WHY YOU’LL LOVE CHIA
Chia has a mild, nutty flavor and is very easy to add to nearly anything to boost the nutritional value. It also has a very unique trait: it is “hydrophilic,” meaning it has the unusual ability to absorb liquid and form a gel.
Chia was historically cultivated by the Aztecs, Incans and Mayans as far back as 3500 B.C.E. It was so valuable to the Aztecs that they even used it as currency. In fact, “Chia” is the Mayan word for “strength.” There is a lot of strength in Navitas Organics Chia since it contains an abundance of good-for you-nutrients that can be added to nearly any meal.
