The nutty flavor of flaxseeds combined with their large content of omega-3 fatty acids makes them a popular addition to diets. While whole flaxseeds feature a soft crunch, the nutrients in ground seeds are more easily absorbed.
These seeds have a high oil content, and although the oil is relatively stable while the seed is intact, refrigeration is recommended to slow the oxidation process and prolong the life of the seed. Raw flax (also known as linseed) seeds contain a cyanogenic glycoside which is toxic if consumed in large quantities (20-30 tablespoons per day). The cyanogenic glycosides are volatile and will readily dissipate when flax is cooked. Flavor - bland, slightly green-grassy taste. Non-irradiated.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I love that iherb is carrying Frontier products. This is a good quality flax seed at a great price.
Good quality flax

Great for baking, mixing in granola and bars. Arrived fresh, with good taste and texture. Flax can go off quite quickly, so I keep this in the freezer.

Get some flax, people! This is good for you and great in oatmeal, breads, granola bars, and in health shakes you make in your blender.

Really great tasting flax seeds, with the perfect texture. Use them in bread, trail mixes and rolls - and they taste no less than amazing.
