Flax seeds are thought to have originated in the ancient Middle East during biblical times. They are an important source of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-3, plus Magnesium, Zinc and dietary fiber. Flax oil from flax seeds is the richest known source of linolenic acid. It contains protein, mucilage, phytosterols and lignans, which are naturally included at 100 times the level of the next best source, wheat bran.

Sand in mine too I read other review saying sand in this flax seed. It is good to know someone else has experience it. So I am very disappointed with this NOW product. March 31, 2014
Flax Seed I love the freshness, fast shipping, and the good amount for the price. I will reorder! Thank you March 16, 2014
Sand? I usually consume two tablespoons of milled flaxseed on a daily basis. I also chew two tablespoons of the whole flaxseeds just for the extra fiber throughout each day. I started off using the NOW brand of both because they are cheap and they are organic. I also use other brands. But with the last two bags of this whole NOW flaxseed, I have managed to chew into some pieces of sand. With the first bag, I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt with the last second bag that also had some sand in it, NOW may want to look into their quality control. Thankfully I haven't had this issue with the milled flaxseed yet. I haven't dealt with this with other brands of whole flaxseeds so I may stop buying the NOW brand. Will continue to buy other NOW products as I love this brand but this sand is just a no no. December 11, 2013
rwhill This is a very good product ,Helps to keep me regular, and i like that it is certified organic which means NON GMO which is very important to me December 5, 2013
very good product I have been using this product for about a year now and it is a very good product. December 4, 2013
Convenience of ordering & price This is good, but it might be better if vacuum packed. Wasn't as fresh as some I've purchased, but the price is good. November 19, 2013
Love this stuff! Great product! I like to grind it up and put it in my oatmeal. So healthy! October 14, 2013
Good product, great price! Grind these up every morning to throw on my homemade yogurt. Good fiber, good fat, price can't be beat and a fresh product. July 26, 2013
Great Deal Great product for great price! July 12, 2013
Quality & value This is an excellent organic flaxseed priced well in comparison to non-organic varieties. June 30, 2013
first time buyer first time im using whole flax, but for the price, you cant beat it, i cant get this at a local store for this price. so how can you go wrong? June 10, 2013
Great product at a good value I use flax seed in all of my fruit/vegetable drinks, the almonds make me choke on the pulverized nut and I like the Goji berries, but they are a little more expensive. I bought flax seed at the store and it was very reasonable also, but was not organic. May 28, 2013
nice buy I bought this to make gluten free protein bars with, so far I'm very pleased with this item. May 17, 2013
Superior quality deal! I purchased these and not only were they delivered quickly, but the price was fantastic for an organic item. We use these for smoothies but also snacking. Oddly enough-- we also used them to make eye covers as the filling inside. Rice can burn and smell but these hold heat and smell good after many uses. March 4, 2013
Organic Flax Seed I grind this flax seed every morning to put on my yogurt/blueberry breakfast. I believe it is very beneficial for my health, providing fiber and omega 3s. I wouldn't be without it. February 18, 2013
Good Value I grind up the flax seeds to put into smoothies and oatmeal. The quality of NOW foods is something that I trust. July 28, 2012
Fresh, Good Quality I use this when I bake cookies and other bread products to add nutrients and fiber - works really well with oatmeal cookies. Everything I bake is gluten-free and this flax seed works well in my recipes. Good quality, good taste and great price. February 23, 2011
yummy Toast 'em up, toss 'em in, Iove these December 1, 2010
great product The flax seed has a fresh and healthy look. I grind it for use and it has a great aroma and wonderful taste. I have bought other flax seed and it had stems and refuse in it but this product is very clean. January 7, 2010
Great price I use these ground each day to my hot cereal to help with my flax seed needs. December 20, 2009
great value This product adds fiber and has helped me maintain my intake. Really with omega-3 and other good things, this is a great product. Plus I get to grind my own. Will continue to purchase. August 23, 2009
Economical Source of Omega-3's Flaxseeds provide an excellent source of Omega-3 essentail fatty acids as well as fiber. I grind them in small batches in my blender and sprinkle them on yogurt and cereal. 2-3 tablespoons a day is all you need to get your daily dose of Omega-3's. August 18, 2009
Good For Chickens I give this to my chickens to have Omega's in my eggs. They love it! July 30, 2009
Ground flax seed Changed My Life It has a light nutty tast. I take 2 Tblsp's in a glass of milk or juice just before bed. Ground flax seed changed my life! I am now regular for the first time in my life. I also have read that flax seed helps to detox you.The omega fatty acids are a big bonus!!! Try it you will not regret it. June 10, 2009
Good for you and really easy to incorporate! I loved this product!I add it to my salads, cereals and yogurt!Definitely like it a lot! February 21, 2009
