Flax seed is an excellent source of essential fatty acids and is consistently praised as a top health food. You may not realise all the health benefits of eating flax seed. Flax is an excellent source of protein, soluble fibre, vitamins B-1, B-2, C, and E, carotene, and lignin, a phytonutrient known for its potential anti-cancer properties. If you're ready to switch to a healthier diet, buying flax seed in bulk is an excellent first step.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Decide how you will store your flax seed before you buy it in bulk. Flax seed should be stored at room temperature. To keep it fresh for the longest possible amount of time, ground fresh flax seed as needed and store the unused ground flax seed in an airtight container. You can keep it in the refrigerator for a few days or in the freezer for up to one month. The flax seeds that are not yet ground should be kept in a cool, dry place where there's not a lot of light.

  2. 2

    Use all the flax seed that you purchase in bulk. When stored correctly, flax seed can last up to a year, and the recommended amount for one person is approximately 9.07 Kilogram. The recommended amount of ground flax seed to eat daily is approximately 3 tbsp.

  3. 3

    Find potential places where you can buy flax seed in bulk. This includes your local grocery and health food stores, as well as online retailers, such as Great Plains Flax Seeds, Mountain Rose Herbs and Stevens Family Farm.

  4. 4

    Compare the prices offered at each retailer that sells flax seed in bulk. Be sure to contact the retailers, and ask any questions you may have. Don't forget to factor in the shipping costs for online retailers, as well as how they ship the flax seed to you. The flax seed should be shipped in similar conditions to how you would store it at home: in a cool, dry place where there's not a lot of light.
