Hi Richard,
What a fun question! It brings me back to my days of living in Papua New Guinea where my Aussie friends used grams for cooking!

So, this is going to be different for Whole Flaxseed and Ground Flax (our Flakes of Gold-always be sure you buy cold milled ground flax or grind your own).

How many grams of flaxseed in a tablespoon?

For our Flakes –cold milled ground flax, 1 Tablespoon = 6.6grams.

For our whole flaxseed, 1 Tablespoon of seed = 14.02

-which, makes sense, because when you grind our flax, it almost doubles in size because of the high content Omega 3 oil in each seed.

For Children and those with digestive sensitivities, they should start off with less.

For more information for children and those with IBS, Crohns, etc, you can read more about how much Flaxseed here.

How many grams of ground flax seed should you take a day?

The amount of flaxseed per day that we recommend is 2-4 Tablespoons grams that is approximately 15-30 grams per day. You can eat your desired amount of flax up to 50 gm/day.

Always listen to your body. You can eat more or less depending on how much other fiber you are also eating. We all need 25-35g of fiber a day and many of us are only eating 11g a day!

Flax has so many health benefits and is easy to add to anything!

"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."

"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
