Chia seeds are one of nature’s rare, perfect, superfoods. There are many health benefits of chia seeds including that they are a complete vegan source of protein, have 50% more omega-3 than flax seeds, and 5g of filling fiber per serving. Suitable for both sweet and savory dishes, chia seeds can be sprinkled on top of yogurt or salad, added to smoothies, baked into bread, used as a natural thickener for soups and sauces and even used to replace eggs and oil in baked dishes.

We never use pesticides or chemicals and we rely on the natural power of the sun to plump and dry our chia, preparing it for harvest.

We utilize sustainable farming practices, and work closely with local farmers, helping increase their yields and supporting viable local economies. Our chia is cleaned twice, once at harvest and again before packaging. This assures no trace of plant particles, weed seeds or other byproducts, just pure, nutrient dense chia.

We are certified Non-GMO and Kosher. Learn more about our Purity Guarantee.
