If you want the benefits of the healthy fat in flaxseed, it has to be ground or pressed into oil.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

if you want them just as roughage, simply adding them whole is fine. if you want something from in the seeds themselves, you'll need to grind them beforehand.

-google first. ask questions later.

Don't have to ground it, add it like other seeds to baking and salads.. Like all other seed fiber it just adds fill to the contents in the intestines, making the passage of nutrition easier to travel through intestines if not able to break down.. Some fiber is more difficult for the body to break down than other types, but it has it's place keeping our intestines cleaned and rinsed avoiding obstipation..

Is flaxseed digested properly as a whole in the food (e.g. bread, bagel, muffin, etc) or does it have to be ground first and then added to the food?
