Organic Black Chia Seed

Organic White Chia Seed

These white chia seeds are comparable to the black ones in nutrition and health benefits. Their main difference is the color! Some people prefer the white seeds for certain recipes in which the presence of black seeds would be undesirable. They can be used interchangeably with black chia seed.

We grind fresh, whole chia seeds to make them more convenient for you to use. These tiny but mighty seeds are packed with vital nutrition that can enhance many recipes.

More Info On This Product

If you've only heard of chia seeds from those chia pets that are sold on late-night TV, you're in for a surprise when you learn that these small, crunchy, gluten-free seeds are a rich source of protein, beneficial antioxidants, essential omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.

A traditional South American crop, chia seed (Latin name Salvia hispanica L.) has been used for thousands of years. In fact, archeological evidence indicates that humans have been using chia as early as 3500 BCE!

Making a comeback in healthy diets, these super seeds are an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sodium and potassium. In fact, to provide a comparison, 3 tbsp. of chia has:

  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli
  • 6x more calcium than whole milk
  • 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 2x more potassium than bananas

We aren't kidding when we say these tiny seeds pack a mighty punch!

Our organic chia seeds can be easily incorporated into your diet. Use them on yogurt and oatmeal, in smoothies, added to sauces as a thickener, or even used in baked goods as a replacement for egg.
