Cheers to the chia seed! Chia seeds are the newest and oldest super food to hit shelves around the world. An ancient food originally cultivated by the Aztecs in pre-Columbian South America, our chia seeds are brought directly from Bolivia under carefully controlled conditions. These little seeds are available in white or black, although nutritionally there is little difference between the two! They are crisp and shiny with a mild flavor.

Chia Seeds can be a great boost to your diet and your health. The seeds are an excellent source of fibre, which helps maintain digestive health, and with their high level of protein, they keep you feeling full for longer. Particularly useful for those on weight loss regimes! Chia Seeds are one of the richest plant sources of essential omega-3 fats containing 3 times more than salmon! Providing a positive anti-inflammatory effect in the body, omega-3 fats have been shown to benefit heart and joint health. Chia Seeds also contain other favourable antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including five times more calcium than milk, seven times more Vitamin C than oranges, three times more iron than spinach! They also have more antioxidants than blueberries!
- + How to use
Chia Seeds have almost limitless uses. They can be added almost invisibly to any meal containing liquid or sauces, such as soups, casseroles, stir-fries and smoothies. The seeds add a nice crunch to dry dishes or when baked into bread and muffins. Chia Seeds can also be mixed with cold water to create a slightly thickened gel, an excellent textural addition to gluten-free dishes and great to replace eggs. With its pleasant taste, you’ll find it easy to add this nutritionally outstanding little seed to your diet.
