  • Flax Milk?

    Anyone heard of this? Tastes great just curious if it's beneficial. ImageUploadedByMarks Daily Apple Forum1388556697.768954.jpg

    Anything flax (seed) is full of omega 6 so not very beneficial.

        No. Flax (aka linseed) is full of omega 3, but the form that is poorly used by animals. So relatively nutritionally poor and toxic if heated so oxidised

        There is no reason to drink it
        Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

        Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

          I had it once, pre-MDA. Back then I did all my shopping at Wal-Mart and I saw it on the shelf next to the soy milk (oh noes). Thought to give it a try. It did taste good, but I evidently got the last one ever, as I never found it again.

          Wouldn't drink it these days, though!

              It has almost as much Omega 6 as Canola oil. I agree..no reason to drink it.

                  While we're on the subject of seed milk, I saw the other day that my local Big Lots carries a rice "beverage" that includes Canola (or similar cooking oil). Weird.

                    Gross. Don't try to make plant products into fake animal products. Eat actual food.

                      Unsweetened coconut milk, go for that. Or unsweetened Hempseed milk. If you must have milk at all, that isn't unsweetened grass-fed/finished milk!
