What does flaxseed meal taste like? - Friday, February 06, 2009 6:54 PM
This is silly, but bear* with me.  DH thinks it tastes like something (I won't say what, so as to not influence anyone) and he's been saying it for years. I always thought it tasted like something else, and thought he was just making things up until I put a little too much in my oatmeal and in the middle of eating it I tasted it.  Now, what he thinks it tastes like isn't something gross, I rather enjoy it, but I wouldn't enjoy this flavor on my oatmeal.  Now I know why sometimes he hurries up to eat his oats. lol 

*At first I wrote "bare" but it didn't look right. I wonder if someone would have flagged it for being inappropriate? ;)

I don't think flax meal has much of any taste, but I guess it may be a little bit "fishy" sometimes.......other than that, the only taste is a dull nutty one. Yum, fishy and blah (no wonder we mix it in other foods!)                        mixxie

To me, fresh-ground flax seed is very "fishy" tasting -- gross!  I prefer the commercially packaged, pre-ground flax seed.  It has a very mild, light nutty (non-fishy) taste.

Oops! I'd forgotten I asked this, didn't mean to be a hit and run poster. Yes, it's FISH that DH thinks flax is similar to.  I had never believed him until I tasted it myself. Poor thing! I put it in his oatmeal every morning.  In my defense, I did ask if he wants me to stop but he says it's fine. It's good for you so he'll eat it and the other flavors kind of drown it out. 

When I don't taste the nutty flavor, it makes me feel like I'm eating a tree. I've never eaten bark, but that's how I think it would taste.
