          • Not Organic And Cost More

          Best Uses

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

            So much better than Flax Seed

            By M2and3

            from Hickory, NC

            Been using Chia seeds in a cold bottle of water for about 6 months; keeps down the belly bloat and fiber is a PLUS. Also, my cholesterol came down 20 points.

            Claudia T asked: Since they are whole, do they need to be ground up before you use them? Apr 10, 2013

            Arnold G: 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.

            judith k: Don't need to grind them. Directions are on label. Part of the appeal to me is their crunchiness. They don't have much of a taste. When they get wet, they soften up a little. I add them to things like salads, hot cereal, soups, yogurt. I like the texture they add to my food. Apr 10, 2013

            Sara S: No, they do not need to be ground. As soon as you put them in any liquid, they will soften. I use them in smoothies and just grind them up with the smoothie in the blender. They are very digestible whole. Apr 10, 2013
            Reply to Sara Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
            N B: No, they don't have to be ground. They absorb liquid and expand. Some people drink them whole, I prefer to blend them into smoothies or I add them to my whole grain overnight oats. Apr 13, 2013

            connie b: You don't need to grind them up. Just throw them in whatever. I use them in my oatmeal--salad and even protein drinks. They add extra crunch to salad. They are so small that I think its a waste of time to grind them up. They re like flax seeds--you can eat them either way--ground up or whole--good luck Apr 10, 2013

            Ivette C asked: Does this product make feel full, after you eat? Jun 29, 2014
            Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
            Laurie M: 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.

            Margaret M: I use it in my protein shake on days when I feel sluggish. It's a caffeine free pick me up. My protein powder, which is all vegetable based, is what makes me feel full. I don't notice any difference in that respect, whenever I add Chia seeds. Jun 29, 2014
