Certified Organic Milled Flaxseed
Nice taste, mixes great with yogurt or oatmeal (my usual), secure packaging...I hope effective; all that fiber, protein, and lignans! 2tbls=3g Omega 3 and 1g Omega 6. Great deal, a new favorite!

Too old and not vacuum packed
Information that I have read indicates that once flax seed is milled, it goes rancid relatively quickly. Vacuum packing and refrigerating can significantly extend the shelf life, but only out to a few months. This milled flax seed is not vacuum packed and (of course) not refrigerated. Checking the manufacturing date indicated that was already three months old by the time I received it. At least the stuff I bought befiore was vacuum packed. I have since decided to use only whole seeds and mill them myself with a coffee grinder. Still need to be vacuum packed and relatively fresh though.

Good value and good taste
I've heard a lot of good things about the benefits of flax seed so thought I would give this a try. I use it in my protein smoothies and also sprinkle it in with my salads. It has a nice, nutty flavor and definitely helps with digestive regularity. 15 oz doesn't seem like a lot but based on my usage, I can see it will last a long time.

Very good milled flaxseed
If you don't like to use the whole flaxseed, this is good product to use. It is organic and already milled and so, I gave this products as gifts to my family members. It is easy to use to sprinkle on fruits or put in soup to consume. I will highly recommend this product to anyone.

Me and my husband have been using this for years. 3 tablespoons in a glass of OJ each morning. We love that it keeps us regular by adding fibre and I love how soft my skin feels from all the Omega Fatty Acids. Plus Lignans for heart health. Plus Organic! I think this is one of the best things you can do for your health. We miss it when we travel. Thanks Swanson's for another great product.

I recently started adding more Omega 3s to my diet, and was thrilled to find this Swanson's Certified Organic Milled Flaxseed at such a reasonable price! I put it in a handy airtight container and leave it on my kitchen counter. I add a healthy pinch to most all of our main dishes - it blends in very well with most everything. The nutty flavor is terrific on salads. My husband even likes it on his ice cream!
(I did not rate the Effectiveness, as I just started using it.)

Swanson Organic milled Flaxseed
Good to know Swanson carries its own organic milled flaxseed. I trust its quality. Flaxseed provides plant based omega-3, lignans and dietary fiber which has amazing nutritional benefits. It's better to take ground flaxseed instead of whole, the body can better digest it. I sprinkle some in salads, soups, yogurts, and my daily green juice. This makes it easy to add fiber to the meals. Along with a balanced nutrition. It is my sincere wish that everyone is healthy and is making wise food choices. Go for Raw Whole Foods!

Organic flax seed
I like the organic flax seed because it is already broken (seeds are milled). I HATE it when seeds get stuck in between my teeth! I use this in the morning on top of my strawberries, blueberries & raspberries before topping it all off with granola...yummy!

This really tastes good on my salads and I am pleased by this. It has a pleasant flavor and has a great texture. A great big bag for a very small price!

Staple in my diet
High quality, convenient source of lignans and fiber. I add it to smoothies, salads, pasta, and soups. It has a very mild taste and helps thicken liquids. Store it in the freezer to maintain freshness. Swanson's price is right!

Great in cookies
I make a heathly oatmeal cookie and use 3 scoops of this flaxseed in my receipe. Yummy, and no one knows they are eating healthy because it doesn't taste, but just gives more texture and it's good for you!

Good value with one caveat
Consistently good and tasty product that I use every day, usually on cereal but occasionally on oatmeal. It certainly seems to be helping the digestive process and I'm all for increasing the EFA's in my diet.. My one complaint is the packaging. The resealable zip-style bag is not of a great quality. The first one lasted for a few weeks and then quit resealing. The second didn't work from the start. I just place it inside of a standard bag, but it would be nice if I didn't have to. Still, all in all, a good value and I will keep ordering it.

Not only does what we buy for - a great source of fiber - but it actually flavors the items we mix it with and adds to the pleasure of eating them. We put on cereal, in juice and even on peanut butter sandwiches. Amazing how it adds to the taste of ordinary things.

This is a well-priced product. It is very well packaged to stay fresh. I often use it on salads.It is much more convenient to use this than to grind flaxseed,The thick, protective packaging is a big plus. it stays fresh in the refrigerator for a long time.

I have been using this product for several years. 2 TBS every day. It is an excellent way to obtain fiber.

Excellent EFA - Flaxseed
Excellent product at a competitive price - I like using this product in my non-gluten muffins for added nutrition and EFAs.

This product tastes great in smoothies. I've used other milled (I use milled for convenience) flax seeds and they have a tendency to be dryer. This meal is most satisfying.
