Nutiva Organic Chia Seed 3 lbs. (1.36 kg)

Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds are small and dark-colored, crunchy and non-glutinous seeds. They offer a rich source of pure plant protein, beneficial antioxidants, essential Omega-3 fatty acids, and important dietary soluble and insoluble fiber. The chia seed's numerous health benefits make these "super seeds" a favorite amongst health-conscoius eaters.

The chia seed (Salvia hispanica L) is a traditional South American crop—it has been revered for thousands of years and evidence discovered by archaeologists suggests chia seeds were in use by humans as early as 3500 BCE. Chia seeds are an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sodium and potassium. The chia seed has a number of powerful antioxidants, which are molecules that inhibit the damaging oxidative process on cells, including caffeic and chlorogenic acids, myricetin, quercetin, and kaempferol. All of the antioxidants in chia seeds have been linked to reducing the signs of aging and decreasing the risk of certain diseases including several types of cancer.

The chia seed is also a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids—containing more Omega-3 than flax seeds. Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in healthy cholesterol levels, heart health, brain function, healthy hair and skin, and have been linked to boosting mood and treating certain types of depression.

When choosing chia seeds, organic is the way to go. Conventional chia seed products are commonly exposed to harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides such as organophosphates, which have been linked to a number of health risks. The use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers on crops are not only toxic when consumed, but they also devastate ground water and can be harmful to animal and plant life.

Chia seeds can be consumed dried, like poppy seeds, or they can be soaked in liquid, like tapioca and used as a gel.

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.

    I have been using Chia seeds for years, they are very high in Emaga 3 oils and I use them in my smoothy each morning. I grind them with flax seeds for lots of Emaga 3's and I also make Chia Milk and use that in my smoothy as well. These are the best seeds around.
