How to tell Good from Bad Chia

To our chia friends......

An individual sent me an email to which was attached a photo of chia seed they had purchased from two different vendors.  The question posed to me was what is the difference?  Is one better than the other?

Here is some information and photos

The seed on the left is clearly inferior quality, contains many immature seeds (brown) and even the black seeds are a lighter color which is not normal. The seed on the right is much higher quality. So look at the seed you buy, brown is bad, white(cream) or black are good.
