Is Flaxseed Keto-Friendly?

Flaxseed is a super seed for anyone on the keto diet. It’s high in fiber, high in fat, and low in net carbs.
Compared to other keto flours, it has 10 times fewer carbs than almond flour with only 1.9 grams of carbs per 100 grams
Because Flaxseed Meal is so high in fiber, it’s highly liquid absorbent.
So it can’t quite be used just like any other flour.

How To Make Flaxseed Meal

Making Flaxseed meal is very easy.

It only takes one ingredient, one kitchen tool, and 5 minutes.

Ingredients

  • Flaxseeds – you only need flaxseed to make flaxseed meal. You can choose any kind of seed: golden or brown.

Tips

Making this recipe is very simple, it only consists in blending or processing the flaxseeds.
But there are a few things you can do to make your life easier.

  1. Dry Weather: if you make your flaxseed meal when the moisture is high, the flour will be sticky and mold can quickly develop in storage. Making it in dry conditions ensures a longer shelf life.
  2. Keep it away from sunlight: sunlight with its UV rays can damage any food, but particularly high-fat food like flaxseed meal. So keep it in a dark place.
