What is the difference between ground flaxseed and whole flaxseed?



Amna's Ground Flaxseed is a wonderful source of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and plant lignans.

The main difference between consuming ground and whole flaxseeds is in their digestion. Whole flaxseeds pass right through your body without being digested. So consuming them whole is as good as not consuming them at all! When it comes to down to it Amna's Ground Flaxseeds are easier for your body to digest, compared to whole flax seeds. Which means your body is actually able to digest the nutrients and benefit from them.

Take home message: Always choose ground flaxseeds over whole flaxseeds.

    I have seen your article but it does answer my question.
    Does whole mean raw and ground mean roasted and grinded ?
