    Hi~Is this gluten free?

  • Kelly says:

    I love this cereal, I add it to yogurt.
    Although there is added sugar; the cranberries are sweetened with evaporated cane juice. 2 Tbsp of cereal contain 3g of sugar.

  • Darlene says:

    This product was recommended to me last week and I went and bought some. I like it! However I couldn’t figure out why I have been feeling weird the past few days until this morning. I ate it and literally minutes maybe even seconds after I ate it I feel almost high. Like a dizziness. It’s freaking me out. Anyone know why?

    • Holly says:

      Darlene, have you tried each of the ingredients separately? My son has found he gets this when eating hemp. Our bodies can react to even natural organic food.

  • Liz says:

    Love this product! I add 1 Tbsp to 1/3 cup of yogurt – delicious!

  • fran chlebus says:

    Can I add the Qia to my oatmeal before putting into microwave?

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Fran,

      I don’t use a microwave, so I would never do that. Ideally, you want to soak the chia seeds in water (or milk) for 15 minutes before eating. I am not sure a microwave will accomplish a similar act.

    I actually probably eat more like 6 or 7 :/ …. Didn’t read back of bag til today !!

  • Chacha says:

    What happens if you eat more than 2tbs .. I eat like 5 !! Is that bad :/

  • will says:

    Max, how about addressing the “being dizzy”issue. You keep saying it’ s great. But obviously there is an issue.

  • Marisa says:

    Sounds great, except for the “natural” flavor – sub that with *actual* vanilla and I’ll consider it. Other countries do not distinguish between so-called “natural flavors” and “artificial flavors” on their ingredient lists, and we shouldn’t either – they’re not food and shouldn’t be eaten.

  • Juanita says:

    Shouldn’t nuts and seeds be soaked to break down anti-nutrients?

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Juanita,

      Generally, yes. But with these ingredients, I just soak them in a nut milk for about 15 minutes and that is fine.

      Live well,

  • Rob says:

    Love this product. Its my standard breakfast food now.

  • Amanda says:

    I ate this cereal this morning (trying to eliminate gluten from my diet as an experiment) and also became dizzy about 30 minutes later. It’s been a good hour now and I am still dizzy. I’ve had chia seeds before and never had a problem so I’m not sure if its the other two? This is strange…

  • michelle key says:

    Where may I purchase Qia in Dallas Texas? I think I bought it at Wholefoods or Central Market

  • Andrea says:

    I would love to win this yummy juice!!

  • Adeline says:

    Is the natural vanilla flavor you referenced the same as the dreaded “natural flavor” that I learned about on Food Babe and am now trying to avoid? Would love to try it but don’t want natural flavor anywhere near me if I can help it! Thanks!

  • Cynthia Bentley says:

    OMG-I too became severly dizzy after eating a bowl of cereal-WOW I looked up on line to see if anyone else had his issue? Very intersesting to see someone else had the same experience. I just bought this bag yesterday @ Costco not cheap either:-( What in the world would cause this to happen-I am not allergic to anything in this cereal!

  • Carol says:

    The best cereal ever!!! 2 tbsp with milk has made a tremendous difference in my digestion. Has completely solved my long running issue of diarrhea.
    Love only having to eat a small amount:).

  • Robin Caldwell says:

    I saw this in my local grocery store on the cereal aisle and couldn’t believe it! I will have to try it. For now my go-to breakfast is simply a diced green apple, chopped walnuts, teaspoon of yummy hemp seeds and a small drizzle of honey with a shake of cinnamon. Feels like I am eating cereal, but much better than most packaged cereals!

  • Dave Ray says:

    Maybe I’m not letting the cereal sit long enough in the milk, the serving size (2 tbsp) is tiny. I can see why somebody could eat too large a serving.

  • Brenda says:

    The first time I tried this cereal with half a bowl, it was very tasty but later on I became severely dizzy and its effects although minimal at most times lasted more than a day. For this reason I am staying away from this product and I would strongly suggest for others to beware when consuming a larger intake of this cereal (specially T-2 diabetic people). If it persists in more of us than a warning for this product should be issued.

  • Laurel Johnson says:

    Yippee as a T2 diabetic I finally found a healthy, yummy cereal that is good for me without any additional added sugar. I heat mine up in the microwave and add some fresh blueberries. I had pretty much given up on a cereal that I could eat, o thanks to Nature’s Path!

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Laurel,

      So glad that you like it as well! There are a lot of fans of this cereal out there!

      Have a great weekend!

  • Rebecca Johnson says:

    Oops, I meant a few raw hazelnuts, not hemp nuts, those are already in the basic mix!

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Rebecca,

      That is great to hear you loved it so much! And, yes, a lot of these products can be replicated by buying the ingredients in bulk. Thanks for sharing what you are doing!

      Live well,

  • Rebecca Johnson says:

    Hi there, just wanted to say, i found this cereal at my local store in september and loved it. I was eating for breakfast and lunch. Now I make my own. I just go to my local co-op and get all the ingredients in bulk. Although sometimes I change it up and use dried org. wild blueberries. I have also added a few raw hemp seeds and some raw pumpkin seeds. I top it off with homemade hazelnut/cashew milk. It is sooooooooo good. Plus I stay filled up for hours.

  • Michelle Cantwell says:

    Could not agree more! Tried this product for the first time this week and returned to buy two additional packs today!
    Best regards!

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Michelle,

      Yes, I am a big fan too. In fact, I was eating it straight out of the bag – without any nut milk at all. That’s how much I liked it!!

      Live well,
