Wie man Sägemehl zu Hause trocknet


Flaxseed meal is a healthy and rich food source that deserves a significant place in our kitchen.

But is it dried correctly after cooking?

In this article, discover practical tips and tricks for home-drying flaxseed meal.

Why Home-Dry?:

Industrial drying uses temperatures up to 140°C, damaging valuable nutrients and affecting taste. Home-drying allows preserving the maximum quality of flaxseed meal.

Methods of Home-Drying:

  1. Spread out milled flaxseed meal in a thin layer on a plate and let it dry until it becomes roundish.
    Quote: "Dry-roasting flaxseed meal in a thin layer allows maximum exposure to air." – Dieter K., Farmer
  2. Pack the dried flaxseed meal into gas-tight plastic bags and store it in the refrigerator, minimizing moisture.

    Research: “A drying loss of 10% to 20% is expected for room drying.”

    – Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food

  1. How long does it take to dry flaxseed meal at home? It usually takes 3-5 days, depending on weather conditions and the amount of flaxseed meal.

  3. How long can dried flaxseed meal be stored? The "3-month rule" doesn’t apply here. Dried flaxseed meal can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a year.


Home-drying flaxseed meal is essential for utilizing the maximum potential of this nutritious and rich food source. It preserves nutrients and natural taste.
