Bob's Red Mill Chia Seeds 16 Oz
An employee-owned company. To your good health. - Bob Moore. Gluten free. Packed with potential. Thousands of years ago, chia seeds were a staple in the diets of ancient Mayans and Aztecs. The word chai is derived from the Mayan language, meaning strength, and Aztec warriors relied on chia seed to boost energy and increase stamina. Today this tiny seed is a favorite of athletes, especially distance runners. The mild, nutty flavor goes well with both sweet and savory dishes. Use chia seeds in puddings and smoothies, sprinkle on top of porridge and salads, and add to baked goods in place of flaxseed meal or poppy seeds.

Dear Friends, Nowadays, so many of the products you find in grocery stores are processed to the point that they can barely be considered food at all. Sometimes you can't even pronounce half of the things in the ingredients list! At Bob's Red Mill, we don't do it that way. When it comes to grains, beans and seeds, we think nature got it right. In their original state, these wholesome foods provide a magnificent combination of nutrients that are essential to health. We honor this innate perfection by keeping our foods simple, and our chia seeds are an excellent example of that practice. They are simply seeds from the chia plant - nothing added or removed. Minimally processed, chock full of nutrients, and boasting a rich flavor and pleasant crunch, these precious seeds are as nourishing as they are delicious. Pure and simple. Those are the perfect words to describe Bob's Red Mill Chia Seeds. Take a look at the ingredients - or rather, the ingredient. That's right. There's only one: chia seeds. It doesn't get much simpler than that. And we think that's how just how it should be. To your good health, Bob Moore. Tested and confirmed gluten free in our quality control laboratory.
