Quality Assurance from Seed to Table
Climate Controlled Facility
Triple Lab Tested
Chia Organica Quality Assurance Begins with the Seed.
100% Certified Organic + Global Industry Leading Quality Assurance Every lot of seeds that moves through our system is analyzed for purity and quality based on our industry leading quality standards. Each lot is Triple Quality Assured; first through our rigorous in-house analysis and quality assurance protocols, then by two separate independent third party labs before receiving our esteemed seal of approval. All Chia Organica products are stored in our climatically controlled warehouse, where temperature and humidity are monitored daily. Our premium selected chia seeds are maintained in this stable environment until shipped to our customers.

Chia Seeds: A Superfood Trifecta
Chia Organica’s Certified Organic Whole Black Chia Seeds are a Superfood Trifecta. We define Superfood as a nutrient dense source of one or more essential nutritional elements. Our Whole Black Chia Seeds contain three “First in Class” essential nutrients in above average proportion, for optimum human health; Omega 3 (ALA), Protein, and Fiber, plus very high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants.
– Protein Whole Black Chia Seed protein contains all 9 of the essential amino acids needed for optimum human nutrition at appropriate levels to ensure a balanced diet. Chia Organica Whole Black Chia Seeds average 22.5% protein, a level higher than other nutritional grains such as wheat (14%), corn (14%), rice (8%), oats (15%), barley (9%), and amaranth (14%).
– Fiber Whole Black Chia Seeds contain enough fiber to be considered an “excellent” source of dietary fiber. The Chia Organica whole chia seeds average 36% total dietary fiber. The daily dietary fiber requirement for Americans is 25 grams. Two tablespoons of whole chia seeds contain approximately 36% of the daily dietary fiber requirement for optimum nutrition. Chia seeds are easily digestible in the whole seed form and do not need to be ground to be eaten like many other seeds.
– Omega 3 Whole Black Chia Seeds are the most abundant source of the plant-based essential fatty acid, Omega 3, in the form of alpha linolenic acid. This form of Omega 3 is the precursor to EPA and DHA and converts to these substances naturally in the body. It is the Sustainable Omega 3™. Chia Organica’s Whole Black Chia Seeds average 64% Omega 3 in a balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 3:6. This ratio is critical to its efficacy and bioavailability.
