Chia Seed

Overview

Chia seed is well recognized as the ancient superfood of the Aztecs. Ancient cultures throughout Central America have long enjoyed chia seeds as a key part of their food and medicine. This remarkable seed is now taking North America by storm due to its unique nutrient profile. Contributing a slightly nutty flavor, chia seeds are one of the few seeds with a higher percentage of omega-3 fatty acids than omega-6 fatty acids. Chia has an innate ability to absorb liquid, which makes it ideal for hydration and feeling full. Helping to ease digestion, Chia seeds can also assist in reducing inflammation, and improving joint strength and skin complexion. A typical chia seed contains 30% soluble fiber, 30% protein, and proves to be particularly rich in free radical fighting antioxidants.
