Green Foods Corporation, Organic Chia, Whole Seeds, 16 oz (450 g)9 Reviews
Expiration Date: May 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package.

As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
To get the most out of Chia, make Chia Gel. It's one part Chia Seeds to 9 parts water. I make it in a jar (shake or stir until the seeds begin to suspend in the gel) and keep it in the refrigerator. It creates a thick gel that you can add to most anything and it doesn't change the flavor. There's lots of info on the Web. Have a look! Chia seeds are phenomenal. . . . . You can find other products I use on my Page! I use only products that have Scientifically Proven benefits.
This goes in everything. It has no real taste (in my opinion), but adds a nice crunch. However, i have to brush or thoroughly rinse my mouth out after eating cause these little guys get stuck in my teeth. Other than that.. I'm feeling fuller, longer.
