Don't be fooled by the size, tiny Chia seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch. Native to Mexico and Guatemala, Jiwa’s Chia seeds are now grown right here in India. We strictly use the local variety to support the Indian farmer. Chia seeds can be used in multiple preparations. They can be eaten raw or soaked in juice, added to puddings & smoothies or added to baked goods. They are a storehouse of all things nice and worth their weight in gold!
