I am so happy with my chia seed purchase. I am starting a food elimination diet in hopes of determining my food allergies. I needed to find a fiber replacement for wheat/bran. These seeds are perfect. I'm put them in my allergy safe oatmeal. So grateful for your allergy safe facility and food alternatives!

Raw Black Chia Seeds: Nutritional Benefits

There is no nutritional difference between white and raw black chia seeds.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Chia seeds are rich in polyunsaturated fats, especially Omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds’ lipid profile is composed of 60 percent Omega-3s, making them one of the richest plant-based sources of these fatty acids — specifically, of alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. The Omega-3s in chia seeds can help reduce inflammation, enhance cognitive performance and reduce high cholesterol.

Fiber
Fiber is associated with reducing inflammation, lowering cholesterol and regulating bowel function. Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, with a whopping 10 grams in only 2 tablespoons. That is one-third of the daily recommended intake of fiber per day.

Antioxidants
Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals, aging and cancer. The high antioxidant profile also helps them have a long shelf life.

Minerals
Two tablespoons of Chia seeds contain 18 percent of the DRI for calcium, 35 percent for phosphorus, 24 percent for magnesium and about 50 percent for manganese. These nutrients help you prevent hypertension and maintain a healthy weight, and are important for energy metabolism and a part of DNA synthesis.

Satiety
Satiety is the feeling of being full and satisfied, which helps lower food cravings between meals. The combination of protein, fiber and the gelling action of Chia seeds when mixed with liquids all contribute to their satiating effects.

Gluten-Free
Raw black chia seeds contain no gluten or grains.

Egg Replacer
The outer layer of Chia seeds swells when mixed with liquids to form a gel. This can used in place of eggs to lower cholesterol and increase the nutrient content of foods and baked goods. To make the egg replacement, mix 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let sit for 15 minutes.

Can Be Digested Whole
Unlike flaxseeds, which are also high in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and minerals, Chia seeds do not need to be ground in order to obtain their nutrient or egg-replacement benefits.

Dyslipidemia
A study published in the “British Journal of Nutrition” showed that Chia seeds as a dietary fat source can lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or “good” cholesterol. The study also found that when substituting Chia seeds for other fat sources, such as corn oil, the ALA was able to prevent high triglyceride levels and reduce central obesity.

Blood Sugar Regulation
Raw black chia seeds can play an important role in regulating insulin levels. They can reduce insulin resistance and decrease abnormally high levels of insulin in the blood.


Gerbs products are best when stored in air tight containers, kept in a pantry closet away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

STORAGE OF GERBS

We strongly recommend storing in an airtight container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity; thus we encourage you to not empty more than 1 pound of product at a time. Gerbs can be frozen too, but we do not recommend it, because the cell structures will change as the product thaws out!

    First Time Chia Seeds I would ahead and ordered a bag of the black chia seeds. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them, but there were some interesting recipes online. I need more fiber and a way to help lower my cholesterol and all articles pointed to chia seeds. My daughter said food, allergies, which eliminated buying these at every location that I looked into. They are fun! They the recipe for pudding :) No worries with the allergies is a relaxing change.

    So happy to have access to chia seeds with my food allergies! I have peanut and nut allergies and it's so hard to find seeds that feel safe. Really appreciate Gerbs! Love chia seeds, they are so small and don't have much taste, so you can really put them in any dish and instantly boost the satiety factor.
