Very good quality product I have been using it for over a year now and I am happy with its quality.
Mix it in with my Swanson greens and spinach powder in the early morning, mixes well, there is next to none stuck to the side of the glass after consuming.

I have always liked Barleans products and had purchased the Forti flax in the dark container with a screw-on top (not a plastic bag!) in the health food store for years until the store started carrying the same item (with less flax in it!) in plastic bags and I found the packaging inconvenient. I was glad to have found the original container (still 1lb!) on Swanson website.

Love It!
I love this stuff! I try to take it once or twice daily. I can definitely tell an overall difference in how I feel. I have recommended this product to many people. I order 5 or 6 at a time and usually end up giving a couple away. Y'all have the best price too!
