you said a “serving” of milled flaxseed = Two tablespoons.
i tried my best, but only able to get MELROSE’s “organic flax meal”, i know you’ll say:“that means you’re not doing the V-Diet!”
but i just hope you can tell me is that equal to the milled flaxseed? should i just take 2 tablespoons of these “flax meal” as “a serving of milled flaxseed”?
thanks and sorry i can’t get the milled flaxseed…[/quote]
The “meal” vs. “milled” thing is kinda confusing, I admit. Ideally, what you’re looking for is a rougher, milled or ground up product. “Meal” is sometimes a rougher grind, but sometimes it’s more of a powdery, flour-like grind, which might not be as palatable in shakes. I prefer the courser grind, “cold-milled.” Problem is, flax seed makers sometimes use the words “milled” and “meal” interchangeably.
You can also buy whole flax seeds and grind them yourself if you want. A dedicated coffee bean grinder is good for this, but I honestly just buy them pre-milled myself, then keep them in the fridge after opening.
A typical serving of milled flax is two tablespoons.
If you can’t find them in a health food store, drug store, or pharmacy/vitamin section of Wal-Mart, check the baking aisle of grocery stores. Sometimes it’s right there with the flour and baking mixes. That’s where I get mine. These are usually in a box and not a bag, but they’re very inexpensive.
