Mamma Chia Rolls Out Chia Squeeze Vitality Snack

Four flavors available in on-the-go pouch

BONSALL, Calif. -- Mamma Chia, a leading organic food and beverage company in the chia beverage category, has developed the Chia Squeeze vitality snack. Chia Squeeze provides a new way to enjoy the benefits of chia seeds, combining them with fruits and vegetables for a 70-calorie, no-sugar-added snack in an on-the-go squeeze pouch.

"With our original Mamma Chia vitality beverages, we created an entirely new drinking and nutritional experience in a bottle," said company founder and CEO Janie Hoffman. "Our Mamma Chia community asked us to create even more ways to enjoy this powerhouse seed, and our Chia Squeeze is an exciting new way to squeeze natural vitality and nutrients into your day."

Available in four flavors--Apple Cinnamon, Blackberry Bliss, Strawberry Banana and Green Magic--Chia Squeeze is USDA-certified organic, non-GMO verified, vegan and gluten-free, with 1,200 mg of essential Omega-3, as well as complete protein and fiber.

Each 3.5 oz. Chia Squeeze pouch is lightweight for easily carrying in a backpack, lunchbox, purse, briefcase or gym bag, and does not need refrigeration.

Known for their nutritional benefits, chia seeds offer a complete nutritional profile of Omega-3, balanced dietary fiber, complete protein, antioxidants and minerals.

"By expanding into new categories, Mamma Chia is furthering our commitment to offer the highest quality organic chia-based foods and beverages," said Hoffman. "Innovation is the lifeblood of Mamma Chia, and we love creating new ways to bring chia seeds to active souls of all ages, in convenient, delicious and ready-to-go varieties."

Since launching the original Mamma Chia vitally beverage line nationally in fall 2011 as what it said is the first-to-market chia seed beverage, Mamma Chia has grown to offer nine flavors.
