Ground Flax Cold Milled can mean the difference in eating rancid, spoiling flax versus flax that has nutrients! COLD MILLED FLAX will not taste or smell bad!
Flax seeds need to be ground in order to get the benefits, and for a long time there was no way to grind the flax except through methods that would heat the seed up when it was being ground.
Flax seed is high in Omega 3 oil, which is very fragile (because it is highly unsaturated) and this oil will start to denature and break down when it is exposed to heat.
Flax exposed to heat will start to go rancid and lose the health benefits.
If you ever smell or taste flax that smells like turpentine or just doesn't taste good, then it is likely rancid.

Flax should have a light nutty taste that you barley notice.
You can compare the fragile oils of flax to the fragile olive oil- you don't want them exposed to heat. This is the reason that you should also buy cold-pressed olive oil!
We used to tell everyone to grind their own flax seed and eat it that day or put it in the fridge; this was because the only kind of ground flax we used to have had been heated when it was ground (milled). Even grinding it in a coffee grinder or blender can heat the seed enough to start breaking down the fragile oils.
However, this is NOT the case now that we have Cold Milled Flax seed!
A method invented by the farmer that never exposes the flax seed to any heat. This proprietary milling process does not crush, grind or separate the Flax oil from the seed -basically the seed is the same stuff just in different forms! This makes True Cold Milled Flax unique and the best quality for you!
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! Just keep it out of direct sunlight and heat sources.
Cold Milled Flax is the easiest and most convenient way to eat flax seed. True Cold Milled Flakes o' Gold makes it a perfect way to add MANY health benefits to your busy days and stay on track for healthy eating, disease prevention and great health maintenance!
