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.

These Frontier Organic Whole Flax Seeds are fresh and delicious. I open them as soon as they arrive, put them in a mason jar and keep them in my freezer. When preparing them, I place a couple tablespoons of seeds in a small seed grinder, grind for about 20 seconds and then top my morning oatmeal with then. This is a great way to get your Omega 3's and a healthy dose of high quality oil into your diet. These seeds are wonderful and tasty.
Good but ....

The one comes in a bit of residue with the flax seed so a bit of clearing need to be done otherwise the quality is good
perfect for my gluten-free muffins!
