Chia Seeds are our latest “super food” from Arcade Snacks. Packed with protein, fiber and Omega-3 our Black Chia Seeds are the perfect secret ingredient to any recipe. Chia seeds are harvested from a flowering plant in the mint family known as Salvia hispanica, which is native to parts of Mexico and Guatemala. Chia Seeds are one of the oldest forms of nutrition, and were a staple of Mayan and Aztec diets. These tiny seeds can expand to hold about 10 times their dry weight in liquid. When they absorb liquid, the seeds swell into gel-like globules reminiscent of miniature tapioca balls. We import our Chia Seeds from Mexico, Argentina, or Paraguay.
