Food To Live® Organic Ground Golden Flaxseed is a healthy product that would be a welcome addition to any diet. Our top-quality ground flaxseed is gluten-free and non-GMO, and you can enjoy it in many ways.
Ground flaxseed is mostly used for baking, but you can also add the meal to many other dishes or to homemade cosmetics. They are a rich source of potent antioxidants and will be great for your skin as well as general wellbeing.
Flax seeds are seeds, not grains, so they can be considered Paleo. However, as they are difficult to digest when whole, you should eat them ground into a meal or powder. Use a specialized appliance or your regular coffee grinder to render them into a fine substance. However, you can save yourself the trouble and time by buying Food To Live® Organic Ground Flaxseed in bulk directly from the website.
