eSutras Organics #goldenflaxseed #Review
Product Name: Golden Flax Seed
From: eSutras Organics
Type of Product: organic whole flax seed
Price (as of date of review): $5 for one 8 oz jar
Where To Purchase: http://www.esutras.com/444-flax-seeds-gold.html
First Impression: I was surprised at how shiny the flax seeds look. They look and feel smooth, and they have very little smell, but it is almost like a light grain scent. The taste is like that of a raw nut (if you've ever tasted raw peanuts, these taste almost exactly the same). Shipping was quick, but I was disappointed to have only received one jar. I did receive this product free to review, but was promised two jars initially. I didn't need two, but just a note to check over your order upon receipt to make sure you got everything you ordered.
My Thoughts: I found the seeds a little difficult to grind up in a small blender (we used a Ninja), but maybe in an actual coffee grinder like recommended on the package they would grind better. I was able to add them into berry smoothies and salads for me and my family, but without being able to get them into a fine powder, I couldn't add them into regular dinners and such without them adding a gritty texture. I do recommend these seeds, and I personally use them daily in my morning smoothie, but I also recommend purchasing a coffee grinder as well to get more use of them and to really experience their health benefits.
