Re: Flax seeds

You grind what you will use within ten minutes only

I read the same thing when I bought Chia seeds. The fact that Flax gets rancid after grinding is one of Chia seeds selling points They also have other qualities

Chia Seeds are THE BEST source of
Omega-3 & Omega-6 essential fatty acids!

These seeds are perfect for diabetics &
people watching or trying to lose weight.

Chia Seeds are also very beneficial to the
heart and extremely high in fiber, calcium, high
quality protein, slowly processed carbohydrates
and loaded with vitamins & minerals and antioxidants!

The health benefits of Omega-3
fatty acids are becoming widely known.

What is not as well known is that the
chia seed is THE BEST source of Omega-3.


Chia seed is high in protein
and high in calcium. 5 times the calcium of milk, 631 mg per 100 grams of seed.

Chia seeds are also high in protein,
with 18 grams per 100 grams of seed.

The optimum ratio of Omega-3 to
Omega-6 should be 3:1.
Chia seed provides that ratio.

Chia seed is hydrophilic.
Absorbing up to 14 times
(Mix @ 9-10 times) its weight in water.
This helps extend energy and endurance.

Chia seed is rich in antioxidant oils.
Chia contains chlorogenic acid, and
caffeic acid as well as myricetin,
quercetin, and kaempferol flavonols.
These compounds are both primary and synergistic antioxidants that contribute
to the strong antioxidant activity of chia.

Chia seed is also low in sodium.
Only 19 mg per 100 grams.
