Description

Organic Chia Seeds

Chia seed is an ancient food that's become very popular for its nutritional properties. Some interesting background on chia seed: Native Indian peoples in the Americas have long used chia seed as a staple food. Aztec warriors of Mexico subsisted on chia seeds during their battles and hunting expeditions. Indians of the Southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon of chia seeds during a 24-hour march. Indians ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean to trade turquoise for shells, carrying only a pouch of chia seed for nourishment. Sustained by chia seeds, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico hunted by running their prey to exhaustion. In 1997, a 52 year old Tarahumara Indian, Cirildo Chacarito, won a 100-mile run in California fueled by chia seed. Completing the race in a time of 19 hours, 37 minutes and 3 seconds, he beat a field of hundreds of competitors with a half hour lead wearing homemade tire tread sandals. Because of its powerful nutritional properties, chia seed is a perfect survival food.

Our Chia seed is sproutable, but most people eat it as-is, in a wide variety of ways including in smoothies, on salads, in bread, etc. Also, PHG does not sell any grains, beans, lentils, pulses or seeds sourced from China.

Chia seed is not packaged oxygen-free, and has a 2-3 year shelf life.
