View Full Version : Physillium sub for flax?

Would this work? I have found that I react to flax, and cannot access Chia seeds at the moment. Is Physillium raw? I know it will expand in water like flax. I am wanting to make crackers/bread type things.

I assume you want something that makes the other ingredients stick together? I noticed the other day when I soaked buckwheat groats that the water turns into a sticky gel. I think that it would probably work to either use soaked buckwheat groats in your recipe, or grind the dry groats and use the flour. I use them in most of my breads.

Only problem with that is I react to buckwheat as well. :rolleyes:
Most grains are not good for me, unfortunately. Any other thoughts?

Well, I suppose you could try the psyllium husks. I know they gel in water as well. Just make a small batch to test it, and let us know!:D

Okay, sure hope they turn out! Nuts and seeds are crazy expensive here! Will let you know how they turn out.
