Frequently Asked Questions

Chia Smash is a superfood fruit spread made with only real ingredients - berries, chia seeds, dates and lemon. It contains no added sugar, and is instead sweetened naturally with berries and dates.

Each jar is packed with 75%+ fruit, so you get the punchy, natural flavor of the fruit coming through. The dates add a touch of sweetness and a subtle date flavor, which nicely rounds out the tartness of the fruit (if I may say so myself). You can expect a much less sweet product than regular jams.

Chia seeds provide the gel and replace pectin in regular jam. You’ll see chia seeds interspersed with the seeds of berries, but they have a neutral flavor. 

Texture-wise, Chia Smash is slightly thinner than regular jam with a very mix-able consistency. This makes it great to swirl through yogurts, oatmeal and smoothies, drizzle onto pancakes and waffles and much more! 

We like to say that we’re more than just the partner to your peanut butter. Top your oatmeal, toast, granola, yogurts, pancakes and waffles, add to smoothies, pair with cheese, create savory sauces & dressings, get baking and much more! Check out our recipes for inspiration!

Chia seeds provide the gel to our ‘jam’ without adding sugar or pectin, and are conveniently a great source of omega 3s, protein and fiber. To provide a little sweetness we instead use date syrup. Date syrup is a low glycemic sweetener made from 100% dates, which are packed with important nutrients and minerals, including fiber, potassium, and magnesium. 

For those who follow a keto or paleo diet, Chia Smash is keto and paleo friendly.

Unopened, Chia Smash has a shelf life of 1.5 years, and you’ll find the best by date on the bottom of the jar. Once you open your jar, you’ll need to place it in the refrigerator and we recommend consuming it within 8 weeks. 

Because we don’t use sugar or added preservatives, Chia Smash doesn’t last as long as regular jams. Some tips to help it last as long as possible are to always use a clean utensil, and no double dipping if you’re spooning it straight to your mouth (no judgment on that!)

Once opened, Chia Smash must be refrigerated. We recommend always consuming chilled for the best texture, so if you’ve got room in your fridge, pop them straight in once you’re home!
