Question(s) about FLAX SEEDS?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to count flax seeds (rather than flax oil)?

 

I grind my own (in my coffee grinder) and need to know how to count them - for points. Also, can they fill an oil or partial oil serving? For example

 

How much is 1 tbsp (measured before ground) or

How much is 1 tbsp (measured AFTER ground)?

 

Or 1 teaspoon if that info is more readily available??? I add to yogurt and shakes to increase Omega 3's in my diet. I also make my own "bars" and would like to figure out the points as they keep well in the fridge and actually SATISFY me. TIA

Whole flax seeds does not have any points as far as I know, because the body doesn't absorb them. Their benefit comes from the fiber! (so that cannot be counted against the oils!)

 

ground, not sure!
