How Much In a Scoop of Flax


#1

Whatisthe nutrional value of one tablespoon of ground up flax seeds?


#2

I think it was 60 k/cals a few grams of fiber, touch of protein and the rest fat.

Thats pretty close anyhow.


#3

just 1 tbsp would be about 30cal, serving size generally is 2 tbsp


#4

Also, can the nutritional value of flax degrade over time?


#5

Ah yes thanks for cathcing my downfall. 2tbs = serving = 60k/cals

as for can it down grade?? yes this is why LL has stated he only gringds a bit at a time and keep it in the fridge or freezer.
