Frontier Flax Seeds have a nutty, slightly green-grassy flavor and a high omega-3 fatty acids content. While whole flaxseeds feature a soft crunch, the nutrients in ground seeds are more easily absorbed.
Use in baked goods, smoothies, granola bars and pasta dishes.
These seeds have a high oil content, and although the oil is relatively stable while the seed is intact, refrigeration is recommended to slow the oxidation process and prolong the life of the seed. Raw flax (also known as linseed) seeds contain a cyanogenic glycoside which is toxic if consumed in large quantities (20-30 tablespoons per day).
