Carrington Farms, Organic Milled Flax Seeds, 14 oz (396 g)2 Reviews
Expiration Date: Oct 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Healthy Benefits: Organic Milled flax seed is an excellent source of Omega 2 Essential Fatty Acids, "good fats", which have been known to maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. In addition, flax seed is high in SDG lignans. These act as both phytoestrogens and antioxidants and may have a balancing effect on hormones. While flax seed is high in fiber it also helps to hydrate hair, skin and nails.
Serving Suggestions: Carrington Farms Organic sliced flax seed has a delicious flavor. Sprinkle it over cereals, shakes, yogurt, salad, oatmeal, fruits, vegetables, casseroles and baked goods. Reseal tightly and refrigerate after opening. Best if used within 3-4 months after opening.

iHerb Customer Reviews
It does have that distinctive flax seed flour taste but I find it as good as low-carb bread that is made of many dubious ingredients and sold at quite high prices, it is organic, easy to make(simply mix with egg, cinnamon powder and baking soda and bake) and so much cheaper. You might like it better eaten as sandwiches or with any spread that would "hide" that flax flavor. The best thing is that you know what healthy ingredients you eat!
Iherb required me to review this item (I reviewed other items that I have used) but I haven't even opened the package yet....
