Good or bad quality chia seed judging on the color of the seeds:

the most visible difference between good and bad quality chia seeds is the existence of yellow, yellowish, brownish, brown seeds. These yellow/ brown seeds are immature and contain less minerals, proteins vitamins and omega-3. Good quality seeds are pure dark with or brown. There is no difference in texture between with or brown seeds. They are both the same in fibers, minerals, vitamins and omega-3. This is not true for the yellow brown colored seeds.


The origin of the yellow brown seeds are from a deficit harvest.

Thru life of the crop suddenly some harsh weather came across with cold or too much rain. This made the crop to mature too fast producing immature seeds. Because these are low quality seeds, the price should be much lower, however, some suppliers make use of client’s unawareness.
