I bought this brand before and I am usually very happy with the quality and taste.
When the product arrived (Feb. 2013), the bag looked puffy (with fermented air?). When opened, it smelled off. I tried a little...it was bitter - no hint of the usually nutty flavor.
I checked the expiration date (09/24/2014), so no problem there. Maybe it was stored in a heated warehouse, making it spoil quicker?
I hope Amazon will acquire a "new batch" and keep it in a controlled, cool environment this time.
It would be a great loss to not be able to order this brand anymore.
Then my boyfriend went on the keto diet. And he now uses this stuff like crazy since he can't eat bread. He has recipes for muffins, pizzas, and so on...I have to admit the chocolate muffins really ARE awesome (stevia, cocoa powder, flax, egg, butter to avoid carbs) even though I am not on a low carb diet and have no such restrictions. So it's awesome stuff...very good for you too if you need extra fiber.
To clarify it does have carbs but almost all of it is indigestible fiber so most diets don't count it. (It does also have calories...that's mostly from the flax oil)
However, you MUST buy cold milled if you're planning on storing it long term and not refrigerating. As I said, the first package I had of this lasted years. Cold milled is milled so that the flax doesn't heat up as it's ground. This is important because otherwise the oils break down and it will spoil in a few weeks. Cold milled has a MUCH longer shelf life.
Flax USA tastes great, stays good, and at this size is a good deal.
Not sure if i will buy it again as i have transferred the product to a quart size jar that i can screw on the top. Lose the product info (i went and taped it to the outside.) but I know the seal stays that way.
However, it's worth pointing out that there are different types of Omega-3 (ALA, DHA, and EPA), and the Omega-3 found in flax seed (and other plant sources) is ALA, and not DHA & EPA that is found in marine sources, such as fatty fish, fish oil supplements, and algae.
If you search online for articles comparing ALA with DHA/EPA, you'll find that many studies show that ALA may not have as many -- and even worse, not near as many -- benefits as DHA/EPA. And while our bodies do convert some ALA to DHA/EPA, it is estimated this conversion is very minimal -- between 0.5% and 5%.
Some suggest that DHA is the most beneficial of the Omega-3 fatty acids, and that the benefits of ALA may be trivial. (Some articles say EPA is also important, but I've come across some articles that say it's not as important as DHA.)
There are many articles on the topic if you just search for "ALA DHA EPA benefits". There's an article by Chris Kresser (add his name to the search) that does a really good job of breaking down the differences. According to his article:
"The conversion of plant sources of ALA, such as flax seed oil, to DHA is poor in healthy people and even worse in people deficient in certain nutrients. Vegans and vegetarians are especially prone to be poor converters of ALA to DHA."
