case, we would recommend add some juice concentrate- to sweeten it a little- and then freeze it).

This makes a perfect slushy when you are in the mood for a great snack! And you can try other ways to mix flax seed to various other food.

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
