Chia – Nature’s Most Perfect Food
#1 – The Nutritional Value Is Extraordinary!
These tiny seeds are jam-packed with nutrition! The USDA National Nutrient Database reports that Chia is 16% protein, 31% fat, and 44% carbohydrate – of which 38% is fiber! And most of its fat content is the essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). And while a single tablespoon contains between 50-70 calories, it’s a source of more than 27 essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids that include:
- Aspartic acid
- Vitamin B-12
- Fatty acids
- Glutamic acid
#2 – They’re A Source Of Complete Protein… With NO Cholesterol!
Digestive Science® Organic Chia Seeds are an excellent source of COMPLETE vegetable protein, with nine essential amino acids and a protein quality score of 115 out of 100 (off the charts – excellent)!

#3 – Excellent Source Of Both Soluble & Insoluble Fiber
Just 2 tablespoons of Digestive Science® Organic Chia Seeds contain a whopping 10.3 grams of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) – that’s nearly 42% of your recommended daily fiber intake. And that’s 3-4 times more fiber than what you’ll get from a single serving of a brand-name fiber supplement!

Is your life hectic? Adding these essential fatty acids, nutrients, and fiber to your daily meals is a breeze with Digestive Science® Organic Chia Seeds because they’re easily added to ANY meal.

#5 – Almost NO Taste… Add Them To Almost ANY Meal!
A common complaint about flax seeds is that their flavor is too strong – overpowering! What you’ll LOVE about Digestive Science® Organic Chia Seeds is that they’re almost tasteless. Slightly sweet, at most. So they easily disappear into most meals. When combined with liquid, they gel and become soft. When tossed on salads or toast, they add a little extra crunch. Heating the seeds to add them to baking, soups, stews, sauces, etc. doesn’t affect their nutritional value (though you should avoid extremely high heats).
