While flaxseed oil – the extracted, isolated oil of the flaxseed – should NEVER be heated due to its delicate structure and propensity to oxidize, studies show that when whole or ground flaxseeds are used in baking there is neither oxidative damage to the oils nor degradation of the nutrients. - See - 9/20/16
I made this tonight and was hugely disappointed. The fumes were noxious and the bread itself was more of a spongy egg consistency and tasted horrible. I immediately spit it out. Upon further research I've discovered that baking with flaxseed meal makes the flaxseed go rancid and isn't recommended. - 6/8/16
