A tiny seed with a huge nutrient profile.

Everyone seems to be talking about chia seeds these days, and with good reason! Chia (pronounced chee-ah) seeds are from a desert-growing plant called Salvia hispanica, which is a member of the mint family. There is evidence that the tiny seeds from this plant were consumed by indigenous peoples of North and South America from as early as 3500 BCE. Traditionally, chia seeds were eaten alone or with other grains, ground into flour, mixed with water and consumed as a beverage, or pressed for their oil. They were also used as a base for face and body paints, incorporated into medicines, and kept for ceremonial purposes.

Today chia seeds are celebrating a welcome revival by foodies all over the world and are being used creatively in many dishes. Just about the size of a poppy seed, each chia seed is bursting with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, amino acids, protein and omega-3 fatty acids. They are also gluten-free, easily digested, and anti-allergenic, making them a well-tolerated functional food.

Here's a list of some of the health-giving compounds you'll find in chia seeds:

  • Minerals: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese
  • Vitamins: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacin, Folate
  • Phytonutrients: Quercetin, Kaempferol, Myricetin, Chlorogenic Acid
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Essential Alpha-linolenic Acid
