    I definitely prefer the Now Foods chia seeds over the Greens+ chia seed which has a strange odor I have never smelled on another chia seed and tastes chemically; Greens+ must have sprayed them with something or maybe it is absorbing something from the plastic canister, I do not know.

    CHIA SEED BENEFITS FOR YOUR HEALTH

    Chia is an evidence-based registered variety of Salvia hispanica L. and is nutritionally superior to flax and soy. Chia is the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 and dietary fiber currently known to man.

    Promotes Cardiovascular Health:

    According to the American Heart Association, Omega-3 fatty acids can normalize blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, while helping promote healthy heart and blood vessels.

    Assists Joint Function & Mobility:

    With six times more calcium than milk, and with greater amounts of high-quality protein than the one found in soy, Chia also helps strengthen muscles and bones.

    Improves Digestion & Natural Detoxification:

    Chia can absorb a whopping 12+ times its weight in water – flax seed only absorbs 6-8 times its weight. Chia’s insoluble fiber reduces digestive transit time and removes toxins as it passes through the digestive tract.

    Supports Healthy Weight Loss:

    Chia’s high fiber content and its ability to reduce blood sugar levels after meals inhibits the appetite, thus making it the perfect food for healthy, effective weight loss. Thanks to its neutral flavor and color, Chia integrates seamlessly into any healthy recipe.

    White Chia Seeds Are Harder to Find!, June 6, 2011

    Although there are many sources of the regular (dark) chia seeds, you have to look a little harder to find the white ones. Some people perceive a difference in taste between the two types of chia seeds, while others don’t. I make the Tarahumara energy drink from chia seeds, water and lime juice, and people who don’t know what it is seem to react a lot more positively to it when it’s made from the white seeds. I like the way Swanson packages its white chia seeds better than the bag that the Now brand uses; you can re-use the Swanson bottle to seal and store chia seeds from other brands.

    Chia seeds don’t need to be cooked. They may be sprinkled onto salads, soups, cereal, puddings, rice, quinoa — anything damp. They provide the crunch but become soggy quickly. They are extremely nutritious, extremely high in omega 3 and 6 oils. I highly recommend chia seeds. The only thing I don’t like about these is they are not organic.
