Flaxseed Milk
August 5, 2013

Sorry folks.  I haven’t written in a while because I was buried under work after my return from vacation.  I’ll start writing regularly again.

During my recent holiday, I came across ‘flax milk’ made from flaxseed.  Over the years during my foreign travels, I had tasted rice milk, peanut milk, soy milk and almond milk.  This was the first time I saw flax milk.  Tasted it and loved it, although no one else in the family thought it was good. 

The highlight of flax milk is its omega 3 content.  A glass of flax milk has 1200 mg of omega 3 fatty acids and much lesser amounts of omega 6 and omega 9.  For those who are lactose-intolerant, this is useful because it contains no lactose.  Needless to say that there’s no cholesterol because it’s a plant product. 

If you’re wondering how to get good amounts of omega 3 in your diet with no access to flax milk, then include flaxseed powder or fish in your meals regularly.  Omega 3 fatty acids are useful for brain function, to possibly reduce the risk of inflammation, heart disease, diabetes and many other modern day health problems.
