About This Food

Description

Chia has made a comeback! Finally this tiny seed is getting the nutritional credit it deserves.

Long prized by the Aztecs and known as the "running food" for the amazing energy it provides, chia is a complete protein, and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids as well as a soluble fiber called mucilage.

Selecting & Storing

Store chia seeds in a cool, dry place.
