About Chia Powder Organic

Chia seeds, native to Central America, are known as “power” or “healing” seeds and have been consumed by ancient Latin American cultures for centuries. Chia seeds provides a healthy dose of omega 3 fatty acids, protein, calcium, iron, and fiber which are important for your health and wellbeing. Chia protein powder is chia seeds that have been ground to a powder, making it suitable.

Chia seeds came from a dessert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family. The 1mm elliptical seeds are varieties of gray, black and white, and when soaked they can absorb up to twelve times their weight in liquid, developing a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based foods and beverages a gel-like texture.

Mild, slightly nutty flavour which blends well with sweet and savoury flavours.

Storage and shelf life

The proper way to store chia is to store it in an airtight container. This keeps the seeds away from bacteria that make the decomposition process faster, and keeps the odors away that can permeate the chia and make it lose its flavor. Chia powder decomposes faster than whole seeds; therefore, keep them refrigerated or frozen once you get home. Refrigerated, Organic Chia Protein powder will last up to a year.
