Hello, You're right about silica risks, which is why any of the seeds I've seen advertised for diabetes are Pureza brand which claims to be silica fiber free. Have no idea if the canary seed works or if the brand is telling the truth -- only to say that the silica might not be an issue.

G'day and welcome to the forum.
Excuse the cynic in me, but I have to wonder if your reply to a post over three years old may be a promotion for a brand of seeds...

Hi, Cynicism - or at least skepticism - is a reasonable response, but no, I don't care about the brand or have anything to do with it.
I wasn't going to comment because the post was 3 years old -- but it came up when I searched for more information about the canary seed and it occured to me that might happen to someone else. As I wrote, I have no idea if canary seed works (just got some today), and couldn't even vouch for the claim of the company -- but if someone was interested, there was possibly a seed where the silica not an issue. Trying to be helpful with information, that's all. Pointing out that the silica fibers are potentially quite dangerous is important information, so mentioning that there may be a way around that is too.
