Question, should flax seeds be stored in freezer or refrigerator if not using all in a small amount of time ? how long is shelf life after opening container.
Thank you for inquiring. Best to store them in freezer in airtight container. They should be consumed quickly if not stored in a freezer. If stored in a freezer, can last up to a year but quality should be checked periodically and flax can take on freezer odor.

So your flax seed is raw? and when I purchased this product at the supermarket it was on the shelf. Should I not purchase this product if it is not refrigerated?
Hi Roy! our flax seed is cold milled but not toasted. Ground flax is more digestible than whole flax seed (seed in, seed out) but after milling the alpha-linolenic acid that is the omega-3 fatty acid abundant in flax seeds and provides it’s health-protective properties is more susceptible to denaturing or spoiling. You can cook with ground flax that has been stored in cool conditions because the foods are eaten shortly after cooking but once heated the clock begins to tick. Hope that helps.
Question: Why your nutrition facts data differ from other organic flax seed from a different brand? e.g. Mostly I have seen only 1800 mg of Omega 3 per serving, 2 or 3 gram of protein and 4 grams of fiber.
These are organic Flax seeds so there should not be that much difference across brands?
the nutritional content on basic foods will vary, depending on the region in which they are grown, the type of seed planted, moisture, soil conditions, and other factors. Our nutritional content is based on a lab analysis of our products, and not on a comparison with other products in the marketplace.
I hope this clears up some of the confusion on that issue.

Is it safe to bake flaxseeds whole after soaking. I heard it could cause release of free radicals.
Hi Cleta – We have heard conflicting reports as well but found this great, well documented article on the subject. It specifically covers how to bake with them. http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=dailytip&dbid=18
I bought this today but went to use it and there was no seal under the lid. Does this product not come sealed?
Hi Rachel! It should have a seal! Please take it back and exchange it for one with a seal. Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience!
How many teaspoons can I pit in a 16oz smoothie?
Can I use these whole flax seeds as is or should I have bought ground flax seeds?
Hi Monica! I actually use whole flax in my smoothies all the time! I just toss a small handful in and it tastes great!
