Flax seeds and flax meal are different in that flax meal is ground flax seeds. Your body cannot break down while flax seeds, but flax meal is generally well tolerated. You might find flax meal in the organic section of the grocery either in the fridge or freezer section, though sometimes on the shelf and vacuum sealed. Bob's Red Mill makes a flax seed meal that you can find on the shelf in the baking section.

Or you can buy whole flax seed and grind it yourself (using coffee grinder or food processor) as needed . . . it's better when freshly ground.

I chew the seeds until they are flax meal

Yes, grind it yourself. The seeds keep a LONG time, but the meal starts tasting fishy after only a few days.
