Vitacost White Chia Seeds - Non GMO Description

Little seeds with lots of power! Enjoy the superfood nutrition of chia in its most mild-tasting, mixable form with Vitacost White Chia Seeds.

What are white chia seeds?

 

White versus black chia seeds—what’s the difference? While both varieties of this superfood seed offer big benefits—fiber, protein, omega-3s, vitamins, minerals and more—white chia seeds have a slightly milder flavor than black chia seeds, making them even easier to blend into your favorite foods and recipes. Plus, they’re white, which means they’re less noticeable sprinkled on or mixed into dishes (ideal if you’re feeding picky eaters or health-food haters!).

 

Where do they come from?

 

Just like black chia seeds, white chia seeds come from the Salvia hispanica plant, a member of the mint family, native to Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seeds were a staple for ancient Mayas, Incas and Aztecs and considered a superfood even back in the day. The word chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and according to folklore, the seeds were prized for their energizing properties.

 

How can they be used?

  • Sprinkle on yogurt, cereal, salad, soup and more
  • Stir them into smoothies, shakes or other drinks
  • Add to batter when making bread, muffins or cookies
  • Mix with water to form a gel – use as a vegan egg replacer
  • Use chia gel to make salad dressing
  • Use chia gel to thicken sauces or soups

Why choose Vitacost White Chia seeds?

  • 100% natural, non-GMO & vegan
