Certified Organic Chia Seeds
Mild and nutty flavored, chia seeds were cultivated long ago by the Aztecs and the Maya. The name “chia” comes from the word chian, meaning “oily” in the Aztec language of Nahuatl. The special oils in this tiny superseed are omega-3 essential fatty acids, which may contribute to the maintenance of mental function and normal heart health. Healthy chia is also high in fiber and a good source of calcium, iron and magnesium.
