YEs - I use a coffee grinder to grind the flax/linseed seeds into a flour. In UK we cant buy the ready ground up stuff anything like as cheaply as the seeds.

In UK is it more likely to be available in a Health food store, but from these boards I read it is often found on the shelves in the baking sections of ordinary USA supermarkets as well. They seem to sell both the seeds and the preground 'flour'. If already ground it is best to keep frozen or refrigerated as it can go rancid in time otherwise.

Sometimes its in the laxatives section - in a fridge - as once the flaxseed is ground up, it's shelf life dramatically reduces. You can usually find the laxitive version at any drug store.

The flaxseed isn't 0 grams, and nothing can lose grams when ground. It's only in a different form not altered. Many flax seeds already subtract the fiber, or they make the serving size so low that it gets below 1g and they can say it's low carb.

While there is alot of fiber in flax, there still is some carbs. About the only carb free foods are fat and most meats

you're right ladybelle, according to my fitday software one tablespoon of seeds is 4.3 grams total less 3.1 grams fibre making a net carb count of 1.2 per tablespoonsworth.
