Cucina & Amore Chia Oil is cold-pressed from 100% pure Chia Seed, cultivated with passion and care in South America. Grown by regenerative agriculture, chia is one of the most sustainably grown crops in the world. Chia is the most abundant source of plant omega-3 fat in nature and chia oil provides an excellent source of this essential nutrient. In addition to the omega-3 (called ALA—alpha linolenic acid), chia oil is high in phytochemicals (plant nutrients) with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.. Chia oil has a very high smoke point (410 degrees F) so can be used for cooking and baking, and is delicate enough to be used from the bottle to drizzle into soups, on grains, make tasty salad dressings, marinades, sauces, pestos and more. Chia oil has a nutty, earthy flavor that adds character but doesn’t overpower your food—adding a note of appealing flavor and complementing other ingredients. It has a silky and pleasing mouthfeel. Chia oil can also be blended with other oils you enjoy like Cucina & Amore extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil.
