Grind Flax to Avoid the Seed In, Seed Out Experience!
Grind flax seed for the optimal benefits! Flax seed can be eaten whole, but the seeds will pass through the body without any impact.
Have you wondered what to do with whole flax seed?
In order to take advantage of the powerhouse of nutrition in this little seed, you gotta grind it!
Whole Flax seed: How To Grind whole flax:
Step 1 - Find a small coffee grinder or a blender that is strong enough (we use a vita mix) to grind the flax.
Step 2 - Measure out how much flax you want. Our flax is about 1 Tbs seed = 1.5 Tbs ground flax, because of the high Omega 3 oil content.
Step 3 - Grind the flax for 20 seconds to 1 minute depending on how finely ground you want your flax (finer flax will thicken up more in liquid, coarser flax will give your foods/juice more texture)
Step 4 - Put in a container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks -this is great for days when you are in a hurry. (Always do the taste test on flax -if it tastes bad or smells bad, don't eat it!).
It is important to grind flax seed, otherwise, it will just pass through the body undigested and your body won't get all the good benefits of the Omega 3 oil, Lignans, and fiber!
Grinding your own is the most economical way to eat flax seed!
The Omega 3 oil in Flax seed can go rancid if it is ground in a coffee grinder or in any way heated, so if you grind your own, then is best to eat the ground flax that day or put it in the fridge!
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 cold milled flax will not go rancid and you can leave cold milled flax, 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!" -K.A.
"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."

"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
