I think my quest for the perfect weight management food is over. Salba has been a great tool for me to maintain my perfect size 5, and my husband is very grateful.

Chia Seed: Organic can be found at www.mountainroseherbs.com , 16 oz. for approximately $.56 an oz. They have more than one choice. Of course you would have to figure in shipping, but a large enough order would take care of that (got friends that would buy with you?).

The Salba link behind the name at the first place it appears above isn't working: http://www.salbasmart.com/USA/SalbaGrain.html

This one works:

They appear to be widely distributed now, in local grocery stores it says, not just health-food stores.

Amazon.com also has good deals on chia seeds. One pound for $7.50 ($0.47 an oz.) plus shipping. Perhaps the cheapest deal is 14 pounds for $64.95 ($0.29 an oz.) and free shipping if you use one of the alternate vendors.

One word of caution, repackage the seeds into smaller containers and keep them dry!

@Zev: Jeff is entitled to his opinion about chia. As for me--his arguments don't convince me. I'm a huge fan of chia--and I no longer use Salba--I use the least expensive kind I can find. I can get it for $5 a pound in bulk & at Costco. It's high in omega-3's & anti-oxidants, & lignans--and as far as I'm concerned the taste & texture is far superior to flax. 1 1/2 TBS gives me a load of minerals, along with 6.1 grams of fiber & 3.1 grams of protein, and 3 grams of omega-3 (ALA). Another plus--it doesn't have to be refrigerated. Ann Esselstyn sent me Jeff's opinion about chia a couple of years ago--and now she is also a fan. It's a great thickener for puddings, for salad dressings, works well in a smoothie, and if you haven't tried chia water, it's worth a try. Even my 2 1/2 year old grandson loves his "seeds" on his peanut butter Ezekiel muffins. As far as I'm considered--everything in evolving and open to debate & research. Also, it slows down digestion, which works very well for diabetics. Just saying...
