"grinding them may reduce health benefits:

Not exactly. Not grinding them means that any alleged health benefits from eating them go down to zero. They will pass right through your digestive system whole unless you have itty bitty teeth that can crunch and pulverize them. They're a yuppie fad thing anyway, there's probably 1,000,000 things you could eat that would be more beneficial to your health than flax seeds.

Flax seeds are a versatile and nutritious ingredient that can be incorporated into various dishes to enhance both flavor and nutritional content. Here are some creative ideas for incorporating flax seeds into your diet:

1) Smoothies: Add a tablespoon of ground flax seeds to your favorite smoothie for a boost of fiber and ome1)ga-3 fatty
acids.

2) Yogurt Parfait: Layer yogurt with fresh fruits and a sprinkle of flax seeds for a nutritious and crunchy parfait.

3) Oatmeal or Cereal Topping: Sprinkle ground flax seeds on top of your morning oatmeal or cereal for added texture and
nutritional value.

i grind 1 or 2 days worth of flax seed in a small spice grinder that i bought on Amazon, it does a great job, was something like $20. I really like flax seed. NOTE: Do NOT don't take medication with flax seed at the same time. or it can prevent the medication from being released into your system. i have 2 tablespoons ground flax seed daily, either on green beans with soy sauce; or on roasted potatoes. It has a pleasant flavor, on the nutty side.

Flax seed & hemp seeds are the only two plant source of complete protein (ie- have all eight essential AAs.....

...BUT, because they 're usually used only in "sprinkle quantities," they provide no more nutritional benefit than, say, using pepper on your food....One whole tsp contains only 1.6gm protein-- not enough to make a difference in your diet.

they are helpful for reducing symptoms of IBS.
so yes, they do make a difference.

"Flax seeds contain soluble & prebiotic fiber which combine to great effect when it comes to the health of your digestive system."

Sounds yummy! and I think I will get that cheap spice grinder online at the behemoth, since keeping my coffee grinding and spice grinding is preferable. Don't know why I haven't done that already.

Let's not confuse "nutrition" with "medicinal properties."

Dietary fiber is a “nutrient to get more of” and is required to be on the Nutrition Facts label, which lists this nutrient as a sub-group under Total Carbohydrates.

"The Dietary Guidelines consider fiber to be a nutrient of public health concern for those 2 years of age and older since low intakes are associated with health concerns. Since more than 90 percent of women don’t meet the recommended dietary fiber intakes, Eye on Nutrition is highlighting this nutrient."

"The Nutrition Facts Label final rule defines "dietary fiber," in relevant part, as "non-digestible soluble and insoluble carbohydrates (with 3 or more monomeric units), and lignin that are intrinsic and intact in plants; isolated or synthetic non-digestible carbohydrates (with 3 or more monomeric units) determined by FDA to have physiological effects that are beneficial to human health. These effects include lowering blood glucose and cholesterol levels, reduced calorie intake, and increasing the frequency of bowel movements."
