Milled flax seed is "essentially" the same as ground flax seed, or flax meal. You usually see flax seeds either whole (and they look like a lot like sesame seeds) or ground to a flour or cornmeal-like texture.

However, some think that the nutritional value is different due to processing, as I found here:

"Flax seed meal, although a term commonly used in reference to ground or milled flax seed, is a byproduct of oil pressing. Once the oil is "squeezed" from flax seed, the meal is a lower in omega-3 and therefore a different product."

I use it like they are the same. Which milled is good because its broke down and your body can absorb. (The whole seed just goes through your system anyways without getting the omega 3's. Or so I have gathered from what i have looked up.)

But yea I agree on all of what booklady1 says.

To get all the nutritional value just grind whole flax seed in a blade type coffee grinder. My (Braun) grinder will grind 1/4 cup at a time perfectly.
