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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Organic Flax Seed is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Debris galore This brand had more debris in it (stems, weed seeds etc.) than any other brand I have ever used. I wouldn't buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality These flax seeds are just that. Good, organic, clean. What more can I say? The whole seeds will keep a long time, while the powder will turn pretty quickly. Grind them in a coffee grinder or bullet each time you want to add to something. Easier to digest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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?
Date published: 2013-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
