I have bought whole flaxseeds from a stationary store. The usage directions written on container says that the whole flaxseeds need to be grounded, stored in air tight containers and refrigerated. Even then it should not be used after 4 days. They have given no reasons for it. I find this quite strange. I want to know the scientific reason behind this.
Also my flaxseeds are already over 4 days. Should I dispose them off? They are very costly.
