We are the only source of the Ultra-Pure, Organic Black Chia Seeds - The Original Chia
Here's how we discovered this amazing variety of chia...
First, the story begins with our founder...
"For the last ten years I have traveled the world over, working with growers and processors of chia in a quest to find the most nutritionally abundant variety in the world and bring it back for my American friends, family and customers.
That relentless search finally bore fruit about two years ago.
Even though I had analyzed and observed dozens of the largest chia growing operations in the world (I have over 35 years of organic agricultural experience) none passed my quality standards test.Until one day…
I was traveling in the Central American highlands, my research told me that I was getting close.I was at the birthplace of the original chia seed, I was working with and speaking to the local Indian growers. They told me they were growing the same seed that they had been growing for hundreds of years, passed on from generation to generation by hand.
The same seed the Indigenous Indians of Mesoamerica grew, traded, and consumed for their health and vitality.
They cherished this seed and fed it to pregnant woman so their babies would grow up strong and healthy.
They put the chia oil on their skin to keep it soft and supple.
The men and warrior chieftains, their ancient ancestors, ate the seed for strength and endurance. I had found the Holy Grail!
As soon as I saw the seed, the first thing I observed was the color, it was ALL BLACK! 100%, no white seed. It had not been crossed with the white seed like you see in the regular commercial varieties currently in the market.
In my gut, I knew this was what I was looking for, but there was one more step, to verify is nutritional properties through rigorous scientific analysis.
I sent confirmed samples of this precious and unique seeds to the top five analytical labs in the world, four in the US and one in Germany. The results were beyond my wildest expectations.
The Ultra Pure Black Seed had an abundant amount of high-quality protein (containing all the 18 amino acids), higher percentages of omega 3 essential fatty acids by weight, and were an excellent source of fiber (33% of the recommended daily intake in one serving).
It had and an unparalleled high amount of antioxidants due to its color.
Antioxidants show their presence in nature through color, deep dark colors, greens, blues, yellows, orange, purple and black.With each successive lab report, I knew we had found the true chia Superfood variety, and that’s what we are now offering to our customers.
We are proud to be stewards of this remarkable seed heritage and we hope you will join us in keeping it alive for generations to come with your patronage."
