Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Last weekend at the Natural Product Expo West in Anaheim, everyone was buzzing about the chia seed. Though small in stature, the chia seeds offers a big boost of fiber, protein, and anti-inflammatory fatty acids, omega-3s. On their own, the seeds can taste a little bland, but the creative ways each of these products uses chia makes them worth the purchase. Mamma Chia Squeeze Mamma Chia was a pioneer in producing flavorful chia-filled products. The bottled beverages are a tried-and-true staple in natural-food stores, but the Chia Squeeze made its public debut at the expo. These tiny pouches offer fruit, veggies, spices, and, of course, chia. At only 70 calories per serving with no added sugar, they're perfectly for anyone on the go looking for a little boost. NY Superfoods Chia Peanut Butter After tasting spoonful upon spoonful of natural peanut butter with an unpleasant aftertaste and mouthfeel, I fell hard for New York Superfoods Manhattan Mud ($8 per jar). This smooth peanut butter, powered with chia strength, offered the perfect balance of chia crunch and chocolate goodness. New York Superfoods Manhattan Mud $8 from nysuperfoods.com Buy Now Bona Chia Pasta I searched high and low for the Al Dente table, and its Bona Chia Spinach Fettucine ($3) was well worth the trek. This fiber-filled pasta sneaks ground chia into the mix, so those who don't like the texture of the seeds alone can now enjoy the benefits of chia.

There were a handful of flavors to try, but I was partial to the "BMeyer" Lemon and Strawberry Citrus varieties. Refreshing, delicious, and easy to chug, this chia libation stood out from the pack.

There were a number of fruity flavors like mango and banana, but I fell hard for the vanilla bean pod. While these aren't available in stores (yet), The Chia Company currently offers portable single-serving Chia Shots ($7 for 10) that can easily be sprinkled on yogurt, salads, or soup.
