Chia Seeds

What are Chia Seeds?

Chia seeds are small, nutrient-dense seeds derived from Salvia hispanica, a native plant from Central and South America. They are renowned for their rich content of omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fibers, protein, and antioxidant properties.

Chia seeds are naturally gluten-free.

They used as a thickening agent in sauces & dressings due to their ability to absorb liquid and form a gel-like consistency.
