what is harmony® halvia?

Halvia is a name we specially came up with to label our high quality, premium-grade chia seeds. They are a result of our undeniable love and meticulous effort to produce clean, fresh and safe-to-eat chia seeds for everybody, including us.

After multiple stages of careful and precise cleaning, we guarantee that they are 99.99% impurity-free, fresh and safe to eat.

how is harmony® halvia different from other chia seeds?

We dare to call our Halvia the cleanest chia seeds ever, quite different from other chia seeds you can find in the market.

To begin with, we are very particular on our sources. By comparing seeds from growers all around the world annually, we secure the best grower based on the harvest on that particular year and hence, we are able to ensure that our Halvia comprises only potent, bioactive and highly nutritious chia seeds.

With our dual-stage cleaning process, Halvia boasts a purity level of 99.99% with the absence of contaminants and impurities such as insects, larvae, twigs, leaves and dust. They are meticulously and vigorously cleaned through careful stages of mechanical screening, winnowing and optical grading, all specially designed by our nutritionists throughout the years of handling chia seeds.

We believe that we are one of the very few manufacturers that handled the seeds in-house, in Malaysia. Unlike many others, our chia seeds are handled in our safe and sterile production area equipped with state-of-the-art machines. We have a team of well-trained and practiced professionals, fully clad in clean and lab-appropriate attire, to inspect the entire process of cleaning.

Producing clean, ready-to-eat and nutrient-rich chia seeds, in reality, involves a really long and tedious work behind, something that we never slack on. That is why we dare say Halvia is different; definitely more than just repacking into bags. You can trust us on that.

what is the origin of harmony® halvia?

You can bet on how selective and particular we are on our sources.

The raw chia seeds selected for Halvia are grown in high lands that boast really excellent growing conditions. With over 2,000 metres of altitude and extreme surrounding temperatures, the lands are blessed with exceptionally fertile soil and mineral rich water; promising a definite batch of potent, bioactive and nutrient rich seeds in return.

how should i store harmony® halvia?

Nothing beats fresh, fragrant and contaminant-free chia seeds. We highly advise not to be negligence when it comes to storing Halvia, especially the refill pack of 1 kilogram.

Box of 16 x 15 grams:

Storage is pretty easy as the seeds are all sealed within durable individual sachets. We recommended storing the box in any cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Should you feel that the box might consume too much of your space, you can always opt for storing the sachets without it as long as it stored in the recommended area.

Bottle of 300 grams:

The seeds are stored inside a FDA approved, BPA-free and UV tolerant bottle protected by dual lids, outer and inner, for freshness and purity purposes. We strongly advice to always secure the inner lid before the outer lid, after every consumption to prevent contamination. It is wise to bear in mind that only clean and dry spoon should be used for extracting the seeds. We do not recommend storing a spoon inside the bottle of chia seeds, as it might risk contamination. Store the bottle in any cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Refill pack of 1 kilogram:

Storing require a little more attention compared to the other forms of packaging for Halvia. A completely dry and air-tight sealed container is the best way to store the seeds. Typically, we would suggest brushing a wet piece of cloth over the surface of the tightly sealed bag to neutralise static electricity, before opening the bag. It is advisable to always keep the container sealed tight, and to use only clean and dry spoon for extraction. Similarly, we do not recommend storing a spoon inside the bottle of chia seeds, as it might risk contamination. Store the container in any cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight.

do i have to wash or cook harmony® halvia before consumption?

Not at all. Halvia is ready to be eaten raw, as it is.

In fact, we would never encourage cooking Halvia as you risk destroying the nutrients of the seeds with extreme heat. Halvia is guaranteed to be 99.99% free from impurities, so washing is not at all necessary.

can i add harmony® halvia into cooked foods or baked goods?

Yes, you most certainly can.

But we advise to add them after the food is off the stove or oven. However, adding Halvia into your dough or batter prior to baking them is a very common practice. Many would worry about the loss of nutrients through heating, but indirect heating such as baking is considerably safe.

can i presoak harmony® halvia?

Yes, definitely.

It is always a good idea to allow the seeds gel up prior to eating them. Soaking Halvia in your favourite juice, milk, water or any liquid for a couple of minutes before consumption can maximise its nutritional profile.

However, you might need to be extra cautious when it comes soaking them, as there are risks of contamination. Soaking the seeds in a clean and sealed container would be better than exposing them, especially at room temperature. Though Halvia is consumed best when it is freshly soaked, you can always store the sealed container of soaked seeds inside the fridge to retain the freshness. You can store them inside the fridge for up to seven days.

is it possible to consume too much of harmony® halvia?

Though we sincerely think that it is quite impossible for someone to consume too much of Halvia due to the satiety it gives, there will not be any life-threatening or aggressive side effects.

However, do note that if you are taking any medications, it is highly advisable to consult your doctor prior to cosuming Halvia regularly.

why is harmony® halvia priced slightly higher?

We cannot deny that our price is not the lowest in the market, but we can guarantee that our price is one of the fairest, judging on how Halvia is cleaned, treated and packed.

Learn about how we differ from the rest.

Our persistence in importing the chia seeds directly from growers eliminates any unnecessary costs, ensuring us to control our price fairly. No hidden costs, no exploitation. Every dime you spent goes to the fundamental necessities; nothing extra.

are basil seeds (biji selasih) and harmony® halvia the same?

Though the two seeds are from the same family, they are however, two different seeds with many significant differences in various aspects.
