Nutritional benefits of Chia seeds are amazing. Here are a few to start:

*According to studies, Chia possesses the highest percentage of the polyunsaturated fatty acids(linolenic and linoleic) of all crops. Chia seeds contain 60% omega 3 fatty acids.

*The protein content of Chia is higher that other nutritional grains. Unlike other grains, it is a complete protein, meaning that it has the appropriate balance of all essential amino acids. About 19 to 23% of chia seeds weight is protein.

*Chia seeds are high in fiber, a 15 gm serving of chia seeds will provide 4 to 5 gm of fiber. Our body requires at least 35 gm of fiber a day to stay healthy.

*Chia seeds contain boron which is essential for bone health.

*Chia seeds are rich in calcium, about 2 oz of chia seeds contains 600 mg of Calcium, as compared to 120 mg for a cup of milk.

*Chia seeds have 2 times more potassium than banana.

*Chia seeds have 3 times more antioxidants than blueberries

Regardless of the astonishing nutritional values of Chia seeds, it also tastes very good. My girlfriend and I make a big pot of "steel cut" oatmeal at night (the quick way is throw a cup of oats in 4 cups of boiling water and just let it sit overnight), put in a good helping of Chia seeds, and the next morning you have a wonderful breakfast that could last all week depending on how many people are eating it. Feel free to add a little cinnamon, peanut butter, fruit, or your own oatmeal favorite additions.

There are many other recipes for eating Chia, but oatmeal is my personal favorite.

Bob's Red Mill is a solid brand and producer so I feel good about using this brand product.

These chia seeds are just fine - they taste good, they are easy to use, and they are a great value in a 4-pack. Even though the shelf life is long, I bag up the 1 lb bags that I am not using and put them in the freezer. For the bag that currently use, I put the seeds in a container and keep them in the refrigerator, although you can keep them on the shelf. Since there are no markets near us where I can purchase chia seeds in either packages or in bulk, being able to purchase 4 lbs in 1 lb bags was great.

Uses: add to oatmeal, add to smoothies, add to cookies - you can add to most things that you cook if your family will let you! I've added to my hot tea, too. Can be used in sauces or soups and will not only add the nutrition of the chia seeds, but also thicken the dish. Keep this in mind if you don't want things too thick! Will be completely in chili, stew, spaghetti sauce although you will be able to see the seeds in lighter colored foods. If any taste is added it is so mild that you barely notice it.

For me personally, I've learned to do the bulk of my chia seed consumption in the morning as it really gives me more energy. If I have very much later in the day then I don't want to go to bed. Honestly, after eating these for a couple of weeks, there was a marked increase in my energy and I've been able to keep going and do more than I have in ages. Where I used to be able to clean maybe one room of the house and then be worn out, now I can clean the whole house and I'm still feeling good when I get done -- it is quite noticable.

Chia seeds are one of the newest trends in health food eating (yes, these are the seeds used to make chia pets!). They are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids (not quite as high as flax seeds but up there with salmon). They are also very high in fiber,proteins, minerals, and disease-fighting plant phytochemicals. Depending on what you read, these may be useful for maintaining balanced blood sugar levels in diabetics, decreasing blood pressure, and weight loss.

So from a health perspective, these are wonderful. So how do they taste? They taste a bit like sesame seeds, a little nutty but fairly neutral. They are fairly adaptable and can be used in all kinds of food (I've been adding them to yogurt and smoothies). They should be good in baked goods and in any recipe that uses sesame seeds.

These should be stored in a fridge or freezer to prevent them from going rancid.

These were a hit with the family and Chia seeds will become a diet staple.

This is a great price, and the fact that these are individually wrapped in one pound packages is perfect.
The seeds are fresh, and they seem to mix better than other brands I've tried because these seeds are slightly smaller than the other brands I've used.

When people notice that their bowel movements contain hundreds of tiny, white, whole seeds, they become increasingly concerned that chia seeds can't be digested unless they are chewed. Depending on the quality of a person's teeth, most people can only chew and crush about one-fourth to one-third of the chia seeds that they eat. This means that like flaxseeds, chia seeds may need to be ground. Ground chia seeds are available but for some reason, they are much more expensive than ground flaxseeds. Also, grinding chia seeds will shorten their shelf life.

What nutritional benefits do we derive when we eat chia seeds whole without chewing and crushing them? We get the benefit of the vast majority of the soluble fiber, which becomes food for the good bacteria in our intestines. The good bacteria (lactobacilli, bifidobacteria, and Bacillus subtilis) manufacture dozens of beneficial chemicals which prevent heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, diarrhea, and constipation.

Swallowing chia seeds whole without chewing also gives us the nutritional benefit from the vast majority of the lignans contained in chia seeds. The black, outer shell of chia seeds is where chia seeds store the vast majority of their lignans. The good bacteria in our intestines help us to digest these lignans by converting them into lignan metabolites, thereby converting the black color of the outer shell of whole chia seeds into a white color.

However, swallowing chia seeds whole without chewing will lose the nutritional benefit from more than 100 beneficial phytochemicals inside each chia seed, including the cholesterol-lowering phytosterols and numerous beneficial antioxidants.
