Why eat chia every day? Chia is a complete superfood that contains many of the nutrients that our bodies need to maintain optimal health. Being as versatile as it is, it’s easy to integrate chia in our everyday diets and to take advantage of the wholesome benefits it provides:



  • Enrich yourself with Omega-3: it only takes 2 tablespoons of chia to provide you with 100% of your daily requirement of Omega-3s.

  • Control your glycemic index level: chia helps slow down the absorption of sugar in the blood, which prevents spikes in your body’s insulin levels. Because of this, chia makes a great ally to diabetics and the sweet-toothed alike.

  • Regulate intestinal transit: the high fiber content in chia helps to regulate intestinal transit and nourish the good bacteria in the intestinal flora.

  • Suppress your appetite: In liquid, chia expands to 10 times its weight which is why it is often associated with weight-loss. Chia provides the long-lasting sensation of feeling full, preventing you from snacking between meals.


There is no significant difference in taste and nutritional profile between PRANA’s organic white and black chia seeds, with the exception that our black chia has a minimally superior content of antioxidants due to its color. Both are certified organic and have the same texture and application.

Health Facts

Organic Ground Black Chia Seeds Nutrition Facts

History

Chia is native to Mexico’s central valleys and belongs to the mint family. Often gifted to the Gods, it was the third most important food crop after corn and beans in the Aztec culture. Along with the Mayans, they were the first to cultivate the seed. Chia was rediscovered in the 1990s after having been ignored for centuries, and has been consistently rising in popularity since because of its numerous nutritional virtues.

Culinary Uses

Add chia to your favourite dishes: cereals, yogurts, smoothies, juices, cakes, soups, sauces, salads, dressings.

Do you have an egg allergy? Chia seeds are an excellent substitute for eggs! Soak 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds in 3 tablespoons of water for each egg your recipe requires.

Preservation

Preserve in a cool dry place protected from light and humidity for up to 24 months.

Origin

Paraguay

Did You Know?

Chia seeds were once used by the Aztec warriors as a survival food due to its richness in protein and nutrients. It was said that one tablespoon of chia could sustain a warrior for 24 hours, which is likely why the word chia is Mayan for “strength”.

Excellent pudding filler! Written By: Francine
I love chia seeds and I use them in many dishes. My favorite one is Peach Pudding. I add Chia seeds and they absorb the extra liquid coming out of the peaches as they bake. Delicious! And my guests are always wondering what these black gellied balls are in the pudding!
So practical! Written By: Evelyne
Ground for almost the same price! What can you ask more? Maybe a smaller size ;-)
I love this product, I use it instead of hemp seeds (which recipe calls for) in my bliss balls. They add so much texture and nutrition, and a little goes a long way! Written By: Sheri
