Why is MILA better?
There is no better way to get Omega-3s than with Mila, which has a higher percentage of ALA content than flax.
Nutritional comparison done with nine different samples of chia seed.
Mila has 173% more ALA than other chia seed.

Mila was compared to eight other chia seed samples.

Mila is a whole raw food, the seed of Salvia Hispanica L (chia), a member of the mint family. It contains no additives, no preservatives, no artificial anything.
No animal products. No insecticides. Non-genetically modified. Pure, simple, great!
There are many types of chia, but Mila -- The Miracle Seed -- is named as such for three main reasons.
First, we carefully select our seed
from different regions, paying special attention to such important factors as climate, soil, and time of harvest as these affect the seed quality. We also look at seed maturity; the omega-3 content of immature seeds is very low so it's important to choose mature seeds for our blend.
Second, our seed cleaning process
ensures that the chosen seeds are of the absolute best quality. Despite seed choice, if a grinding process is then used, it becomes easy to mask the inclusion of lower-quality seeds. Mila, on the other hand, undergoes a cold fracture process to mechanically open the seeds, and only the best seed blend is used.
Third, we carefully control how the seed is opened
using a unique proprietary cold-fracture system that results in no increase in temperature, a factor which would otherwise lead to unwanted oxidation. Unlike the abrasive and harsh process of grinding, which causes the oils to be released and lost, our process preserves the nutritional value of the seed and increases bioavailability, meaning your body will get more out of the seed as your stomach acids access all aspects of what the seed has to offer.
It is the unique combination of these three factors -- our carefully selected blend, our cleaning process, and the mechanical-opening of the seed -- that makes Mila the best source of chia available.
Chia seed analysis showed that this oil seed (especially Mila) is very high in ALA (samples varied widely), mineral content, protein, and fiber.
There is every reason to believe that there should be multiple health benefits from this increase.

That means that due to the way the chia seed of Mila is produced and packaged, your body can use 98% of all the benefits of the seed. Other chia doesn't even come close.
