So I have been ordering a bunch of nuts and seeds online and a package came last night with the flax seeds I ordered. Well, I accidentally ordered a 5-pound bag instead of the 1-pound bag I meant to click on!! How long are flax seeds good for? I’ve read they go off pretty fast. Any suggestions on storing and generally how long they will be fresh? Thanks!!


  • Refrigerate them. You may consider freezing too.

  • I put my flaxseed in glass jars and store in the refrigerator. For space considerations in the fridge, I’m sure you could store the seed in a plastic container or bag rather than glass jars. The flax lasts for quite a while - I make a LOT of flax crackers so I generally use it up within a month or so, but it would probably be okay for longer than that.
