New in from California, Mamma Chia comes without that fizzy mess, and is packed with Omega-3s and powerful antioxidants, which are said to be great for the skin, among other organs. Just try not to focus on the fact that the gelatinous seeds in the bottle are the same ones that used to sprout “fur” on the back of your Chia Pet. Read more…

By Ray Latif – No longer just for dog-shaped window plants, chia is now a rising star in the world of “superfoods” — and a fast-emerging ingredient to watch in the beverage industry.
For a long time chia seeds were only stocked at health food markets, touted as a “superfood” with numerous health benefits. The seeds could be used in many different ways, easily blended into baked goods, and toasted and incorporated into salads. But now chia seeds have gone mainstream with texturally memorable Mamma Chia drinks.
Only eight months after its initial launch, Mamma Chia yesterday announced an agreement with United Natural Foods (UNFI) to distribute its organic chia seed beverage nationwide.
Mamma Chia offers a wide variety of organic chia seed beverage. The company donates 1 percent of its gross sales to support healthy, local food systems.
Mamma Chia Lovers!
