Re: Flax - oil v's ground solid


I've learned that flax seed oil is extremely sensitive to light and oxygen, so IMO you would have to use an oil that comes in a dark bottle and has some sort of device that lets the oil out but no air in. Otherwise it will turn bitter in a few days.
The same with unstabilized ground flax seed. That's why I grind it everyday in a coffee grinder. :)

I know the emergency diet requires flax and vitamin E. Can anyone tell me if flax oil is just as good as ground flax (£8.80 for 1 litre from Global Herbs) - as you all know I am very concerned about Toffee getting colic again so want to reduce the chance of that happening as much as possible.
