WHITE CHIA IS A SUPERFOOD
Although tiny, these seeds from the Salvia Hispanica plant pack such a nutritional punch that nutritionists call Chia a superfood. With a protein content of up to 25 percent, and dietary fiber reaching 30 percent, mature Chia seeds of all colors are a wholesome addition to breads, cereals and drinks. Chia also contains significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
For Ground Shipping (including free shipping orders) they must be placed by Monday 12/18 for Christmas Delivery but keep in mind there is no guarantee if there are unexpected shipping slow downs. We still encourage to select next or 2nd day UPS shipping to be 100% guaranteed.

SUPER SMOOTH SMOOTHIE
Dry Chia Seeds can also be added whole or ground to smoothies and juices, mixed into yogurt or oatmeal, or sprinkled on top of a salad. If you’re adding the seeds to a drink or a “wet” dish like oatmeal, they’ll swell up slightly while you eat, but they’ll retain a slight crunch. White Chia seeds can be used in many ways to supplement the diet with extra omega-3, protein and fibre. When added to water, much like flax seeds (linseeds), chia swells and surrounds itself with a soft, flavourless gel. This makes it suitable for adding to juices and smoothies as they are less likely to sink to the bottom. As well as in drinks, chia seeds can be added straight to cereals, yoghurts and even bread dough.
CHIA & THE POWER OF FIBER
The United States dietary guidelines for 2015 to 2020 suggest that men under the age of 50 years should consume 30.8 grams (g) of fiber per day and women under the age of 50 years should consume 25.2 g per day.
For adults over 50 years of age, the recommendation for men is 28 g per day, and for women, it is 22.4 g per day. Most people consume less than half of that recommendation.
The easiest way to increase fiber intake is to eat more plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and unprocessed grains. Just one ounce of chia seeds provides 10 grams of fiber, almost half the daily recommendation for a woman over 50 years.
Chia seeds are harvested from a flowering plant in the mint family known as Salvia hispanica, which is native to parts of Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seeds have only become a commercially popular health food in the last decade or so, but they’re actually one of the oldest forms of nutrition, and were a staple of Mayan and Aztec diets. These tiny seeds can expand to hold about 10 times their dry weight in liquid. When they absorb liquid, the seeds swell into gel-like globules reminiscent of miniature tapioca balls.
