Don't let the size of this small seed fool you! Chia Seeds are among the healthiest foods on the planet. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Nutrient Database, in only one ounce they are packed with 5.6 grams of protein, 11.2 grams of fiber, 8.4 grams of fat, and are rich in antioxidants and minerals. Chia seeds have the highest level of Omega 3s of any known plant product. They contain all 8 essential amino acids. Chia seeds are hydrophilic, which means each seed draws in liquid. They can absorb 10 times their weight. This fact makes them the perfect add-in to any smoothie, lemon or lime flavored water, breakfast bowl, pancake mix, cookie, salad, soup and pretty much anything. We love chia seed puddings. They are the perfect dairy-free replacement for a bowl of ice cream. In The Grain Market Academy we have many delicious flavors that will satisfy any sweet tooth and add a healthy punch!
Be Happy and Healthy,
