Organic Chia Seeds
Our Organic Chia Seeds are tiny powerhouses packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber! Add these incredibly nutritious black chia seeds to smoothies, hot cereal, baked goods—even popcorn. Or make delicious, simple chia seed jam.
The benefits of adding chia seeds to your diet are boundless. By eating chia seeds, you’ll enjoy a wealth of fiber: 5 grams in just one tablespoon, as well as 10% of your daily value for calcium and iron. Chia seeds also contain antioxidants, so-called “healthy fats” and essential fatty acids, including omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid, and omega-6 fatty acids in the form of linoleic acid, which could help control blood sugar and also aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins
Bob’s Red Mill Chia Seeds are part of the Bob’s Red Mill grains of Discovery product line. The name “chia” Coming from the Mayan word for “strength,” chia seeds were eaten by the ancient Aztecs and Mayans to boost energy and increase stamina. Chia seeds are also touted for their Omega-3 fatty acids content. Sprinkle chia seed on yogurt or hot cereal, create a chia pudding or chia jam, incorporate into your granola or energy bar recipes, or check out the recipe on the back for a refreshing chia beverage! Here at the Mill, we really like to add chia to our breakfast smoothies and shakes. You can even create a homemade vegetarian egg replacer using chia: just mix 1 part chia with 6 parts water and let the mixture gel – one tablespoon of chia gel equals one large egg in baked goods! Like all of our gluten-free labeled products, this product is processed in a dedicated gluten free facility and R5-ELISA tested to confirm its gluten free status.
