Chia Seeds GoldSustainably Farmed, Certified-Organic Chia Seeds
Chia, also known as Salvia hispanica, is a Latin American plant recognized as part of the mint family. These tiny black and white seeds were used during Mayan and Aztec times as an energy booster because of their concentrated content of fiber, protein, antioxidants, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Chia seeds are a convenient and inexpensive addition to a healthy, well-balanced diet and can be incorporated in many ways, including sprinkling them on salads, soups, and yogurt, mixing them into smoothies, or as a vegan substitute for egg in baking.
Chia seeds are a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber-- the soluble fiber supports satiety and calorie control, and the insoluble fiber supports digestive and colon health. The protein in chia seeds helps slow the digestive process, which can help sustain a feeling of fullness longer and support healthy glucose balance. Chia seeds are a natural source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and can help support weight loss by improving circulation during exercise, supporting the body’s inflammation response, and enhancing muscle recovery following a workout.
