Frequently Asked Questions
How do you store flaxseed?
Store flaxseed in an airtight container to shield it from moisture, air, and light. Refrigerate or freeze it, as the high oil content makes it prone to spoilage at room temperature. Whole flaxseed lasts longer than ground, so grind it as needed. Avoid exposing it to heat and check for freshness before use. Follow these guidelines to maintain flaxseed's quality and preserve its nutritional benefits.
How do you use flaxseed?
Sprinkle ground flaxseed on oatmeal, yogurt, or smoothies for a nutty, nutritious boost. It can also replace eggs in recipes by mixing 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoon water for each egg.
Is milled/ground flaxseed better than whole flaxseed?
Milled/ground flaxseed is better than whole flaxseed as it enhances nutrient absorption due to its broken shell, making it easier for the body to access its healthy components like omega-3s and fiber.
Is linseed the same as flaxseed?
Yes, linseed and flaxseed are the same. Both terms refer to the seeds of the flax plant (Linum usitatissimum) and can be used interchangeably.
Is flaxseed meal the same as ground flaxseed?
