I mix a tbsp with my oatmeal for breakfast and another tbsp with my beans at dinner time. Used in whole form they aid digestion and can help prevent constipation. Eat too much and they can also block you for a while. The trues Omega-3 benefit comes from the ground form because our digestive systems don't break down the shell very well. Easily accomplished with pestle and mortar or a coffee grinder.
I contacted the manufacturer and found the following of interest:
" here are a few other big chains in addition to Dollar Tree that carry it: 99 Cents Only, Marcs, Ollies, Big Lots - hopefully one of these stores are near you. ?
Works for me ;)
YMMV

These are wonderful seeds and are great for baking or adding to smoothies! However, you can find a bag this size at 99 Cent Stores as well as Dollar Tree.

Ok, these taste great. My wife and mother-in-law eat them all the time. They both were on my case to eat these for a healthy balance diet. I researched and found a lot of good things about them. I don't have a problem going to the potty but thought Omega-3 was needed in my diet. One day we went to the 99 cent local store and we found this brand there. I figure can't go wrong 99 cents, Omega-3 and if I don't like them my wife and her mother will definitely eat them. I purchased them took them home and ate for the first time in a plain yogurt. After about 2 to 3 days My intestine were going wild. Violently moving about and cramping really bad. I did not connect the dot "Duh" at that time. After 5 days it dawn on me this was the only new thing in my diet. I stopped eating them and after a few days the horrible craps went away. I was not allowed to be deterred, :(. So I took a much smaller amount after a few days same result. At that time I was ready to call it quits, again I was coerced one more try! ;) This time I took about half a tea spoon every other day in varied ways. It took a bit longer but my intestine protested. That was it for me, I began to buy Shelled Walnuts for the Omega-3 and my intestines are much happier. Oh! As for why not just eat fish? I used to but Gout pay me a nasty visit. All other people who I know personally do not have this issue at all! So please don't be deterred by my terrible experience. I gave it 5 stars because there really is nothing wrong with the product itself. It seems to me that my body simply will not tolerate these. My advise, take it slow, specially if you have never eaten them before. PS I have eaten these in every imaginable way and dose, well my wife's imagination that is.

Great quality flax seed but my complaint is that the bag is not resealable. Once opened I had to clip the opening and then just to be safe, I put it in a Ziploc bag. If the bag would seal this would be a 5 for sure.

Flax seed is good for you and this is a good quality...just needs work on the packaging.

Be careful if you use a coffee grinder to ground it into a powder for better digestion. Use less in powder form. It is very potent and can cause very bad stomache upset if you have too much. I mix a very small amount in my oatmeal.
Arrived well packaged.
Quality of seed was good.
Highly recommended.

I use these for all my baking needs! They are definitely worth the price I paid for them and would tell everyone to buy them.

Not much to say about this product. I blend it in smoothies to add a little extra texture and some extra nutrients. These seeds are exactly what I expected.

I bought this to make some homemade hair twisting gel and it worked very nicely. Thanks for a great product.

I bought these flax seeds to make hair gel, and they work great for that purpose. Worth buying is you can't get it in the store.
