Flax seed and Flax oil


 

One of those "Just for your information" posts.

Horses on pasture eat about 17 grams/day omega 3 (1,000 lb horse)

Flax seed (ground) 3 oz (weight) = 84 grams= 180 mls = .72 cups = 19.2 grams omega 3 = 1,000 lb horse

Flax oil  1.3 oz (weight) = 36 grams = 38.5 mls = 2.6 tbspns = 19.2 grams omega 3 = 1,000 lb horse

Bunch more math below, just for the sake of completeness:

Flax oil      = 533 mg omega 3/ gram;  1 tablespoon flax oil    = 14 grams= 7196 mg omega 3;  1/2 tablespoon flax oil  = 7 grams = 3598 mg omega 3

Flax seed = 228 mg omega 3/ gram;  1 tablespoon flaxseed = 7  grams  = 1597 mg omega 3;  1 tablespoon flax seed = 7 grams =1597 mg omega 3

Flax oil      = 479.7 mg omega 3/ ml;   15 mls flax oil = 7196 mg omega 3;  

Flax seed = 106.5 mg omega 3/ ml;    15 mls flax seed = 1597 mg omega 3;


Flax seed / 2.25 = flax oil (weight)

Flax oil X 2.25 = flax seed (weight)

Flax seed / 4.5 = flax oil (volume)

Flax oil X 4.5 = flax seed (volume)



Flax seed = 2.14 mls/gram= .143 tbspns/gram= 1 tablespn/7 grams

Flax oil = 1.07 mls/gram = .0714 tbspn/ gram = 1 tabspn/ 14 grams
