EFA has a pleasant, nutty flavor that can be easily incorporated in foods. It can be sprinkled on cereal, or mixed in applesauce, mashed potatoes, pudding or any other viscous food. Ice cream or sherbet are other good vehicles. For baking purposes, EFA can be substituted for the fat used in baking at a ratio of 3 to 1. For example, 1 1/2 cups can replace 1/2 cup of butter, margarine, shortening or cooking oil in a traditional recipe. Because goods made with flaxseed brown rapidly, cooking times should be followe
As a rule of thumb, adults should supplement with at least 10 grams (two heaping teaspoons) up to 20 grams daily of EFA and children should use 5 grams (one heaping teasoon) to 10 grams daily. That dosage translates into each teaspoon of EFA supplying 2 grams of fatty acids. Of those two grams, about 1.2 grams will be omega-3. Also, the dosage does not have to be the same each day. A little more or less on a given day is not critical, nor is there any danger of overdose.
