                I ordered these by mistake. I thought they were organic. The Greens brand is organic and at a cheaper price per ounce.

                Since they are whole, do they need to be ground up before you use them?
                Claudia T on Apr 10, 2013
                Best Answer: I think it depends. For weight loss, not necessarily. I saw a doctor on TV who demonstrated why and I guess you could try this yourself. He filled a glass half full with seeds and then added water. The seeds plump up to at least twice their dry size, which gives you a full feeling for a long time.

                For release of Omega 3, I read an article that said the seeds release more of it (and I would guess more of the the fiber and protein?)if they are ground up.

                Does this product make feel full, after you eat?
                Ivette C on Jun 29, 2014
                Best Answer: chia seed are a great source of natural fat, fiber, omega-3's and protein. All of these factors help you feel more full and satisfied. however, a diet high in simple sugars, grains and especially wheat/gluten will work against this goal, as they cause cravings for more food and usually unhealthy or further craving inducing kinds of food. So the answer is "Yes," chia seeds CAN help you feel full and satisfied, but only if you are not doing other things that specifically set you up for unhealthy cravings and misguided hunger signals.
                I find they also help stabilize blood sugar. I add them to smoothies, scrambled eggs, yogurt, etc, and I don't think they change the flavor as much as flax seeds do.

                Are these organic chia seeds?
                Shilpa D on Jan 2, 2014
                Best Answer: If was organic, it would be labeled organic as Vitamin Shoppe does all of their other products.
