Chia was cultivated by the ancient Aztecs, and was honored as a "power food". Chia is one of the best plant sources of beneficial Omega-3 oils, especially a-linolenic acid (ALA). Chia is often stored for long periods of time as a Survival Food, since it does not quickly turn rancid like other sources of Essential Fatty Acids. Chia is an excellent source of fiber. When Chia is mixed into a liquid, it form a thick mass due to its high content of mucilages. Nature's Answer Chia Seed is produced using totally natural growing techniques, which have been used since antiquity. Chia sees are 100% vegetarian, Non-GMO and are produced without the use of pesticides.
Mix one (1) scoop (15 g) of Chia seeds into 8 oz. of liquid. Shake or stir briskly for one minute to evenly suspend the seeds. Let mixture settle for 5 minutes to allow seeds to soften. Follow with an additional 8 oz. of clear liquid. Chia can be liberally sprinkled on all kinds of foods to enhance their nutritional benefits. Try Chia in yogurt, oatmeal, salads, gravy, pudding or in any of your favorite recipes!

Be Careful of Silica packet.
Be Careful of Silica packet.
I like the product just fine, but I want to warn people to be careful of the very small silica packet. I was making a smoothie one day and noticed something small and white go into the blender with the seeds. It was a very small silica packet. I barely noticed it, it was very small, I could have blended it in my smoothie and not have known it. Please be careful and watch out for the packet if you purchase this.
My 5th jar BUT this one has got tiny bugs crawling in a newly opened jar

I've really enjoyed this brand because of the seeds' quality and the convenience of having a scoop inside the jar. I have repeatedly purchased this and recommended this brand to a few friends as well. However, today when I opened a new jar (which expires April 2018), I saw a few one small tiny bug crawling on the scoop. I then found one, two, three more crawling. They are so tiny you can barely see them but it was only at the top layer and I already saw a few, I can't imagine how many more there are in this jar. I also find the scoop of this jar to be more brown/dusty than others. The scoops in the jars I purchased before were clean. I guess I got a bad batch. I've got a video / picture to prove this - iHerbs, any chance I can get a refund on this given I've purchased this for over a few months already?
