Nutiva - Organic Chia Seed Black - 12 oz (340g)

Nutiva - Organic Chia Seed Black is ground fresh, whole chia seeds to make them more convenient for you to use. These tiny but mighty seeds are packed with vital nutrition that can enhance many recipes.

Chia Seeds were revered by the people of the ancient Aztec and Mayan as vital nourishment. These mighty, gluten-free seeds, packed with omega-3, protein, rare antioxidants and fiber, are making a strong comeback in the 21st century. Enjoy them in yogurt, oatmeal, baked goods or smoothies. Visit the Nutiva Kitchen for recipes and tips.

Chia Seed Black contains small, crunchy, gluten-free seeds that are a rich source of protein, beneficial antioxidants, essential omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. A traditional South American crop, chia seed (Latin name Salvia hispanica L.) has been used for thousands of years. In fact, archeological evidence indicates that humans have been using chia as early as 3500 BCE! Making a comeback in healthy diets, these super seeds are an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sodium and potassium. In fact, to provide a comparison, 3 tbsp. of chia has:

  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli
  • 6x more calcium than whole milk
  • 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 2x more potassium than bananas


We aren't kidding when we say these tiny seeds pack a mighty punch!
Our organic chia seeds can be easily incorporated into your diet. Use them on yogurt and oatmeal, in smoothies, added to sauces as a thickener, or even used in baked goods as a replacement for egg.

What is a chia seed?
Chia is a very nutritious, ancient seed that has been commonly used in Latin American countries for thousands of years.

Is it the same seed as in those chia pets?
Yes, those are chia seeds! They sprout into microgreens, which you can add to salads or sandwiches, or just eat plain. They are similar to alfalfa sprouts in taste and texture.

What do chia seeds taste like?
When eaten dry, chia tastes a bit like a poppy seed. It is dense, small and crunchy. Soaked chia seeds absorb liquid and become very plump, sweet and soft like tapioca pearls, and can be used much in the same way.

What are the benefits of chia seeds?
Chia seeds are loaded with healthy benefits, which makes them considered a "superfood." A one ounce (28 g) serving of chia seeds contain 9 percent of the recommended daily value for protein, 13 percent of oil and 42 percent of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber. Chia is a rich source of essential minerals including phosphorous and manganese as well as calcium and trace amounts of sodium and potassium, which all keep vital organs functioning properly. Chia seeds also contain healthy antioxidants, including caffeic and chlorogenic acids, myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol, which may prevent cellular damage. The chia seed is a rich source of Omega-3, and in fact has more Omega-3 than flax seed. Omega-3 fatty acids support brain and heart function, promote healthy skin and hair and may prevent and treat certain mild types of depression.

How do I use chia seeds?

  • Sprinkle chia seeds onto salads, soups, yogurt, even into sandwiches and wraps.
  • Use chia in recipes that call for sesame or poppy seeds. Add to muffins, bread, cookies and cakes.
  • Chia absorbs 9-12 times its weight in water and can make a delicious tapioca-like pudding.
