Chosen Foods' daily mission is to bring the purest, highest quality ancient superfoods to its customers. The company prides itself in supporting sustainable farming, working side-by-side with their farmers and creating a unique superfood experience. After successfully providing customers with retail chia seed opportunities, Chosen Foods is excited to bring wholesale chia seeds and bulk chia seeds to the health food industry.
A rise in chia seed popularity, coupled with weather-related crop shortage made bulk chia seeds scarce. Chosen Foods has recently secured enough of this healthy superfood to begin offering bulk quantities. Chia seeds have become a hot commodity due to their amazing nutritional profile. The tiny seeds can be added to drinks, baked goods, cereal, soups, pasta, baby food and even increase the Omega-3 content of eggs when fed to chickens.
Bulk chia seeds have also become popular with those trying to lose weight. The seeds ability to hydrate allows for slow absorption of energy and nutrients into the body. This keeps blood sugar stable and a provides a feeling of fullness that has been said to assist weight loss. Chia seeds are also the highest source of plant-based Omega-3 available and are a complete protein, making them a great supplement to vegan and vegetarian dishes.
Chosen Foods bulk chia seed customers are using the seed in a variety of ways. Mixing into jams, jellies and sauces is popular, as is using the gelled seeds as a vegan egg alternative in baked goods and pasta. The mild flavor, high nutrient content and versatility of this seed have caused a huge increase in wholesale chia seed purchases. This year’s National Association of Specialty Food Trade's "Winter Fancy Foods Show" named chia seeds as one of the top five food trends for 2013. As the trend continues to grow, Chosen Foods is positioning themselves as a top supplier in the wholesale chia seed market.
