Description

Chia was cultivated by the ancient Aztecs, and was honored as a "power food". Chia is one of the best plant sources of beneficial Omega-3 oils, especially a-linolenic acid (ALA). Chia is often stored for long periods of time as a Survival Food, since it does not quickly turn rancid like other sources of Essential Fatty Acids. Chia is an excellent source of fiber. When Chia is mixed into a liquid, it form a thick mass due to its high content of mucilages. Nature's Answer Chia Seed is produced using totally natural growing techniques, which have been used since antiquity. Chia sees are 100% vegetarian, Non-GMO and are produced without the use of pesticides.
