From information I got from another list I'm on, flax seed, as long as it is
whole, will keep for a very long time. I don't refridgerate my whole seed
only my flaxmeal. Once it is ground however, you have to use it up and keep
it in the refridgerator. Also, did you know that flax seed has very little
nutritional value unless it is ground?
