By the way, this is a great deal since it went Front Page at this same price back in January: https://slickdeals.net/e/9649464-prime-members-4-pk-16oz-bob-s-red-mill-organic-golden-flaxseed-meal-10-80?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

Decent price, but at the local store I get organic flax meal for $0.09/oz and this is $0.17/oz.

There is also a 4 pack of 32oz on there for $0.15/oz so actually a better deal.

Some suggest that flax goes rancid and oxidizes rapidly after being ground and that it's best to buy it whole then grind it before use. I don't have a strong opinion, but that seems to be the prevailing wisdom. Just saying.

Walmart is also a better deal with $4.81 for a single 32oz pack. We find Walmart prices on some Bob's items are frequently less than even Amazon sale prices. Of course all the normal considerations between Walmart and Amazon apply.

I use these to fortify my scratch pancakes. They have a very long shelf-life, surprisingly so given their high fat content (maybe how they are packaged or the type of fat?) Kids like it, though I suspect the chocolate chips make it moot. laugh out loud Supposedly you can use this as a substitute for eggs, so it might work for a homemade camping pancake mix at a fraction of the cost.

Anyone know how this compares to ground flaxseed in terms of nutrition and texture? I use ground flaxseed in my protein shakes but the shell bits settle at the bottom resulting in an unpleasant rush of flaxseed sheels that aren't fully ground at the end of the shake.

You are kind of right with the eggs thing, but it is certain things. You can make a vegan chocolate mousse out of flax seed, but probably not the same with milled flax seed. It takes a lot of steps and time, but it looks great. I can try to find a link if that is something you are interested in. I am a former vegan/vegetarian and think it looks great. I don't think this would work as a substitute for eggs in pancakes. If you want a shelf stable/camp worthy/easy pancake solution there is a version of Bisquick that is just add water. I don't really care for Bisquick, but it is fine for some occasions.

They are the same thing. Whole flaxseed is not digestible and the milling of it helps the body be able to extract the nutrients from it. So even if there is a minute difference between the two, you should be able to get all the same benefits.

If you got a more expensive blender or tried blending the flaxseed before you added any more ingredients the seeds would not be as much of an issue possibly. I got the Pasternak blender deal a while back and it might not be as good as a $500 Vitamix, but it sure does break down just about anything into a flour consistency.
