- Natural Source of Essential Fatty Acids
- Excellent Source of Fiber
While most of us know Chia from the popular and peculiar Chia Pets, Chia is far more than a humorous ornamental plant. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is one of the best-known plant sources of essential fatty acids, which account for almost two-thirds of Chia’s total fatty acid make-up. Chia Seeds are also an excellent source of fiber.
