Question What is LSA

I have a recipe for banana and Lime cake that calls for 1 tablespoon of LSA.
What is it? what does it do? and where can I get it?
the big question is Do I really need it?

is this a published recipe? or a hand copied or family recipe. my guess is that it is "short hand" for something like salt substistute or citrus flavoring. Maybe a baking powder agent. ???

It is a recipe published in an e-book by www.vegansecrets.com I presume that the recipe was contributed by an over-seas contributor.

Well, it is a cake for vegans so it is a butter or milk substitue, probably soy...but as to what, I dunno. Check out a health food site or do a google search. see what turns up.

LSA is a vegan dietary supplement/cereal which consists of ground Linseeds, Sunflower seeds and Almonds.

You can find it in natural food stores.

LSA Mix
  • 3 parts Linseed (flaxseed)
  • 2 parts sunflower seeds
  • 1 part almonds
Combine and grind up in a coffee grinder into a fine powder. Keep in a tightly sealed container in the fridge to maintain freshness. It can also be purchased already ground from most health food stores, in 1 pound or 2 pound bags, or as a bulk food item.

OR

It's a naturally occurring psychedelic drug equivalent to the better known, but chemically produced, drug called LSD.

Thanks so much.
I didn't think of a google search but am not sure that would help anyway.
Now I know what it is and how to put it together I will have to make the cake soon.
Again Thanks for all your help.

Interesting mix. Every recipe for LSA mix that I've seen or used always call for equal parts Linseed, sunflower and almonds.

Since flaxseed is such a powerful laxative I would be reluctant to make it 50% of the mix.

Linseed Sunflower Almond From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. LSA, a Linseed (Flaxseed), Sunflower and Almond mix, is used to provide essential fatty acids, soluble fibre and other nutrients for a Liver Cleansing Diet made famous by Dr Sandra Cabot. LSA is prepared by grinding up 3 parts Linseed, 2 parts Sunflower seed and one part Almond.
I don't make this stuff up, ya know?
