Product Description

Size: 16 Ounce

Aztec Superfood

Chia seeds were a key part of the diet and culture of ancient civilizations, including the Aztecs, Incans, and Mayans. The Tarahumara and Chumash people in Mexico would create a ‘running food’ by roasting, crushing, and mixing the seed with water to make a gel. Chia seeds are a strong vegetarian source of omega fatty acids, protein, calcium, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and soluble fiber. The slightly crunchy seeds absorb liquid and swell up to form a gel that helps to support hydration and gives a feeling of fullness. Sprinkle the mild nutty-flavored seeds into smoothies, oatmeal, granola, cereal, and yogurt, or use them as a thickener.

Omega Fatty Acids, Protein & Dietary Fiber

Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds provide a wide diversity of key nutrients in abundant quantities. In particular, chia seeds are a plentiful plant-based source of omega fatty acids. They’re also a robust source of protein — providing all of the essential amino acids. This mighty little Aztec energy food also contains antioxidants, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus).

Organic, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO, Kosher & Raw

The chia plant is a fast-growing herb that is part of the mint family. It's white, blue, and purple flowers produce small, shiny, oval seeds. To ensure quality, flavor and nutritional integrity, our farming partners follow the strictest growing and processing standards. Product of Mexico, Argentina, and Paraguay, packed in the USA.

About Navitas Naturals

We use methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and flavor.

Culinary Suggestions for Chia Seeds

Chia seeds have a very mild nutty flavor. Therefore, they’re easy to blend into a wide variety of recipes. We suggest that you sprinkle a spoonful into smoothies, oatmeal, salad, granola, pudding, cereal, or yogurt. Chia seeds are very hydrophilic and have the unusual ability to absorb liquid and form a gel. This makes chia especially good as a thickening agent in soups and smoothies, or enjoyed as a pudding with a touch of sweetener. The seeds can also be enjoyed in recipes as an egg replacement, and they also work well as a flour substitute to make hearty breads, crackers, and other baked goods.

Light Guacamole

In a blender or food processor, blend the tomato into a chunky puree. Transfer to a small bowl, add the chia seeds, and stir well to combine. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell and the mixture to thicken. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash the avocado with the back of a fork into a paste. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, mixed onion, cilantro, and lime juice, and mix well. Add the thickened tomato-chia mixture and stir. Add sea salt to taste, and spike with hot sauce, if desired, to the preferred heat level. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with extra chopped onion and cilantro. The yield for this recipe is 6 servings.

  • 2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Chia Seeds

So much cheaper then my local natural food stores!
vtbuyer
Some other brands had what I assume was foreign matter, which made the texture uneven or, worse, hard like having little rocks in the mix.
L. Campo
They are great sprinkled on salads, added to a smoothie, used to make raw vegan pudding, etc.

I am totally disgusted. I loved this product up until today. I was getting this auto shipped on subscribe & save monthly. My newly opened bag of chia seeds must now go in the trash. Today during my normal routine I have switched from putting 4 tbs in my green smoothie daily to making chia pudding. I let it sit for 10 minutes, stirred it up, squeezed a half a lemon in to it then began to eat it. I was down to about half then decided to look in the glass while scooping it out when I saw a little black pellet. It stuck out because it was larger and a different color than the chia seeds. I removed it thinking this looks like mouse poop but forced myself not to believe that that's what it was and placed it on a tissue. I took about to more scoops and look down again and I found two more!!! Now I feel sick. I pulled out my phone and looked on the reviews to see if anyone has complained of this and low and behold I see a 1 star review from 2012 with complaints of rodent poop. The worst part is up until two weeks ago I was putting about four tbs daily into my daily smoothies without looking. I do not have mice. This bag was new and had I not decided to eat chia pudding I would have still been eating poop!! I am sickened to think that this company has such poor quality control. I loved this product for all the energy and other benefits I received from taking it daily. If I went more than two days without my chia seeds I would not have as much get up and go. Now I have to find a new brand. Please examine your chia seed from this company closely. I have uploaded a picture that shows the last piece of feces I found before calling amazon. I was given a refund for two bags of chia and I stopped my auto ship immediately. I don't want to even imagine all the mouse poop I have consumed a day. Ughhhhhhh!!!!!!! Does the consumer have any recourse from something like this? I have gone through about 10 bags of these chia seeds. I know this can not be good for my health!

First off, I've been using Navitas goods for quite some time now. I loved them since the start. However, recently I received another order of these Chia seeds in the mail and my love has since changed.

For starters, one bag had aquired a small whole which was leaking a little bit of seeds. Which is fine. It's a packaging problem, not a failure of the actual product. So, I figured I could still consume what was left in the bag itself (which was 99.9% left inside. But here's where it gets much worse..

I dumped the rest out into my "Chia" jar. (I always empty all my food products into glass containers for storage). I noticed a few small twig fragments but I figured, meh, what the hell, a few sticks won't hurt so I decided to eat them any how haha. Over the next couple days I felt a bit more bloated than normal. By the third day, I was eating them and CRUNCH. Right into a rock. A tiny, gray rock. Fortunately, I must have strong teeth because I did not break a tooth.

Then I decided to investigate further. I emptied the whole bag out and found MUCH more debri mixed in then I expected. Along with the rocks, twigs, etc. I found what looks like animal feces -_-

Naturally, I've refused to eat them after all this. But AGAIN. I noticed something strange..

When I empty my packaged food into glass containers, I usually keep the bag for nutrional content reference, etc. It's easy when I have someone over who asks what the health benefit is, etc.
Well, I compared this more recent bag to an older bag and almost ALL the nutritional value was A**-Backwards and different! I'm going to have to post pictures, because this is just freakin' crazy.
I never had a problem with the bags that just tore open and then ziplocked shut.

I bought the Navitas Naturals Chia seeds. They are great. I put them in a shaker bottle. I use them on sweet potatoes, in salads and coleslaw and just learned that they can replace half of the fat in baking. At first I didn't know if it was lowering my blood glucose or if it was something else but I confirmed it the other day. I had stopped using the seeds and my morning blood glucose shot up to the 140's. I decided to start using the seeds again and within a few days my blood sugars dropped to the 120's and the only thing I changed in my diet was the addition of chia seeds. I love them. I haven't made the gel yet I have only used them raw and they are like eating poppy seeds which I love. Hope this will help other diabetics. Navitas is a quality product and is very reasonably priced. I will definitely continue to buy them.

I purchased this product and it tasted fine, but I came back to read the reviews to see many of them stating that they found rodent poop in their bags, so I decided to check my bag. Low and behold, I found many rodent droppings in mine. I now have this almost full bag of comtaminated chia seeds and I can't eat them, wondering if I can grow them instead? I tried to contact navitas naturals to ask for a refund or a replacement and they wouldn't get back to me. Very disappointed in this organic product. I won't be buying this brand again and I definitely won't recommend it.
