Good quality and good for you

Chia seeds are considered a super food and something I like to incorporate into my diet. It is important to me that I eat organic foods when possible. I really like that these Chia seeds are non GMO verified and certified organic. I also like the container they come in. It is a large recycleable plastic container with an indentation on the back for easy grip. Many times Chai seeds come in a bag which are sometimes difficult to make sure they are sealed especially if the chia seed get caught in the zip part of the bag. Plus, no worries here about my kids not closing the bag. A plastic 1 tablespoon measure came in the container which I found super handy. It's perfect because 1 tablespoon is the serving size. When I'm done measuring I just store it in the jar. I have used these Chia seeds in my yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, on ice cream, in homemade granola bars, and put them in steamed rice to give it just a tiny crunch and to add some fiber and nutrients. I found these Chia seeds from Better Body foods to be of very good quality.


They Are the Seeds of the Chia

How to review chia seeds? Chia seeds are notoriously messy, wet or dry. So, the packaging for this product works. The hole in the top of the container is big enough to allow me to use a big tablespoon to scoop them out, without making much mess. The clear container is nice, too. But, they are supposed to be stored in a cool, dark place. Mine is on top of the fridge...woops. The health benefits go without saying. I mostly use them for my morning protein shakes. I let them soak for a few minutes to get the gel like substance on the outside of them...makes them go down easier. I don't chew them, so I don't know if they are foul tasting when chewed or not. There is pretty much no taste if you don't chew them. Swallowing them takes a bit to get used to, but, it's not a big deal. I have also been known to drop a few in my morning oatmeal. I am working to get my four year old to toss a few in to her oatmeal. It's a super food,,,what else can I say?


Good Product - Convenient Packaging

I chose to try the BetterBody Foods Organic Chia Seeds specifically because of the fact that it is organic and I liked the packaging. My husband and I both use organic chia seeds daily in our morning protein shakes and sometimes I add them to overnight oats. Generally I purchase the chia seeds at Whole Foods where I buy them in bulk and have to scoop them into a plastic bag. The price at Whole Foods is around $15/16 per pound. I find the bag inconvenient and like the fact that the BetterBody foods come in its own plastic container with a screw top lid and in a 2lb size. The price is also comprable. Neither my husband or myself notice any difference in taste or look of the chia seeds we generally purchase and the Betterbody chia seeds. The nutritional facts are pretty much the same as well. Given the convenience of being able to order these online at Walmart, the fact that the chia seeds are organic and that the packing is very convenient I will probably continue to order the BetterBody product. I would recommend this product to others.


Great source of fiber

These organic Chia seeds is a great way to add fiber and protein to any diet. They come in a clear container which makes it easier to see the level of seeds you have. The container also comes with a scoop which helps to add the seeds directly to any food or drink. I added a scoop to my smoothie of frozen berries, banana, and yogurt. I blended all the smoothie ingredients together. The seeds were just like the rest of seeds from the berries. Another fun way I used these seeds is by letting them soak and puff up. For this I add a scoop of Chia seeds to about half a cup of filtered water and leave it aside for several hours. Then, the outer fibers of the seeds puff up and make the seeds in water almost like a gel. This can be added to any drink. The puffed-up seeds will float in the drink and can swallow them easily. I like how it gives a slight chewy effect to drinks just like pulp in orange juice. I highly recommend this product.


Organic chia seeds (LARGE package)

We use chia seeds here a lot. Added into salads, stir frys, oatmeal, shakes, homemade granola bars, pancakes and more. These chia seeds work really well in any recipe. We used them for chia pudding we make and they worked perfectly to make our pudding thicken! That these seeds are organic is an even added bonus, no chemicals or garbage to worry about with these. I like that these come in an easy to use plastic container. When we have bought other kinds they come in a ziplock bag and it just doesn't keep them as fresh. This plastic container with plastic lid works great for freshness. No need to store in fridge, store in a cool dark place. Seeds are easy to measure out from container using a measuring spoon. Chia seeds are between the size of a poppy seed and a sesame seed.These have almost no taste but are a great way to get some added nutrients into your diet.
