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.

“Ha! You don't realize what kind of a "nut" I am. It's nice to have some upbeat humor relayed in a followup. Yes, I got the order and it looks great. I will soon be diving into it and using it. I use chia seeds every nite on my spinach salad and add it to soups sometimes too. Was glad to find it at a much reduced price from the Salba brand I've been using. Also, so glad to find the dried cranberries and the sunflower seeds. I'm a severe diabetic and have been really struggling with blood sugar control for many years.The traditional diabetic drugs quit working for me so I have switched to all natural approach and have succeeded in getting my HbA1c back to normal but have not been able to get off the massive doses of insulin yet. I can only assume that years of traditional diabetic drugs and insulin have damaged my system and it's going to take a long time to repair or improve it with a different approach. I wish there was a natural or homeopathic Dr. in my state but I've not been able to locate any so I'm stuck with doing research and accessing things on the web. I'm making progress but it's been very slow. So, I'm delighted to have found your online store with a number of healthy foods I can use.
Thanks for your good service and your upbeat "nutty" approach!!

“I love these products. I ordered because the prices on chia seed are the best around. But the goji berries and raw cacao nibs I ordered are wonderful too. I also ordered a sample of the Organic Raw Cacao Goji Energy Squares, and they are really, really good. I think I'll get a full-sized order of them the next time I order--and there will definitely be a next time!”

“The poor little package sat in the rain all afternoon and was totally soaked through. I could just peel it apart.
But thanks to your perfect packaging, there was no harm done and I am sure that I will enjoy the chia seed and be back for more.”
