If you’re up-to-date with healthy eating trends, you already know about chia seeds. If you aren’t, here are a few proven examples of how these seeds benefit your body: low calorie count, antioxidants, high quality protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and many more. Chia has been shown to assist in management of Type 2 Diabetes, serves as a useful egg-substitute for vegan bakers, and it performs as well as sports drinks when consumed before and after athletic activity.
So chia seeds are comparable to Gatorade in terms of performance. Know what else Hancock brand chia seeds have in common with the popular sports drink? They were also created right here in Florida.
This might not seem like a big deal, but we’re proud to say we’re the only farm in Florida (to our knowledge) that has successfully grown its own chia supply.
Chia has long been popular in regions of Southern North America and into South America, such as lower Mexico, Guatemala, Bolivia, and other nations in that region (in other words, places much closer to the equator than Hancock Seed!). Historians believe that the Aztecs were the first group of people to cultivate chia, using it almost as extensively as maize. Reports from the earliest European arrivals to the continent describe how Aztec messengers would wear small satchels of chia around their waste; if they became tired while running, they would toss a handful of seeds into their mouths, drawing energy from the rich protein and nutrients packed in the seeds.
Westerners have long used another product from that region—coffee—to stay awake during the work day, but now chia is back where it belongs. Users consume the seeds in smoothies, bread, and even sprinkled on cereal to get similar results (without the health risks that come with caffeine addiction).
Hancock is here to help you stay supplied.
Thanks to our ability to cut out the middleman, we’re able to offer chia at some of the lowest prices you’ll find in the United States. Our free shipping to the lower 48 states means that this great opportunity is available to all.
Hancock offers three varieties of chia, all grown here on the Hancock Family Farm: white, black and certified organic white. Our high production also allows to offer much larger bags of seed than you can find at your local Whole Foods (therefore we can offer much larger discounts as well!). Our products are available in 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 lb. bags. se, we’re happy to offer you smaller bags if you just want to take a test ride on the chia train before committing.
If you’re sold on the benefits of chia, and want to save a lot of money while keeping yourself supplied, it’s tough to find better savings than our bulk offers on chia seed. You can buy a 1 lb. bag of organic white chia at Whole Foods for $12.99, or a 50 lb. bag of organic white chia from Hancock Seed for $199.99. That’s a chunk of change, but it will save you more than $450.00 from buying 1 lb. bags, and keep you supplied for years*!
Need help staying energized during the day, or a dietary boost to help you through the workout? Hancock Seed has you covered, with our white, black and organic chia seeds.
And, as with all Hancock brand products, it’s made right here in Florida.
