    Natvitas Naturals Raw Chia Seeds Certified Organic Aztec Superfood - 16 oz (454 g)

    Aztec Whole Superfood From - Navitas Naturals offers these small, whole, organic chia seeds in their pure state – nothing more, nothing less. Long used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans as a staple food along with corn and beans, chia seeds are enjoying a large resurgence in the health food community due to their impressive nutritional profile. Chock full of healthy omega fats, protein, antioxidants, and dietary fiber, the little chia seed goes a long way to earn its qualifier of “power.” Try sprinkling these mildly nutty seeds in with your breakfast bowl, mix into a salad dressing or dip, or soak them in water or juice to form a gel and use as natural thickening agent for soups and other recipes.

    Source and Processing

    Natvitas Naturals Raw Chia Seeds are a single ingredient product that is raw, gluten-free, kosher, vegan, and 100% organic.

    Chia (chee-uh ) a plant (Salvia hispanica) of the mint family, native to the southwestern U.S. and Mexico, having mostly basal, oblong leaves and small blue flowers; the seeds are primarily used as food.

    Aztec Seed of Strength
    A long, long time ago – long before the era of terracotta “chia pets” -- the chia seed was cultivated and eaten by the ancient Aztecs, Incans, and Mayans and was considered a staple food alongside corn and beans. “Chia” is the Mayan word for “strength”, and though these cultures may not have had the medical research to back up their health claims, chia is enjoying an escalating renaissance by today’s medical community as well as everyday consumers. Also full of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals (especially calcium and iron), chia has much in common with flaxseed, with the distinct advantage that its natural antioxidants make its delicate healthy fats more nutritionally stable. Navitas Naturals offers the wonderful chia seed in its whole organic state as well as in a sprouted powder form.

    The Power of Chia
    Chia seeds are an excellent source of dense nutrition with their healthy omega oils, easily digestible protein, and antioxidants. In fact, chia is so high in essential fatty acids that it contains eight times more omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram. Also full of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals (especially calcium and iron), chia has much in common with flaxseed, with the distinct advantage that its natural antioxidants make it’s delicate healthy fats more nutritionally stable. Research has linked this valuable food as a being beneficial for many health issues, including diabetes, hypoglycemia, celiac disease, and lowering cholesterol.

    Have a Chia Boost
    Navitas Naturals Chia Power has a mild nutty flavor, and develops slightly sweet notes when sprouted. It may be used much like flax powder in creating a power breakfast: just sprinkle a spoonful into oatmeal, granola, cereal, or yogurt. It also works very well as a flour substitute and can be used to make hearty breads, crackers, and more. Additionally, chia is considered highly hydrophilic – meaning the seeds have a unique ability to absorb liquid and form a gel. (check out Basic Chia Gel Recipe) This makes chia especially good to use as a thickening agent in recipes like soup, smoothies, or enjoyed as a pudding with a touch of sweetener.

    Recipe - Basic Chia Gel

    Chia absorbs 9 times its weight in water, which is the reason behind the 9:1 ratio. For thicker or thinner gel, adjust this ratio accordingly.

    • 450 mL. water
    • Agave (optional)
