  1. 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.
