Long before the introduction of chia seeds into the North American diet, these tiny super-seeds have remained a South American staple as the ultimate seed for wellness and health. Chia Seeds are handpicked from the purple flowers of the Salvia Hispanica, a crop indigenous to Southern Mexico and South America. Once the flowers have fully matured, the chia seeds are delicately threshed off the petals, yielding seeds and nutritional richness. Being neutral in taste, you can add these versatile little seeds in many of your favorite dishes and drinks! You may also create a chia seed super gel by adding water to create a super fibrous gel that aids in digestion.
