I think capsules are normally 1g of fat so 12 capsules would equal 1TBL spoon of flax.
A tablespoon is 15 grams.
To be exact: 1 tablespoon = 14.7867648 grams
"how many flax seed capsules equal a tablespoon of flax seed oil?"
Capsules equal 1000mg. or 1 g.
1 Tbsp equals almost 14000 mg. or 14 g., so you would need to take about 13 to 14 capsules per day to get a Tbsp of flax oil.
