Chia Seeds – Black – ORGANIC
Chia seeds come from the chia plant, one of the many members of the Salvia genus in the mint family (Lamiaceae).
Cultivated and consumed by the Aztecs and their ancestors for millennia, chia’s origins can be traced back to Mexico’s central valley.
The protein chia seeds contain, at around 20% by weight, one of the most complete proteins in the vegetable kingdom. They also contain about 35% fibre (most of it highly viscous insoluble fibre) and plenty of antioxidants! This natural combination of elements makes a perfect “shield” for the chia seed’s uniquely high omega-3 content by protecting the oil from air, light and oxidation.
Chia seeds are a complete superfood and chock-full of energy!
