I just ordered and received these. I had to order another item to get free shipping but that wasn't a problem. It is 4 bags, each weighing 16oz. They were shipped out by FedEx. The WalMart price was a lot better than the drug store price.

Question

Question about the quantity

It says "16 oz (Pack of 4)" so does that mean it's 4 16oz packages for a total of 4 pounds? The shipping weight says 1.13 pounds so it can't be 4 pounds of seeds. Would you please clarify the quantity? Thank you.

answer 2
That is a good question. You can usually get 1 pound for around $10, so I can only assume theyre selling four 1-pound bags for the price listed on this website. They have the item specifications listed for one bag, instead of four, which is Walmart's mistake.

answer 3
It is 4 - 16 oz. packages each weighing 1 lb. Not sure how they are saying the shipping weight is 1.3 pounds but if you're being charged by the pound and that's all Walmart is charging for, it's a deal!

It is 4 one lb bags. The shipping weight is wrong. They are listing the bag weight indivually. It's a good deal for the 4 bags total averaging @ $10 a bag. Cheaper the the local health food store.

No. The seeds are already about the size of coffee grounds. They will expand (and soften) a little in liquid. [You can have them as they are, or eat them after they've sat in milk or whatever liquid you put them in.]

I contacted the company and they said, "We source our Chia Seeds from Mexico , Argentina , Ecuador , Bolivia , Chile , and Peru". I eat these every day, mostly in gel form. Just make a bowl of the gel (seeds and water), put in fridge and use as needed. You could contact the manufacturer about the organic part
