Review: Aztec Gold Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are becoming quite popular. They are taking the food industry by storm. No longer are they limited to the Chia Pet that is sold at holiday time. They can be use in health bars, chips, drinks, seed mixes and pet products. Chia seeds have a great nutritional profile: higher than flax seeds in OMEGA-3 & 6 essential fatty acids, they provide 18 amino acids including Lysine and Arginine. They also help with skincare and scalp care because they are a source of Proline, the major constituent of collagen. They are also a great source of: Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, and Phosphorus, plus the trace elements Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Iron, Boron and Strontium.
The seeds go through a cleansing process and 70% are rejected right off the bat. They only want 99.99% pure Chia seeds. The lab is fully certified. You get high quality Chia seeds and they are certified Kosher. One of the only Chia manufacturers with BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Certification. These are grown in Jalisco, Mexico which makes for high quality Chia. The high altitude and rich climate is a good combination, direct from farm source.
I use them on salads primarily. They can also be baked into breads or used on other things.
