Introducing 100% RAW Chia Seeds. These nutrient-dense seeds are a perfect anytime snack. Chia seeds are the edible seeds obtained from the Salvia hispanica plant that belongs to the mint family Lamiaceae, a native to central and southern Mexico.
Oval and gray with black and white spots, these seeds are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and various micronutrients.
Chia seeds are also hydrophilic (i.e. they absorb up to 12 times water when soaked) giving them a distinctive gel texture.
