Organic Black Chia Seeds

About the Farmer

Tradin - Paraguay and Argentina

Tradin’s organic chia growers are a collection of independent co-ops and farms. They are located in different regions across southern Paraguay and northern Argentina. These farmers specialize in chia but also grow a variety of other crops such as sesame, peanuts, beans, amaranth, quinoa, soy, herbs, and dried citrus peels. They use sustainable practices such as manual cleaning, crop rotation, growing cover crops, not using chemicals, soil testing, and tracking batch traceability. The farmers also undergo periodic organic farming training and regular inspections. The transition to organic farming has helped increase organic product sales out of these regions, stimulated higher efficiency processing techniques, and promoted a better understanding of growing organically year round. Organic farming has allowed these growers to uniquely identify with the region which has helped increase their quality of life as well as lower the environmental impact of their operations. Organic practices have aided in promoting the protection of farming lands and the surrounding environment.

Factoid

Chia seeds are considered a super food because they are packed with nutrients such as calcium, omega 3 fatty acids, protein, and fibre. The name chia comes from the Aztec word 'chian' which means oily. Chia seeds have been cultivated by Aztec and Mayan groups since around 1500 BC to 900 BC, and used as food since 3500 BC.
