Those are the same thing. If you have a coffee grinder or Magic Bullet you can use whole flax seeds and grind them up. Grind and mill mean the same thing.

For information: milled or meal vs. whole flax seed

whole flax seed will store better. the whole seed is usually not digestable and irritating to anyone with an inflammed intestine. The seed must be ground, or milled to make the nutrients digestible.

a mortar and pestle, blender, coffee grinder work well for quickly grinding small quantities.

Yes, there is a difference.

Common misconception!

Flaxseed meal, although a term commonly used in reference to ground or milled flaxseed, is a byproduct of oil pressing. Once the oil is "squeezed" from flaxseed, the meal is a lower in omega-3 and therefore a different product than what you are seeking.

If you are looking for a flax "flour," grinding your own whole seeds is a good way. Otherwise, look for products which are "whole-milled" or "full fat." This will ensure you get 100% of the benefits of flax, including the high ALA content.
