Flax oil has a particular taste that is a bit strong. And when it is rancid, it is horrible an you should not be eating it anyway. I keep a small bottle in the fridge, 6 weeks top and also grind my own.

I put flax oil on my oatmeal, in my smoothies and in salad dressings with other strong flavours like tamari, nooch etc.

Just saying...

Lol! I hate flax seeds, too. I only add them to things where I can't taste them. For other things, I use chia, which I love. They don't have much of a distinct flavor.

Unlike many people, I hate napping and always have. If the sun is up, I want to be out living life.

Occasionally I'll add flax seeds to my oatmeal in the morning....some other days I add hemp or chia seeds...flax isn't the end all as far as omega's go...but to me they have practically no taste.

I live a quite full life...and am able to do so because I sometimes recharge with a nap...I don't always live life when the sun is up.

I use to get my omega 3, 6, 9 from different sources in my diet. Either my body wasn't metabolizing it or I wasn't getting enough.
I think the taste is being exaggerated on this thread. Put them in a smoothie and you wouldn't notice a thing.

A better way of stressing the importance of flax seeds is to say if being vegetarian makes you Superman. Then flax seeds are the sun's rays.
