Flax Seeds Question

Post by asiankanye » Fri Apr 03, 2020 9:34 am

Hi guys, I have a question about the flax seeds I have. These are from Aldi and are non-GMO. Are they safe?Image
If they are safe, how frequently should I feed these to my hermits?

Double check ingredients and make sure that they’re the only thing listed just to be sure but they should be fine if they are non gmo. I like to offer different kinds of seeds everytime I feed my guys but you can give them anytime.

So I checked the packaging, and it said brown flax seeds as the only ingredient, but under it said MAY CONTAIN: Peanuts, Tree nuts, Soy Beans or smthn. Is it still safe?

Yes, contamination from any of those is only an issue if you have food allergies.

Got it. I don't have any food allergies, so it should be good :D

I have another question about flax seed. My uncle grows it but I know that he sprays it. It is probably a stupid question but is it okay to feed?

That depends on what he’s spraying on them. If it’s a pesticide I would avoid offering.
