Chia is all about omega-3 fatty acids—with loads of protein, antioxidants, magnesium, and fiber to boot.
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,” and therefore has the unusual ability to absorb liquid and form a gel.
Chia was historically cultivated by the Aztecs, Incans and Mayans—and was so valuable to the Aztecs that it was even used as currency. In fact, “Chia” is the Mayan word for “strength,” and 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.
Navitas Organics offers two ways for you to enjoy Chia: Chia Seeds and Chia Powder. Both are identical nutritionally, just in different forms, so you can enjoy Chia in practically countless ways.
Navitas Organics Chia is grown on organic Chia Seed farms in Mexico. Chia is a fast-growing herb that is actually part of the mint family. To ensure quality, flavor and nutritional integrity, our farming partners follow the strictest growing and processing standards.

Chia is incredibly hydrophilic, meaning it has the unusual ability to absorb liquid and form a gel. This makes Chia especially good to use as a thickening agent in recipes like soups and smoothies, or enjoyed as a pudding with a touch of sweetener. Both Chia Seeds and Chia Powder have a mild nutty flavor that is not overpowering in recipes.
Navitas Organics Chia Seeds are extremely versatile and easy to use. They can be used as a vegan egg replacement or you can simply sprinkle a spoonful of Chia Seeds into oatmeal, granola, cereal, yogurt or salads.
Navitas Organics Chia also has the ability to act as a thickener, making it ideal as a flour substitute in baked goods and recipes for Chia crackers, pie crusts and more.
