Product Description

100 percent natural flax cold milled ground golden flax seed comes in 40 ounce package. In order for flax to be digested properly it is most effective when ground. Unfortunately, some grinding methods generate heat during the milling process spurring early omega 3 oxidization. This proprietary method gently grinds the seed without significantly raising the temperature therefore preserving the nutrients, flavor and extending the shelf life. Easy, convenient with all the nutrition. The Stober family farm has been in existence for over 100 years near goodrich, North Dakota, where flax seed has been grown for many generations. The John and Stephanie Stober family represent the 5th generation to grow up on the family farm. The Stobers started Flaxusa, Inc. In 2001 to market golden omega flax seed, a hybrid flax seed, that is 100 percent natural.

This is a good product but way overpriced here. Just got the same thing for $9.00 at costco.

Unfortunately, this time Flax USA was rancid.

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.

If you are used to the dark brown, coarse ground flaxseed, do yourself a favor and try this golden flax. Wonderful!!! I got it a week ago and have already tried it in smoothies, bread, muffins and oatmeal. It is very finely ground, which makes it all but disappear. Much better than what I was eating before! And the value was far greater than the grocery store. Highly recommend!

I bought this at Costco years ago and would use it occasionally as a mix in for my yogurt (they were demonstrating that way and were selling it as a fiber supplement).

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.

I got this at Costco the first time I bought it. I used it in my protein shake and it was great. I went back to get more when I ran out, but they didn't have it. I decided to buy it from Amazon. I just received it today, and I was excited. I opened the bag and it didn't smell right. The expiration date is 2014, so it might be how it is stored in their warehouse. I just threw it in the trash cuz I just don't want to deal with returning it. I hope Costco will have it next time I go there.

Good quality, and cold-milled to preserve as much nutrition as possible. Only complaint is that the ziptop stops working once it gets flax in it, but I just put it in a freezer bag and stash it in the freezer.

This is a good product. A bit overpriced at the cost as you really need to shop around. The one thing i do not like is the zipper closire could be built better. too many times, i have thought i had closed it well enough to find it popped open sitting on the shelve. Can't keep "critters" out that way. It seems that the milled flax is gatting caught in the seal and prevents for a proper seal. They need to revamp this seal.

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.

I use this in my morning smoothies for the many health benefits of flax seed. Many people already cover the many benefits of flax seed in their reviews, along w/ the benefits of this product specifically. I agree with them, and also those that say to find this at Costco if you're a member, as you can get it much cheaper there (I paid ~$6 for this same 48oz. bag).

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."
