The Advantage of our Cold-Milling Process.  Flax is digested most effectively when ground.  Some grinding methods generate heat when milled, spurring early Omega-3 oxidation.  Flax USA uses a unique cold-milled process, which gently grinds the seed without significantly raising the temperature. This proprietary method perserves the nutrients, flavor and extends the shelf life to 22 months.
