Dear clients, the COVID19 epidemic has taken a hard toll (physically and mentally) on myself and on our employees. Online sales have skyrocketted and we have processed more than 10 times the orders we normally ship out since March. We have decided to take a much deserved break. We will resume operations on November 30th. We will still be taking orders and will respond to all emails but all orders will ship out on November 30th. We look forward to be back from our much deserved rest in full force.

Chers clients, l'épidémie de COVID19 a fait des ravages (physiquement et mentalement) sur moi-même et sur nos employés. Les ventes en ligne ont explosé et nous avons traité plus de 10 fois de commandes que nous expédions normalement depuis mars. Nous avons décidé de faire une pause bien méritée. Nous reprendrons les opérations le 30 novembre. Nous prendrons toujours les commandes et répondrons à tous les courriels, mais toutes les commandes seront expédiées le 30 novembre. Nous avons hâte de revenir de notre repos bien mérité en force.

Our organic white chia seeds are loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids. “Chia” translates to “Strength” in Mayan. Native to Mexico and northern Guatemala, chia seeds were one of the main staples in Mayan and Aztec diets as early as 3,500 B.C.

Chia seeds are the perfect replacement for eggs. Soaked in water they swell and form a gelatinous mixture similar to tapioca. Chia seeds are gluten free yet they still provide the texture and benefits of grains. Chia seeds can absorb up to 9 times their weight in liquid.

 

What is the difference between White and Black Chia Seeds?

  • Nutritional differences do exist between black and white chia, yet they are so marginal that most consider them entirely equal.
  • Black chia seeds have slightly higher protein content which allows for slightly higher crop yields. The earliest farmers of chia seeds may have preferred black seeds for this reason explaining the decline in white chia production.
  • White chia seeds are slightly higher in ALA Omega-3 fatty acid content. These differences are so marginal that it can vary depending on the growing location and are often times undetectable.
  • Most people make their decision purely on aesthetics, black chia is often preferred when used as a seed or oil, while white chia makes for a more aesthetically pleasing flour.


Storage Tips:

  • Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
  • Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
  • Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
  • Mason jars make great storage containers.
  • Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
