The Taste of Goodness
What is good taste? For most people taste is simply a matter of flavor. We believe that the taste of goodness is about making conscious and thoughtful decisions about foods we eat, the planet we share and the people we work with every day.
The Wisdom of the Ancients Rediscovered
Grown in Mexico, chia was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The seed's nutrients provided sustained energy by the people, chia was often used in religious ceremonies which led to its ban by the Spanish during their conquest of the region.
Today we know that chia is a nutritional powerhouse with a lengthy list of benefits. It is a valuable source of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) an omega-3 essential fatty acid that supports heart health and fiber which helps support normal functioning of the digestive tract and can have a positive effect on cholesterol.* Chia seeds are easily digestible and do not need to be ground. With its versatility and mild, nutty flavor, chia is a beneficial addition to any diet.
