Ideas of how to eat Flax

Have you wondered what to do with Golden Flax seed if it is whole seed? Read about How to Grind Flax.

The Omega 3 oil in Flax seed can go rancid if it is ground and then left sitting out of the fridge, because the heating process starts the Omega 3 oils to break down and denature.

You can grind whole flax seed in a coffee grinder in a blender, then is best to eat the ground flax that day or put it in the fridge... which will prevent the Omega 3 oils from denaturing and going rancid.

We now have True Cold Milled Flax that is a special, ONE-OF-A-KIND method invented by the farmer and it NEVER exposes the flax seed to any heat...

... therefore, just like cold-pressed Olive Oil, the flax will not go rancid and you can leave the True Cold Milled Flakes sitting on your shelf easy to use every day!

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."
-- Peter W.

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
