Planting the Seed
It started on a small farm in rural San Diego, where Mamma Chia founder and CEO, Janie Hoffman, in her quest to find an ideal diet for her own health, fell in love with the magic of chia. Janie quickly discovered this amazing little seed was providing a powerful vitality boost and was instrumental in addressing some challenging health issues related to longstanding autoimmune disorders. mamma chia ceo and founder, janie hoffman Janie believes that there are several components to a healthy and joy-filled life and no one thing holds all the answers, but there is no doubt that once she incorporated chia into her daily diet there was a very noticeable increase in her vitality, energy and strength.

Chia seeds are a rich, plant-based source of Omega-3s providing complete protein, fiber, calcium, minerals and more. Mamma Chia’s top-five favorite benefits of chia include:
- Rich Nutritional Value: Gram per gram, chia has 8x more Omega-3s than salmon, 25 percent more fiber than flaxseed, 30 percent more antioxidants than blueberries, 2x more potassium than bananas, 70 percent more protein than soy beans, and 2x more calcium than milk.
- Satiety: Chia is a complete protein, which can help you feel more satisfied after a meal.
- Digestion: Chia has both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can aid in digestion.
- Plant Protein: Chia has more than 4g of vegetarian protein per ounce, and unlike flaxseed, chia does not have to be ground to reap its benefits.
- Hydration: Chia swells up to 12x its normal size in water, meaning you’ll reap the benefits of that additional water when you consume chia, which helps you stay hydrated longer.
These little seeds are incredible!

I had never tried chia seeds in anything before except in smoothies I made at home. I was excited to get to try Mamma Chia products for an honest review.
Vitality Snack Squeeze
The consistency was surprising for me at first. It was almost like drinking a smoothie that has little pieces of fruit in it. It wasn’t bad at all, just not what I was expecting. After the first one, I drank another they are that good. I was sent six different flavors. Green Magic, Wild Raspberry, Cherry Beet, Blackberry Bliss,
Mango Coconut, and Strawberry Banana.
Each flavor had a distinct taste. I love the sweet but not too sweet flavors and I appreciate the chia seed healthy factor. My favorite flavor was the Strawberry Banana, my husband’s was the Mango Coconut. There wasn’t a flavor we didn’t like. We were both surprised at how filling these are.
They are a great pick-me-up at the end of a long day, and they keep me feeling full when I’m not able to grab something to eat.
Chia Vitality Granola
Yummy! Crunchy, but not hard. This granola is by far the best you can buy. It’s mostly in small chunks which I liked. The wild blueberry was my favorite of the two. They are both very good as a snack, on yogurt, or in milk as a cereal. I was amazed at how fresh the blueberries tasted, yummy! The Vanilla Almond has a good vanilla taste. In milk it’s like dessert for breakfast. The chia seeds aren’t intrusive at all. I’m addicted to these things. So delicious, I will buy more!
I was also sent coupons for the Mamma Chia Beverages. I have not tried them yet but have no doubt I will enjoy them as much as the products above.
