Hi,I know this is probably an odd question,but through all of my searches,I cannot find out what kind of seed they give you with a Chia Pet kit! My son has asked me repeatedly,he thinks they are clovers...lol..he is 6...anyway he has me curious now too! Anybody have any idea?

I can finally answer the question that has been asked about 172 times since we slapped the seeds on!..funny thing I have some Aztec in my bloodline,my grandfather was Aztec Indian 100%...lol...and apparently these were food source some of my ancestors depended on!Thanks again Ronnie!BIG HUGS!

Now this got me! I was curious once agirlsgirl asked & wondered "just WHAT IS that?" LOL!
So I looked up that link from Ronnie17 & started going from there - well after 3-4 hours of looking up different search links on it, I will be trying the white chia seed myself for the health benefits. Some of the meds my DH & I take don't lower bio numbers as much as their research showed the engineered chia does. Rather munch a plant than take pills anyhow.
Plan to try growing it too, at least enough for salad sprouts etc.
Thanks for posting - both the question & answer!!

There was recently a segment on the Today show or one of those morning shows about the health benefits of the chia seeds.
