While most of us know Chia from the popular and peculiar Chia Pets, Chia is far more than a humorous ornamental plant. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is one of the best-known plant sources of healthy fatty acids, which account for almost two-thirds of Chia's total fatty acid make-up. Chia Seeds are also an excellent source of fiber and a good source of calcium.


Suggested Usage

NOW Real Food™ Organic Black Chia Seeds are a tasty treat with a mild flavor that can be eaten on their own or added to many of your favorite recipes. They are also an excellent topping for salads, yogurts, puddings, and more.
