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.

“Ordered two pounds of Chia seeds (1 black and 1 white). They were shipped the next morning with an ETA of 03/23 and what do you know? They came! Appear to be good quality seeds and quality packaging (and I laughed at the foam packing peanuts - very clever kids!). Will def buy from Nuts Online again. Thanks guys.”

“Not only do I love the chia that I ordered from you, I have to say kudos on using quality packaging! My cat will chew on any plastic bag in his reach, and will get on the kitchen counters when I'm not home--he attempted to eat the bag of chia on the counter when I wasn't around, but didn't even puncture the plastic! Thanks for going the extra mile every step of the way!”

I love oatmeal all of my life,but this is awesome. it adds a great nutty flavor. it did not need milk. i just added heart smart margarine(I have heart troubles) I could not eat it fast enough.
