Read about the numerous benefits that a healthy food may offer:

Chia seed was one of the main sources of nutrition for the Andean people. Cultivated and consumed by the Aztecs and Mayans to raise physical endurance, it was also used in sacred rituals as offerings to the Gods. These rituals angered the Spanish Catholic Church which viewed these pagan rituals as an affront. As a result, the cultivation of chia was nearly extinguished; only to be initiated once again in the 1990’s by researchers, rediscovering this precious food source.

Today, Chia seeds and their byproducts are innovators in the natural food industry. We can find them in their natural seed state, whole grain chia powder, ground seeds for cooking, and oils for direct consumption or capsuled food supplements. Chia seeds can be found in many economic sectors such as Edibles (food and drinks), Pharmacy (supplements and capsules), Cosmetics (creams, shampoos, and conditioners), Pet/Animal (fish farming feed, bovine production, horse feed, and poultry farming).

Nutritional benefits of Chia seeds:
