I believe everyone should add chia seeds to smoothies and everyday food. This product has helped me loose weight quickly and without hunger between meals and I feel so much better. Slimming down for summer.

I add these chia seeds to my healthy"raw cookies" that I make each week. They help to make me feel fuller and that curbs my appetite.

add to everything
I use chia seeds in my morning shake daily.
I have added it to coconut or almond milk for an all natural dessert for my granddaughter.
Add them to homemade lemonade for a fun drink for kids.

Adding these to all our salads, we were surprised how much taste they added.

I have lots of information on Chia seeds. They are really good for you in smoothies. My favorite is this: You can soak 1 TBSP in a 1/4 cup water to substitute for one egg in a recipe. If 2 eggs use one egg and chia. You can use the same measurement for half the oil in a recipe. Lett the chia soak for at least 15 - 30 minutes stirring immediately and then every 5 minutes so it doesn't clump.

Love Chia Seeds
I love Chia seeds! They are so fun to add to everything. When added to liquid, they plump up and turn into a little gelled seed - I've made "pudding" with chia seeds, coconut milk and cocoa powder...it's not as sweet as normal pudding, so I'm sure you could add sugar, and it doesn't tighten up as much as normal pudding, but it's a close & fun alternative. If you are making a smoothie and sharing it with someone, give them a heads up, as they may be a little confused about what the heck is stuck in their teeth. They are supposed to give you energy, & I've been told not to eat them close to bedtime. It would be nice if Swanson would make these bags re-sealable...not a big issue, though.

I love them in my smoothie and yogurt. They help make me feel full and help prevent me from getting hungry

So far, interesting!
I've read many reviews on this product being good for you so I decided to give it a shot. The packaging was fabulous, it arrived when it said it would and I'm always pleased with the products that I've received, so far, from Swanson. I'm still getting used to Chia Seeds, in all honesty. If you ever have one single seed left in your mouth, you'll have a gooey mess. As a person with a texture issue, it can get nasty. But overall, I've felt more full and felt healthier. It even made my fingernails grow faster.

Good blend of value and quality
The Bob's chia seeds are good, especially for the price. I've seen bulk chia between 8.99 and 19.99/lb and the Bob's variety routinely is on the lower end of that scale. Occasionally there are some small twigs or other plant parts mixed which I didn't find in another variety I got before. However at almost 1/2 the price the Bob's is a good deal.

Great in my moring shake.
I put this in my Shake with all my fresh fruits and vegies. Love it.

I have used Chia seeds for years. Swanson has the best price I've seen for the 16 oz bags. I take 1 tsp mid morning and mid afternoon ~ just put them in my mouth and swallow with a cup of water. They regulate my system with no adverse side effects ~ plus all the benefits of the Omega oils.

Good product, best price
I've read that chia is a healthier choice for omega 6's & 3's than fish or krill oil. I've also read that there is no difference in nutritional value between black and white chia seed. Bob's Red Mill has a very satisfactory product at typically the best price per ounce of the chia available at Swanson's. I rate the effectivness at 3 because I have not observed any notable difference in my health by taking fish or krill oil or chia or flax. It's one of those things you take for insurance based on a lot of research. The convenience is a four because you don't have to grind it like flax, but the bag isn't a zip lock. I put it on my cereal & it tastes fine just like other chia products i've used.

Not as billed
Heard about Chia seeds for a long time. Felt no difference and they get soggy real quick. Waste of money.

I thought these were a great value - we stir them into our oatmeal each morning!

Awesome Chia Pudding
I use these to make a refrigerator, raw chia pudding, add them to smoothies and when I'm out of eggs they make a nice egg-replacer.

I had ordered these with the intent to see if they really do keep you full and prevent over eating. So far I haven't been able to tell a difference, but that's ok! They're so full of good-for-you stuff that even if they don't help with the diet, I know I'm still helping my body out. I like to add them to my yogurt and fruit; makes you feel like you're eating pudding for breakfast.

Bob's Red Mill Chia Seed
I add to smoothies for the fullness effect. Size of the bag seems to be a good value.
