Black Chia Seeds


Chia, the seed from a flowering mint, was ground for flour by the Aztecs and Mayans as often as corn. High in accessible fiber, calcium, and omega fatty acids, it has many health benefits. Slightly nutty with a poppy-seed texture when raw, it develops a gelatinous membrane when hydrated, perfect for “caviar” pudding, cocktails, and in gluten free bread.
