Chia is a superfood, providing a good source of Omega-3, protein, fiber, anti-oxidants and minerals. Our products utilize the nutritive power of the chia seed to revolutionize the way you spread your fruit, all in one wholesome, preservative-free, delicious jar of health. World of Chia Premium Fruit Spreads are naturally thickened using the wholesome goodness of chia seeds instead of industrially processed pectin, so all you taste is clean sweetness–no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial ingredients, and low in sugar.
Chia seeds have amazing properties to absorb water and turn into a gel-like substance due to the soluble fiber in the seeds. When the mucilage that surrounds the chia seed reacts on contact with water, it forms a gel that expands 10 – 15 times its volume. This natural mechanical reaction thickens our products and removes any industrial pectins that are commonly found in jams, marmalades and fruit spreads. By thickening our jams with chia seeds INSTEAD of pectin, our products reap the nutritional benefits of the seeds while also producing a great-tasting, naturally spreadable product, without relying upon artificial or synthetic ingredients.
We make our fruit spreads with only 4 ingredients—fruit, chia, lime juice and natural sweetener. That’s it! Every bite of our Fruit Spreads is one step closer to helping you meet your health and wellness goals.
Sugar and Its Abuse
We are not against the use of sugar as an ingredient in food products, nor do we think that sugar is always an unhealthy sweetener. We do, however, firmly believe that not all sugars are created equal. When sugar is abused, either via the quantity used to artificially sweeten certain products or via the low quality used, the health benefits of such products are compromised or often negated. Such is the case with most fruit spreads and jams on the market today. The PB&J isle is saturated with products that are sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, a type of artificial sugar. Research shows that consuming high fructose corn syrup can lead to insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, both key contributors to type 2 diabetes and many other diseases, including cancer and heart disease. Including high fructose corn syrup as an ingredient in any spread is definitely not natural and definitely not healthy. That’s why our Fruit Spreads are unique. At World of Chia, our ingredients are all natural—nothing artificial and no synthetic ingredients—so all you taste is clean sweetness.
Why NON GMO
Genetically modified crops are plants used in agriculture, where the DNA has been modified using genetic engineering methods. In most cases, the goal is to introduce a new trait to the plant that does not occur naturally. Because we stand by our promise to our consumers that our products are all-natural, our products cannot incorporate any genetically engineered ingredients. We are proud to claim our spread We are proud to claim that our products are Non-GMO.
Put Your Trust in Us. We are Honest
Companies are often deceptive in the way they market their products. Some claim their spreads are made using 100% fruit, but actually use juice concentrate to sweeten their spreads. Some claim their products contain fruit as its first ingredient, followed by sugar, and then cane sugar. Why would you trust this company that sells a product with more sugar than fruit? At World of Chia, we pride ourselves on our honesty. We make our fruit spreads with only 4 ingredients—fruit, chia, lime juice and natural sweetener. That’s it. Trust us, we promise!
