The Wisdom Of The Ages
Flax has been prized since ancient times. Its Latin name, Linum usitatissimum, means "most useful." Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, prescribed flax to patients with intestinal issues. King Charlemagne was so convinced of its benefits that he passed laws requiring his subjects to consume flaxseeds.
The Science Of Today
Today, the nutritional data backs up the wisdom of the ancients. There is general agreement among experts of all sorts that folks should consume more omega-3 fatty acids to promote good health. Three tablespoons of Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed offers 5790 mg of omega-3s. What's more, each serving provides 8 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. It's no wonder so many nutritionists, not to mention Bob himself, urge you to add flaxseed to your daily diet.
Straight From The Source
Sure, there are omega-3s and fiber in pill and powder form. You can also inhale oxygen from a tank, but wouldn't you rather breathe fresh air from the great outdoors? We just believe that eating the whole seed, as nature intended, serves your body and soul best.
Nowadays, so many of the products you find in grocery stores are processed to the point that they can barely be considered food at all. Sometimes you can't even pronounce half of the things in the ingredients list! At Bob's Red Mill, we don't do it that way. When it comes to grains, beans and seeds, we think nature got it right. In their original state, these wholesome foods provide a magnificent combination of nutrients that are essential to health.
We honor this innate perfection by keeping our foods simple, and our flaxseeds are an excellent example of that practice. They are simply seeds from the flax plant, with nothing added and nothing removed. Offering 8 grams of fiber per serving and boasting a wonderfully nutty flavor, these precious seeds are as nourishing as they are delicious.
Pure and simple. Those are the perfect words to describe Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed. Take a look at the ingredients - or rather, the ingredient. That's right. There's only one: whole flaxseed. It doesn't get much simpler than that. And we think that's just how it should be.
To your good health,
To get the most nutrition from your flaxseeds, grind them into meal. It's easy to do. Simply put a few tablespoons of flaxseeds into a small electric grinder. Grind for about 30 seconds, or until the seeds become a fine meal. Add to smoothies, breads, crackers, cookies, hot cereal, yogurt, salads and pilafs for a powerful nutritional boost.

Bob's Whole Flaxseeds
Great product, reasonable price

I was happy to find this flax seed at iHerb, as it is a product I regularly use in bread making. I sometimes have difficulty finding it locally, and when I do it is priced much higher than the price I paid at iHerb. I also was given free shipping due to the size of my order - a great transaction all around for me!
Not organic, still yummy

Not organic (didn't realise) so won't buy again. Still yummy though.
Didn't like it

I switched from flax seed to chia seed. Flax seed can create some sort of cyanide poisoning in your body so you shouldn't ear more than a tablespoon per day.
My favorite thing!!

Started using flaxseeds, whole but grind in small coffee grinder (10. WM). Got me through a bout with cancer, cured - all natural.
Flaxseed for Horses
Posted by 5245687126356940096 on Nov 25, 2013
I actually purchased this for my horse that suffered from COPD/allergy type symptoms for years (coughing/wheezing). I have had her on a regimen of herbs and Spirulina and added the flaxseed. I keep it in the freezer and grind it in small batches and refrigerate. She loves it and it has really helped her coat shine, her hooves strengthen, and her allergies are much improved! I have added it to my salads as well, but prefer fish oil and Evening Primrose oil for my essential fatty acids.
