    Moderate quality flax seed. Need to be checked for hulls and husks, as some were present in my order. Also, these flax seeds are brown flax seeds, not golden flax as illustrated in the listing. Price is good for the product quality.

    Like a previous reviewer, I also grind these in my coffee bean grinder.

    It’s fast and easy to grind the whole bag a scoop full at a time.

    Super price on a great product – Thanks!

    This is a good price, very good. I do think you have to grind them before you use them or there is no benefit to taking them. They need to be milled. A coffee grinder does a good job. I put a couple of cups of flax seed in the Granola that I make to lower my Cholesterol and it really adds to the taste and texture.. I store these in my freezer and they last a long time.
