Made from finely milled flax seeds (also known as linseeds), this nourishing flax meal can be used to add a tasty nutritional boost to almost any meal. Perfect for mixing into porridge, yoghurt, smoothies and soups, Health Connection Flax Powder is loaded with omegas and has a pleasantly mild nutty flavour. Flax meal is a great source of fibre and protein; in fact it’s one of the few plant-based “complete proteins” out there, making it a great choice for vegans and vegetarians.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.

What nutritional goodness does flax meal offer you?

  • Rich in fibre, promotes healthy digestion & keeps you regular
  • A complete protein source, containing all essential amino acids
  • Source of omega-3 fatty acid; a great anti-inflammatory that promotes heart health & brain health
  • A good source of lignans, plant oestrogens which help with hormonal balance

Adding more flax to your diet helps to keep cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose levels in check.

I use this in my porridge. Definitely helps with my constipation, but it does leave me bloated. I prefer to use it alternative days.

Good quality flaxseed power. Great for egg-free baking.

Excellent cruelty-free egg alternative. Binds pancake batter nicely.

Makes a good low carb wrap, though in my opinion the taste is not as good as regular ones.
15/12/2019, By Mike
I do not use a microwave for cooking anything.
Fine for hot water bottles.
I do not think that this product should be overheated I prefer to use it with preservative free natural yogurt as a thickener
Research suggests that you can reduce nutrients by overheating
15/12/2019, By Mike
I use this to thicken, is a healthy alternative
29/11/2019, By Bee
Personally I find the taste to be like that of card board, though it is great for holding things together as an egg alternative.
25/10/2019, By Adene
Great that I can get my Flaxseed boost in this powder form and the Health Connection Brand is good value for money.
21/10/2019, By Tim

My Skoonma het baie gesukkel met opelyf en vandat sy die Flaxseed poeier elke oggend oor haar pap gooi het sy geen probleem nie, sy sukkel as jare om 'n produk te kry wat gesond is en werk. Dankie vir die produk

Great quality, can add it to everything for a nutritious boost.
02/04/2019, By Ash
Chuck it in some oats or a smoothie and it's a great way to get the good stuff into your body.
29/03/2019, By laryssa
Great stuff
28/02/2019, By LW
Not a huge fan of the taste of flax seeds but this works great in smoothies or mixed into oats. Great value for money.
03/02/2019, By Stephnie
I use this to thicken smoothies, or to have as a porridge on its own. Mild flavour.
22/01/2019, By Nass
Affordable and great digestive aid.
26/10/2018, By Mel
Love this. I have a very sensitive tummy, and that makes it hard to get all the good stuff when you can't actually eat any of it. This is a great way to keep my gut healthy, and it tastes lovely.
24/08/2018, By Malcolm
Fantastic with coconut flour for no carb bread
17/08/2018, By Jenna
Loving this - just started using it, so still have to experience the benefits but know that it is pure goodness = I add it to my bulletproof coffee - am going to try it with betonite clay as another reviewer does for a detox drink -
05/07/2018, By Aislinn
I've only been using it for two weeks and not every day. I also haven't experimented much with the powder - I've used it in oats and cereal.

But it's an easy way to get some of the good stuff my body needs.
13/02/2018, By Malik
Blends perfectly with my morning oats...
09/02/2018, By Carina
Don't really like the taste of flaxseeds. But I just add this powder to smoothies or pancakes and it doesn't affect the taste at all. Very happy with the product.
19/10/2017, By Sharon
I enjoyed changing over to the powder from the seeds, as it doesn't get stuck in my teeth. I add it to my oats at breakfast everyday to keep me regular...this has been a huge plus during my pregnancy to avoid constipation as I suffer from wheat/gluten intolerance.
16/09/2017, By Pj
This my 'go to' when my digestive system is acting up, it really helps regulate things. I take it with bentonite clay as a detox drink
30/06/2017, By Aus Dee Dee
I love this mega food, I drink it every day before work.
30/05/2017, By Annie
Super healthy... I love adding this to my smoothies!!!
23/05/2017, By Fatima
Flaxseed powder is great for making "flax eggs" in vegan baking recipes. I also use it in smoothies.
29/10/2015, By Annelize
Great product at a good price. Great source of protein and some good fats, a must to any breakfast porridge.
