Flax Seed

Can anybody verify for me that ground flax is gluten free. I am pretty sure it is but would like others' experiences with it.

Apparently, ground flax is gluten free. I eat snacks with ground flax quite often because they are safe foods for us celiacs. My dietitian has confirmed this and also the lady who owns the gluten free store where I shop at also confirmed ground flax or foods with flax seed are safe for us. Most importantly, I haven't experienced an allergic reaction after ingesting ground flax or flax seed. I hope this helps!

PERFECT! THANK SO MUCH. I THOUGHT IT WAS, AND READ THAT IT WAS, BUT I WANTED TO KNOW HOW IT AFFECTED OTHER CELIACS. YOU REALLY HELPED OUT! I'M TAKING THE PLUNGE. THE LIGNANS ARE SO GOOD FOR US.

Hi,

I just wanted to add that I use flax seed oil because it is great for the gut. You can add it to salad or smoothies or pretty much anything :)


Australian

Gluten Free Since mid March 2008

As well as gluten I can't eat: cantaloupe, honeydew, dairy and most nuts and seeds. I also seem to have a problem with a lot of fruits and vegetables but only when they are raw.

Just make sure never to cook with flax or flax oil, as the Omega-3s break down very easily. It is always best to store flax (or the oil) in the refrigerator or freezer.

I take flax oil and use flax seeds all the time.

I'm vegetarian so I cant have fish oil, and flax is a great

way to get omega 3's. I know they are not the complete

chain of fatty acids, but I feel like my body converts them

without a problem. I really notice the difference when

I take my oils. My nails start growing twice as fast, literally!

Ive actually documented it, by checking how often I cut

them when Im taking the oil over a month or so vs one

time when I ran out for awhile. Twice as fast. This has to

be good for healing the gut, skin and other parts of the

body as well. I think its a really good thing for newly

discovered celiacs to be taking.

If you get the oil in capsules, just make sure to get a good

gluten free brand, I use Country Life.

:)
