Spectrum Essentials, Chia Seed, Omega-3 & Fiber, 12 oz (340 g)81 Reviews
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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

The Taste of Goodness
What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. We believe that the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat, the planet we share and the people we work with every day.
The Wisdom of The Ancients Rediscovered
Grown in Mexico, Chia Seed was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The Chia Seed's nutrients provided sustained energy during long hunts and had numerous medicinal benefits. Revered by the people, Chia Seed was often used in religious ceremonies which led to its ban by the Spanish during their conquest of the region.
Today we know that Chia seed is a nutritional powerhouse with a lengthy list of health benefits. It is a valuable source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that help support normal cardiovascular function and fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol. Chia seeds are easily digestible and do not need to be ground. With its versatility and mild, nutty flavor, chia seed is a healthful addition to any diet.

iHerb Customer Reviews
The product is good, it taste the same as other Chia Seeds brands. My only concern is if it is organic and Non GMO or not, because it is not indicated in the package unlike other brands.
I love chia in my oatmeal and smoothies. I call chia + oats, choats
