View Full Version : Ground Flax

I was at Trader Joes the other day and saw ground flax seeds. I didn't buy a coffee grinder yet, are these packages considered the same or no?
I feel in any recipe where it calls for the ground flax seeds, then I just grab what I need from the bag? :confused:

Hi Kona - It is the same thing. But from what I've read, it is better to grind them fresh yourself. I do - it's easy with a coffee grinder! :D

Better to grind them yourself...the omega-3 oils in flaxseed are perishable and highly sensitive to light and heat. Buy some whole flaxseed, store it in your freezer, and grind it yourself as needed.
