White Chia Seeds
Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are extremely high in Omega 3 and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Our Chia seeds are raw, Non-GMO, non-irradiated, and produced without pesticides. These are similar to the brand name Salba and contain the same high nutritional value as the black Chia seeds.
30% of Chia seed oil is Omega 3 oil. 10% of its oil is Omega 6 oil. This is the perfect balance of essential fatty acids.
Chia seeds are great for athletes because they are highly hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies.
Studies show that eating chia seed slows down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that the chia seed may have great benefits for diabetics.
The chia seed gels when becoming wet and this gel, when in our digestive systems, helps prevent some of the food, hence calories that we eat from getting absorbed into our system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes the chia seed a great diet helper. Eating the seeds also helps dieters by making them feel fuller faster so they will be less hungry.
You do not need to grind the Chia Seeds to digest it. It is a relatively easy to digest seed, whereas flax seeds are not. Often, one has to grind flax seeds to be able to process them in their digestive system. That is not the case with chia seeds.
Chia seeds can be eaten raw as a dietary fiber and omega 3 supplement. Chia seeds soaked in water or fruit juice are also often consumed and is known in Mexico as chia fresca. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.

“I got my order in the promised 2 days....AMAZING! I'd been looking for Chia seeds locally, to no avail - enter Nuts Online. I've been enjoying the Chia seeds in my oatmeal every morning and I really like it. Next on my to-do list is making some wonderful Chia spice cookies with the cardamom that I purchased at the same time as the Chia seeds. Can't wait. Thanks for the insanely fast ship!”

“I became acquainted with your company as a result of researching chia seeds online. Someone posted a comment regarding the price per pound and included your link as an example of a more cost effective way to purchase the seeds. I clicked on the link....and soon became a customer. I really don't do a lot of online purchasing, however, I just received my second order from you in the past 3 weeks. I'm impressed with everything you're doing from your marketing strategy to your customer service. I'd love to see a business model, because IT WORKS! ”
