History

Chia is native to Mexico’s central valleys and belongs to the mint family. Chia, often gifted to the Gods, 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.

The chia was rediscovered in the 1990s after having been ignored for centuries, and has been consistently rising in popularity since.

Culinary Uses

ProactivChia can be used just like regular chia! The seeds are light in taste which makes them easy to integrate in your daily diet as they do not alter the flavour of your dishes. Add ProActiv chia to smoothies, juices, and other beverages, or throw them in your salads and dressings. Sprinkle ProactivChia on your oatmeal, yogurt and cereal, or use chia in your recipes as a substitute for eggs or as a thickener.

Did You Know?

What is a probiotic?

The word probiotic literally means "for life." Probiotics are live microorganisms (either bacteria or yeast) that, when consumed in adequate amounts, have a beneficial effect on the host beyond basic nutrition.

A food is considered probiotic if it contains a sufficient quantity of probiotics and if all probiotic properties are maintained throughout the life of the product (alive in sufficient quantities to provide beneficial effects). ProactivChia is a probiotic chia.

Health benefits – What can this product do for me?

Probiotics contribute to healthy gut flora, while chia is a source of Calcium, Iron and Omega-3.

How to take the ProactivChia?

ProactivChia can be use as regular chia. It can be added into your favorite dishes: cereals, yogurts, smoothies, juices, salads, dressings and more. However, do not heat this product as the live probiotics will be compromised.

Proper storage conditions – Where do I keep it to ensure maximum survival of the probiotic?

For optimal preservation of the probiotics, keep the ProactivChia in the refrigerator or in a cold place, away from direct light. ProactivChia can also be stored on the shelf.

Can I cook the ProactivChia?

No. The probiotic strains will not survive under conditions over 35°C. And will therefore not provide the benefits effect of probiotics.

What is the difference between shelf stable probiotics and refrigerated probiotics?

Generally speaking, probiotics react to temperature; the higher the temperature gets, the faster they get inactive so the overall amount of probiotics reduce over time. In the same way, the 2 probiotics strains contained in our ProactivChia are unstable at a high temperature. Since our product is shelf stable, the amount of probiotics it contains reduce throughout its shelf life. To minimize this effect, we add organic sunflower oil in our production process, allowing to isolate the strains and to protect them against more aggressive temperatures. This way, we can preserve our product longer at an ambient temperature. There is no difference between refrigerated and shelf stable probiotics. Our production process is what allows us to offer a shelf stable product. That’s how we can assure that a portion of ProactivChia contains 4 billion of probiotic bacteria.

Why do you add sunflower oil?

The Organic sunflower oil is the adhesive for the probiotics on the chia seeds.

Why does ProactivChia contain soy?

During the manufacturing of the 2 strains of probiotics included in ProactivChia, cultures are required for development. The cultures we use contain soy.

Best chia seeds ever! Written By: Mariah
These are a staple in my household - most commonly used in our overnight oats for a quick and deliciously healthy breakfast. We keep them in the fridge and they last quite a while (though we use ours up before they could ever possibly have a chance to spoil)!!
Great product! Written By: Pamela
I love the Proactiv Chia seeds. I use them with almond milk to make puddings that I eat alone or mix with fruits, nuts and seeds. I have also tried them in muffins and in a popsicle recipe on the Prana website. A very versatile product.
Wonderful product. Written By: louise
I add them to my smoothies every morning for added protein and their great taste. Love them.

I add these chia seeds to my morning smoothies. They're just as good as the regular chia seeds, plus the added benefit of probiotics! Will buy again for sure.

ProactivChia Written By: Luigi
I purchased and discovered this product at the Mange Sante Exposition at Palais de Congres in Montreal 2016. I met your wonderful staff,
very welcoming, enthusiastic, and passionate for Prana. I purchased a couple of bags and use it all the time with my smoothies, salads, and energy balls.
Very glad to see that you have introduced a proactive product, especially that we are exposed to so much pharmaceutical anti-biotic chemical
residue found in our water supply. Our gut dictates to the brain for the proper functioning of the body, mind and soul, we need to keep it healthy.
Thank you for introducing such a great product. Lets continue to bring awareness and educate others to resist anti-biotic products.
