        The Taste of Goodness

        What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. We believe that the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about the foods we eat, the planet we share and the people we work with every day.

        The Wisdom of The Ancients Rediscovered

        Grown in Mexico, Chia Seed was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The Chia Seed's nutrients provided sustained energy during long hunts and had numerous medicinal benefits. Revered by the people, Chia Seed was often used in religious ceremonies which led to its ban by the Spanish during their conquest of the region.

        Today we know that Chia seed is a nutritional powerhouse with a lengthy list of health benefits. It is a valuable source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that help support normal cardiovascular function and fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol. Chia seeds are easily digestible and do not need to be ground. With its versatility and mild, nutty flavor, chia seed is a healthful addition to any diet.

      Directions
      1 Tbsp. daily. Add to yogurt, cereal, smoothies or salads; eat it whole or ground, raw or in baked goods. Seeds soaked in water (1:9 ratio) form a gel that can be flavored and enjoyed as a snack. Add some seeds to a water bottle to help keep the body hydrated during exercise. Consult your healthcare practitioner for your individual needs.

      Warning
      Refrigerate after opening. Best if used 3-4 months after opening. Can be frozen to extend shelf life.
