Product of Mexico
The Mexican state Chiapas was named according to the Nahuatl meaning for ‘Chia River’, signifying evidence of cultivation of chia from early times. Chia was so valuable to the Aztecs that it was used as a currency. The fast growing herb, part of the mint family, flowers in beautiful hues of white, blue and even purple shades. The small, shiny, oval seeds continue to be prized in modern times.
Navitas Naturals Chia Powder is processed in Canada where the seeds are sprouted prior to milling to increase antioxidant content and improve the bioavailability of nutrients. This low-temperature process maximizes the nutritional benefits, increases shelf stability and eliminates the need for refrigeration. Our sprouted chia powder is a single ingredient product and we use no carriers, solvents, fillers or any other ingredients. It is certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, vegan and raw.
