Chia Seeds

Also known as Salvia Hispanica, chia is most commonly grown for its seeds. Used in breads, muffins, and cereals, these tiny seeds are loaded with tons of nutritional properties and will make you feel full for longer. They contain dietary fiber, protein, manganese, phosphorus, calcium, and zinc. However, they are most commonly known for being immensely rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The health benefits of chia seeds include helping to manage diabetes, aiding to prevent osteoporosis, lowering bad cholesterol, improving gastrointestinal health, and supporting the fight against arthritis and other age related diseases. Food For Life uses organic sprouted chia seeds in many of its products such as cereals, breads, waffles, tortillas, and English muffins.
