Organic and NON-GMO, great taste
 August 29, 2014
"According to product description, and the package, this product IS non-GMO (another review indicated it was not). It seems that Spectrum has covered all the bases to make this a high quality product, plus I love the taste. I keep it in frig and grind it in a coffee grinder--easy!-- each use. I grind 2 tablespoons of the seeds and dump the whole amount into a large smoothie I make every morning. Looked like a lot the first time I did it but it tastes really good and I like that I can incorporate it into something I already make."

Very Good Product!

"I buy these regularly and grind them up fresh in a small electric chopper to put in my protein shakes. Flax Seed is best when freshly ground up and put in recipes or drinks. Organic high fiber, omega 3 fatty acids and low in fats."
