Beauty News NYC has found Nutiva’s newest super food – Organic Chia Seeds. Packed with fiber, protein, minerals, omega-3 and antioxidants, these seeds have become a new staple to every New York diet.

A one ounce (28 g) serving of chia seeds contains 9 percent of the recommended daily value for protein, 13 percent of oil and 42 percent of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber. Chia is a rich source of essential minerals including phosphorous and manganese as well as calcium and trace amounts of sodium and potassium. Chia seeds also contain healthy antioxidants.

Organic Hemp Seeds are an added staple to the super food family. Packed with protein, Omega-3, and healthy minerals, Hemp Seeds can be added to any shake, smoothie, or salad. Each bag of Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed contains 7.5 grams of Omega-6, 3 grams of Omega-3, 0.6 grams of super omega-6, and 0.3 grams of super omega-3.
