A nutritional super-seed…

Chia Seeds are an ancient South American superfood. Their very subtle taste allows you to add them to absolutely anything that you eat or drink – helping to boost your nutritional, antioxidant and Omega-3 intake.

Check out the nutritional benefits:

  • Rich in Omega-3 (higher levels than salmon)
  • High in Protein (more than any other ancient grain)
  • High in Iron (3 times more than spinach)
  • A powerful source of antioxidants (30% more potency than blueberries)
  • High in Fibre (2 tbsp equivalent to 5 pieces of wholewheat bread)

How to use…

Drink: Add a teaspoon of Chia Seeds to a glass of water or juice, before drinking.

Sprinkle: Sprinkle Chia Seeds on salads, cereals, yogurt, even soup. Or add a sprinkling in your baking – great in bread, cakes, cookies and biscuits.

Soak: A common way to consume Chia Seeds is to soak them. Make basic Chia ‘gel’ by adding 60g (1/3 cup) of seeds to 480g (2 cups) of water, milk or non-dairy milk. Stir, leave for around 10 minutes or until it takes a gel-like consistency.
