Product Description

Chia is a herb, which grows naturally in South America. Regarded locally as an important food for centuries, its seed is believed to have been a staple of the Aztec diet. Sevenhills Chia is grown on small farms in Mexico. After a long growing season the seeds are harvested by machine. They are cleaned carefully. Please note this is our non organic version of Chia and is grown without the use of pesticides.

I don't pretend to be an expert on how chia seeds are grown, harvested, processed and stored, but the final product I received in the bag seems to be very good. There is certainly no debris or detritus in the bag and the seeds looked fresh on arrival in a good quality, resealable bag. The only comparison I have is with Naturya Chia Seeds 300 g, which are the only chia seeds I have bought other than these. One clearly noticeable difference is that these Sevenhills chia seeds seem to have far more light coloured seeds among them, while the Naturya ones seemed predominantly dark in colour. Does this make a difference? Which is better; light or dark seeds? Is this a random thing that differs from batch to batch? I must admit that I do not know the answer to these questions but perhaps other people do. I can only comment on the taste and texture of these Sevenhills chia seeds, which did not seem much different to the Naturya other than perhaps being slightly milder in taste.

The photograph of the nutritional information label in the product listing is accurate, which is not always the case with products like these. Compared to the Naturya seeds, these Sevenhills ones are higher in calories and fat, while being significantly higher in protein but significantly lower in fibre. People can make up their own minds about that, but it is does imply that not all brands of chia seeds are equal.

As far as I'm concerned, the taste and texture of these seeds is more than acceptable, and the nutritional value is high. The price per kilo at the time of writing makes them the best value for money chia seeds I have come across. Therefore I don't see any reason not to recommend them and I shall certainly be purchasing them again. Crucially when purchasing such a large quantity, the best before date was 32 months away on the date of delivery.

I had never bought chia seeds before so the number of companies selling these seeds was making me undecided as to which to choose. I went to my local health food store and found them really expensive so when I saw these online from Sevenhill I decided these were really good value. They arrived really quickly and were well packaged. I have to say these were really clean and free running when transferring them into a glass jar. I'm very please with the product and will be definitely be buying from Sevenhill again.

Fantastic product - good quality and worth the money. If you are pregnant and looking to add fiber to your diet but you are scared to buy, don't be!
It will say on the package that if pregnant ask a health professional.
I'm 39, pregnant with the 2nd baby. Suffered terrible constipation with 1st pregnancy and sweet cravings-
My stomach is also very sensitive
- I have absolutely no problem with chia seed. It helps to go go even more than once. I put it in coconut milk (no added sugar version) with some sweetener overnight. Morning perfect breakfast helps sweet craving! I would recommend it!

Love them, however my most recent bag came with a dried spider. I know this means they're organic and all that but It still kind of creeped me out...

These are NOT Sevenhills branded Chia Seeds and are not as pictured here. They come in a plastic bag (non airtight) with a business card stapled to the corner and originate from Bolivia. They look completely different from the Sevenhills Chia seeds. I have returned these for a refund.
