        I use a tablespoon a day mixed with fruit juice and left to sit for 5 minutes. The seeds turn into a gel that takes on the flavor of the fruit juice. It took a few times to get used to the consistency, but it goes down smoothly. Chia seeds are a good source of essential fatty acids. This is a good product.

        14 Ounces of Seed NOT POWDER

        The description says 14 ounces of powder. It was 14 ounces of whole seeds. Returning it was the worst customer service experience in my life.

                        The chia seeds are easy to eat and delicious. I simply put them in a little water and spoon them up like tapioca. The packaging is easy to use too with its zip lock closure.

                                  This was what I expected. A tiny seed that provides crunch when added on foods, but turns into a gel with small particles of crunch if allowed to dissolve into fluid. It's pretty much no taste in gel form, so you can mix it with stuff and it will take on that flavor. I make a weird concoction with mine, but be warned that you need to let it sit for at least 15 minutes in plenty of fluid if you want to get the gel. I like mixing mine in coconut milk, add Barlean's chocolate Greens powder and let it sit till it gels nicely. I haven't really tried to sprinkle it on anything and eat it while it's still in original seed form. Maybe soon? I think I'll keep using this because of all it's health benefits.

                                              I really like this product. Have tried several different chia seeds but like this the best. I put it on my cereal or oatmeal, in my yogurt, on my salads, in my meatloaf or salmon burgers, chili,sauces, scrambled eggs. The uses are endless. Am not happy that the size of the package has decreased but the price stayed the same :(

                                                I use a tablespoon a day mixed with fruit juice and left to sit for 5 minutes. The seeds turn into a gel that takes on the flavor of the fruit juice. It took a few times to get used to the consistency, but it goes down smoothly. Chia seeds are a good source of essential fatty acids. This is a good product.

                                                Best Answer: No bad. Kinda nutty. If you sprinkle it on fruit or greens, you barely taste it. You can also mix it in water and it turns kind of gelatinous, but
                                                I don't bother with that. I just sprinkle it on "all things breakfast."
                                                It's "off the charts" good for you!

                                                Hi - the directions say that I should soak the chia seeds in water before using. Do I have to do that, or can I just put the seeds in a smoothie straight from the bag? Thanks!

                                                Best Answer: You only need to soak the chia seeds if you want to make a gel type drink with them. I just throw them into my smoothie from the bag. I also grind them in my magic bullet to make into a flour that I then add to other grain-fee flours for muffins and pancakes.

                                                Wondering where the seeds are from and whether they're black, white or a combination? TKX!

                                                Best Answer: The chia seeds in this product are black, however Nutiva does make a white chia seed, and I believe it's also carried by Vitamin Shoppe. I'm sorry, I don't know where they are from. I have thrown out the package and put them in another container.
