Starwest Botanicals Chia Seed - 1lb bag, fresh and Human Food Grade. Feed to your birds or use it yourself! I recommend mixing 1lb in 50lbs of your regular seed mix. Chia Seed is very rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Chia Seed can be eaten raw as a dietary fiber, or Chia Seed can be ground up and used it to create a meal called pinole. Like corn meal, pinole can be used to make cakes, breads, biscuits and porridges. Chia seeds contain all nine of the essential amino acids which our bodies need for growth & repair of blood cells, tissue, muscle, collagen etc. Chia is so high in antioxidants that the natural oils do not go rancid, giving chia seeds a very long shelf life.
Chia seed controls blood sugar levels. Chia seeds form a gel when placed in liquid and in our body this gel helps to slow down the release of sugar from starches, giving us a prolonged release of energy rather than the high and low spikes we can get after eating a carb heavy meal. Birds love Chia, and this is in our Millet Mix
