What are the benefits of chia seeds?

Chia, is a word for strength in the Mayan culture. Often referred to as a "super food", chia possesses many great health benefits for humans. From the growing child to the aging adult, chia supports optimized body function throughout all of life’s stages. As an all-natural nutrient source, chia allows for faster assimilation and absorption into the body than processed supplements or other nutrient sources. With a mild taste and texture, they are easy to incorporate into your existing diet. The only difference you'll notice is feeling healthier. Below are the properties and benefits of the nutrients in chia seeds.

The US Chia difference

Chia plants require a long, dry growing season to mature, and historically have only been cultivated in Australia, and Central and South America... until now. US Chia seeds can handle the rainy climate of Florida, enabling our chia to be cultivated in the US. By growing our products in the US, we are able to work closely with our farmers to ensure a quality product, free from contamination and chemicals. By being an entirely American company, we can focus our resources on providing excellent service to our customers.

How do I eat chia seeds?

The most recommended way to consumer chia seeds is to prepare chia gel, allowing the chia seeds to be easily digested and the nutrients better absorbed. A gel will also stretch the life of your chia, as 1 tablespoon of chia seeds equals 9 tablespoons of chia gel.

The recipe is simple:

Once you have made a gel, you can add it into any form of moist food source – smoothies, yogurt, dips, mashed potatoes, sauces, salad dressings etc. The possibilities are endless. Chia seeds have no distinctive flavor, so they can be added unnoticed to almost any dish. This gel can be stored for two to three weeks in the refrigerator. One to two tablespoons of gel per day will allow you to reach the many benefits of chia. Chia can also be eaten dry – either ground or as the whole seed. If eating them plain, it is recommended to drink a glass of water in addition.
