I bought a big bag of grinded up flax seed for cheap. Im not sure of the brand but Bobs Red Mill package is much smaller and almost twice the price. Would there be a big difference between the two?

To the best of my knowledge, flax is flax is flax. There is dark and golden, but I haven't noticed a difference in how they taste, then again I put it in shakes so I doubt I'd notice anyway. You do of course want to be sure that you are getting it gluten free. It is gluten free naturally but could be contaminated by the way it is processed or packaged depending on the company. I've been told that after it's already ground up that it can become rancid if it isn't stored properly so I buy seed and have found that grinding it myself works best for me. I grind it a few tablespoons at a time and store it in the fridge. As long as what you bought is gluten free and you use it up before it smells funny I don't see any difference between it and other stuff.
