Just wondering if anyone has cooked with it and if its any good. I am craving some baked diced sweet potatos with garlic and dont have olive oil.

You should not cook flaxseed oil. Heating flax oil to high temperatures actually turns the good fats into a bad fat. Google it, you'll see. I had the same idea until I researched it.

I was actually going to post up a thread about this and i saw yours. Yikes! I just cooked my chicken in the toaster oven with flax seed on top to "soak" in the flavor... uh oh... hehe well it tasted good while it lasted? lol I guess ill start pouring it on top AFTER its cooked!
