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 has been cultivated by the Aztecs, Incans and Mayans—and was so valuable to the Aztecs that it was used as a currency. In fact “chia” is the Mayan word for “strength.” There is, in fact, a lot of strength in Navitas Organics Chia, which contains an abundance of good-for you-nutrients that can be added to any meal.
Navitas Organics has two ways for you to enjoy chia: Navitas Organics Chia Seeds and Navitas Organics Chia Powder. Both are identical nutritionally, just different forms so you can enjoy chia in practically countless ways.
Navitas Organics Chia is grown on organic chai seeds 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. 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. You can also sprinkle a spoonful of chia seeds into oatmeal, granola, cereal or yogurt. They also work very well as a flour substitute and can be used to make hearty breads, crackers and other baked goods.
Navitas Organics Chia also has the ability to act as a thickener, making it ideal as a flour substitute and perfect for thickening. Navitas Organics Chia Powder is perfect for sprinkling on top of cereals, oatmeal and salads, or add it to more delicate baked goods like chia crackers, pie crusts and more.
