Trader Joe's Chia Seeds, from the plant scientifically known as salvia hispanica, pack a powerful nutritional punch into a very small serving. Chia literally translates to "strength", and we can understand how that name came about. In a single tablespoon, you get six grams of fiber, three grams of protein and 2.9 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids. Chia is often considered the richest plant-based source of dietary fiber, protein, antioxidants and Omega-3's. Super. Food. Power. House.
Trader Joe's Chia Seeds are sustainably grown, 15º south of the Equator in Australia, without the use of chemical pesticides. They're an excellent everyday value at $4.99 for each 5.3 ounce bag (about 10 servings per bag).
