Ground flax seed is ideal for a nutritionally wise addition to breads and all kinds of baked good products. Flax has been around as a food supplement for quite some time, often added to cereals high in various grains and even snacks. The nutritional benefits of whole or ground flax seed are found in its fiber properties, the lignans it contains, its protein and its fatty acids. You can add this reddish brown nutritional supplement either whole or as ground flax seed. Be aware that flax seed meal can be better absorbed by the body than whole flax.

Ground flax seed, because its properties are highly oil based, can even replace shortening or cooking oil in a food recipe. If, for example, you were supposed to add one-third cup of cooking oil to a recipe you would instead add 1 cup of ground flax seed. In other words the ratio is 1:3. Keep in mind, however, that if you are baking something in which you have substituted ground flax seed for shortening or cooking oil, you baked good is going to brown more quickly than usual.
You don't want to store ground flax seed for very long at room temperature. The better way to do that is to store it as whole flax seed or refridgerate flax seed meal. This you can do for up to one year.
