Founded by Janie Hoffman on a rural San Diego farm, Mamma Chia was the first organic, chia-based food and beverage company. They are a member of 1% for the Planet, a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals that have given over $175 million dollars back to the environment. They are also a founding member of Slow Money. They support healthy, local food systems and help organize national, regional, and local activities for small food enterprises.
In addition to chia beverages, Mamma Chia has four flavors of organic granola: Wild Blueberry Clusters, Vanilla Almond Clusters, Cinnamon Pecan Clusters, and Honey & Oats Clusters.
I tried Chia Vitality Granola with Vanilla Almond Clusters in my favorite yogurt. The flavor was delicate and blended nicely with my yogurt. The granola clusters are a great snack eaten right out of the bag or with a bowl of fresh fruit. Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins. The granola has 10g of protein, 5g of fiber, and 1500mg Omega-3s in each 3/4 cup serving.
Rather than palm oil, the granola has organic virgin coconut oil. It is also made with 100% whole grains and is gluten-free. For sweetness, the granola includes organic brown rice syrup, organic cane sugar, organic honey, and organic molasses. The Mamma Chia brand granola has 10g sugar compared to the 15g of sugar in my regular granola. Also, a 3/4 cup serving has 220 calories.
The granola clusters come in a resealable bag. After two weeks, the granola is still crunchy. I liked that it didn’t have a grainy texture and it wasn’t too hard.
You can find Mamma Chia products at Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, Walmart, Ralphs, Aldi, Safeway, and more stores.
