“Ch-chia.” Crunching on these seeds won’t make you sprout hair, but you’ll love them just the same. Chia seeds are found in our Mango Chia Vitamin Infusion Pod. This delicious chia seed drink is packed with flavor and a good source of the antioxidant Vitamins C and E.
Chia seeds are black or white in color and are harvested from a flowering plant in the mint family known as Salvia hispanica.
Given that chia seeds first resurfaced in our homes as a novelty item -- the incredibly popular terracotta figurine, it’s hard to imagine that chia seeds are one of the oldest forms of nutrition. They have been cultivated as a food source since as early as 3500 BC by the Aztecs.
Another fun fact: these tiny seeds can expand and retain an estimated 10 times their dry weight in liquid form.
