What is this?
USDA organically grown chia seeds.
Chia is a mild-tasting, gluten-free and versatile wholefood and a great addition to the family diet.
Sprinkle over breakfast cereal, salads or yoghurt, incorporate into smoothies, juices, soups, home baking, puddings and paleo breads. To use as an egg replacement in baking simply combine 1 tablespoon chia seeds with 3 tablespoons cold water to form a gel.
What is so special with this?
Modern science has discovered that chia seeds contain a powerful combination of high grade omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fibre and numerous vitamins and minerals to help nourish your body from within.
Chia seed, grown in its natural environment in the fertile plains of Central and South America, has an amazingly high nutritional profile and is one of the greatest superfoods known to man.
- High Fibre
- Vitamins & minerals
Chia seeds contain amazingly high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which are greatly lacking in the typical western diet. In fact, over half of the fatty acids found in chia are omega-3, making it one of the richest known plant sources. Chia is also a source of protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, vitamin B1, niacin and zinc.
They are also high in soluble fibre and are extremely hydrophilic meaning that they attract and absorb water very well. This makes chia a great, sustaining food choice as they provide a feeling of fullness long after you have consumed them, keeping you satisfied and energised throughout the day.
