Chia, belonging to the mint family, was an important Aztec staple food, but has since then almost been forgotten. Native to Mexico, it is nowadays also grown in South America and Australia. Its seeds can be eaten raw or dried. Usage as a thickener is also possible – when wet, they become mucilagious and benefit digestion, similar to linseed.

Chia contains 18 – 23 % proteins, vitamins A, niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, antioxidants and up to 38 % chia-oil (which itself contains alpha-linoleic acid, 55 % omega-3-, 18% omega-6-, 6% omega-9- and 10 % saturated fatty acids. Black and white seeds share the same nutritional values.

Ziegler & Co. Natural Products offers chia from certified organic farming from Bolivia and Paraguay.
