Amazon prime is selling organic flax seeds at eight a pound. This is half the cost but you get more so unless you will be consuming it immediately, insure to double bag and keep it away from light, moisture and air for freshness since it contains oil.
OILS: Rancid is a process of mother nature and has nothing to do with organic, conventional, GMO or the type of seed since rancid has to do with oil. It is not important if the oil or the tablet is even frozen at the time of production till you consume since any seed, and I mean any type of seed regardless of the brand will go rancid once ground and cracked open since the shell, the protection is removed which will allow air and moisture access the oil of the seed much quicker than when the seed is in a complete un-hulled form. The best example of rancidity is brown rice. Place some brown rice in freezer and you will notice in few months it will not even cook since the oils have gone rancid even if it was kept in a sealed container in the freezer regardless. Chia is the only seed that does not need to be ground in order for human body to digest and get the nutrients and can be stored for longer time than any other seed without going rancid. Sesame seed, flax seed, etc. are so dense that will pass through human body when not ground making it absolutely worthless since human body can not digest it in its natural form.
FIBER: Fiber is essential for body since fiber absorbs the unwanted liquid in the gut and body has to defecate that blown up fiber which in return lowers cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, etc. and brings comfort and efficiency to human body unlike fat which stays in human body unless needed for energy. Flax is high in fiber.Read more ›
All of Bob's Red Mill products are of high quality and very fresh. An excellent company to buy organic products from!
Flaxseed is a wonder for digestion and generally good for you. I keep mine in the fridge and grind up a batch each week (also kept in the fridge). This reduces the chance of the oils in the flaxseed going "off." (I have had some which did, and if the flax tastes funny and not gently nutty, then get rid of it.) Don't buy the pre-ground stuff because it can go bad much more quickly.
Bob's Flaxseed is now something I buy on a regular basis.
With that said, make sure and check your local supermarket price for this item first. I have become so accustomed to getting deals on Amazon that sometimes I don't even compare costs. Winds up that the regular price for one package of this item at my local supermarket is $2.99. Could have gotten a bag for free and had money left over had I just checked while I was doing my regular shopping.
Like Costco, Amazon doesn't always wind up saving you money.
I keep some ground in the fridge alongside the whole seed... dump it on any kind of cereal for a fiber/omega infusion.
I've added it to so many recipes, from banana bread to mac n'cheese, you'd think I was nuts!
As it turns out, I find the addition to be mild/complementary enough that you can get away adding flax to so many things.
Salad or cereal are obvious choices but it is a pleasant mellow addition to pasta sauces, mac n'cheese, cookie recipes, you name it.
And it works!
My buddy didn't believe me until he added it to his morning oats... he had been having some intestinal issues, let's just say, and now he's as regular as an atomic clock haha.
Sort of showing off, I took a handful of seed and popped 'em in my mouth, and started munching away. I thought I might regret it but they were great! Easily satisfy any craving for a nutty snack and there's something satisfying about grinding the seed in your mouth... I know, I can be extreme. But these are just so PLEASANT.
And you get a whole lot for cheap... try Prime and Subscribe and Save (you can always cancel) and you get a lot for a little.
I was going to give some away as gifts but they kind of make you want to horde them.
Easiest fiber infusion ever.
