To my understanding, the issue with whole flax seed is not that it is toxic; it is hard for your body to digest and if it's whole, it may pass completley through your digestive system as is, and you won't get any of the health benefits.
One thing to note is that flax seed is fiber, and you may want to add it to your diet gradually so you don't throw your digestive system out of whack.
I bought an inexpensive coffee grinder to grind the flax seed up-- idk if a mini food processor would do the trick, but there's no harm trying it out.
