A traditional South American crop, chia seeds (Latin name Salvia hispanica L.) have 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

They aren't kidding when they say these tiny seeds pack a mighty punch! Nutiva's 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.


Nutiva is the world's leading brand of all-organic hemp foods, coconut oil, red palm oil and chia seeds. They're a values-driven brand, dedicated to nourishing people and the planet. Their virgin organic coconut oil is cold-pressed, great for sautéing and baking, enhancing your favorite recipes, and body care. Coconut Manna is our delicious puréed coconut butter, a tropical melt-in-your-mouth treat containing fiber, protein and nourishing fats. Nutiva's dry coconut products include coconut flour, certified gluten-free with a lower glycemic index than most traditional flours, and unrefined, unprocessed coconut sugar, similar to brown sugar with a hint of caramel. Nutiva's delicious organic hemp oil is cold-pressed and unrefined, containing the ideal 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Rich in protein, with omega-3 and minerals, organic shelled hempseed is the world's most nutritious seed. Their organic hemp protein contains high-quality plant protein with the branched-chain amino acids that are vital for good health, and it's super easy to digest! Also try the high fiber hemp protein and the chocolate and vanilla hempshakes. Mighty, gluten-free chia seeds, packed with omega-3, protein, rare antioxidants and fiber, are amazing in yogurt, oatmeal, baked goods or smoothies. Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, their red palm oil is certified organic, non-GMO and Fair Trade. Since 1999 Nutiva has donated $1 million dollars by contributing 1 percent of sales to sustainable-agriculture groups for programs that enrich the soil and support a healthy world.

Chia F.A.Q.

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

Q. Is it the same seed as in those chia pets?
A. 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.

Q. What do chia seeds taste like?
A.
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.

Q. What are the benefits of chia seeds?
A.
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.

Q. How do I use chia seeds?
A.
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.
