Use daily and constipation will no longer be a problem.
Too many grainy impurities
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.
Small and dry flax seeds!
I’ve ordered these before and they were a good quality but apparently Red Mill’s quality control is deficient to let these pass through.
Excellent deal, fresh and convenient
Bob’s Red Mill Organic flax seeds are really fresh, they do not smell rancid (like I happened sometimes with those bought from the local store), they come in 4 packages so you can easily freeze 3 of them. And are organic, which is important to me.
Also, they are convenient as a price. I did the math and they cost 2.81$/lb (2.38$/lb if you use the “subscribe and save”, like I did). This is a great price for organic flax seeds. If you buy them from the official Bob’s Red Mill website, they cost a lot more, it is about 25$ for these 3 packages.
To grind them, I recommend the Cuisinart SG-10 Electric Spice-and-Nut Grinder. That’s what I use and works great.
I have been consuming seeds for years. Unfortunately in the beginning not too many people knew (infact they still don’t) that seeds like flax seed and sesame seed have no nutritional value unless;
1. Seeds are fresh, not old and rancid,
2. Grinded in a coffee grinder,
3. Consumed within few days,
4. Kept in the freezer,
5. Kept in a dark place not exposed to light,
6. Oils and supplements are worthless since it goes rancid.
So for few years although I consumed those seeds, I got no nutritional value out of flax seed oil which was very expensive to purchase till I learned the above pointers. I can not grind sesame seed in the grinder since it is so oily and ruins the grinder. Flax seed is the best balancer. Regardless of that, I have to consume both seeds due to the high mineral content which is a necessity for my healthy diet. For years I have been doing blood test and my omega-3 has been much higher than the highest level required for my age, year after year. Although I consume fish, it is the flax seed that pushes my omega-3 higher.
1. Sesame seed for calcium, protein, phytosterols and host of other minerals and vitamins
2. Flax seed for omega-3 fatty acids with no cholesterol, to increase good cholesterol HDL
3. Cocoa for antioxidants instead of eating chocolate with sugar and unnecessary additional additives
4. Protein isolate for a complete amino acid chain without the fat, cholesterol and extra calories
I mix it all with organic soy milk and consume it before my workouts on daily basis to feel full and have all the necessary vitamins and minerals without much spike in my glucose, fat or calories.
Great product, great price
smaller packages would be nice – if possible
Good Price, Good Food
FLAX…. good for what ails ya!

Great source of Omega-3’s
Great for your health
With the fiber and various omega oils contained in flaxseed you can’t go wrong!
Delicious-Nutritious & Affordable SuperFood – High in Omega 3
It is important to use organic raw flaxseed…don’t pollute your body woth toxins or pesticides in order to add something healthy. To use flaxseed you can add whole or grind to add to bread…provides a very nice flavor that does not overwhelm. It’s one of the standard items we use in our whole grain seed/nut breakfast bread. You can also add to rice/other grains for a pilaf, toss in with salad or even soup, mix into hot breakfast cereal like fresh buckwheat or kamut.
Super source of omega 3 plus other nutrients. Very affordable, stores well. Tastes great. Check out my other reviews for many more superfoods, kitchen accessories etc to help you eat great without the high cost!

Bob’ Red Mill flaxseed
Check your prices!!!
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.
Tastes like flaxseed to me.
Product arrived in factory packaged box of 4.
I just eat a few handfuls of these a day. You should chew them up completely in order to access all the nutritiion. Whole seeds are not broken down in your digestion system. Others may think otherwise but once chewed I liken them to the taste of pecans. They feel like they would be good for you when you eat them too.
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.
good product…. terrible packaging
very high quality
I like the nutty flavor
Flaxseed are easy to spill from the plastic bag they arrive in, so when I am ready to use a new bag I pour the bag into a plastic container designed for cereal, this allows me to pour the seeds out of the container’s spout without spilling the seeds on the counter. To make it easier to move the content of the bag into the container, I cut a small hole in the bag and use a funnel to direct the seeds into the container.
My favorite way to eat flaxseed is in a smoothie. I blend 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed, 1 cup juice (I vary which juice I use for variety), 1 banana, 1 Tbsp. avocado, and ice.
In case you find it useful here is a taste comparison of other seeds I use in my diet.
Nutty-flavored seeds that provide the most nutrition when ground.
Similar in taste to sunflower seeds and pine nuts.
Soft seeds with a sweet, earthy flavor when toasted.
The flaky center of wheat kernels. Very light earthy flavor.
