200g Organic Chia Seeds

Chia seed (whose appearance resembles that of a poppy seed) is a tiny nutritional powerhouse. Available in black and white varieties, Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are the highest known plant source of Omega-3, containing eight times more than salmon! Unlike other sources (eg. flaxseed or fish oil), Chia provides a highly stable and absorbable form of this important essential fatty acid due to its powerful naturally occurring antioxidants. It is incredibly versatile in both cooked and raw dishes and expands up to twelve times in size when left to congeal in liquid.

Product Description

These chia seeds come from south central Mexico where the high altitude, climate and soil quality is optimal for growing the highest quality seed. This area is well known for its fertile volcanic peaks and mineral rich water from the surrounding mountain aquifers. These environmental factors produce a remarkable seed that is high in antioxidants, and rich in dietary fibre, protein and Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

The seed is very low in sodium and, due to its high antioxidant profile, can be stored for years, unlike other seeds and grains which may easily go rancid. The gel forming solubale fibre properties in chia seeds allow for slowed digestion and sustain balanced blood sugar levels.

Health Benefits

Chia seeds are highly nutritious & a natural source of:

Essential Fatty Acids – Omegas 3 & 6
Fibre – both soluble & insoluble
Antioxidants
Protein & Amino Acids – containing all eight essential amino acids & more
Essential Minerals - calcium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, and potassium
Vitamins A, B & E

Chia is naturally gluten free. It provides energy, strength, and aids in endurance. It also promotes blood sugar level regulation, weight loss and intestinal regularity.

How To Use

Sprinkle these flavourless seeds on salads, muesli, oatmeal, stirfrys, smoothies, muffin or bread batter, or cereal.
Optional: use a spice/coffee grinder to create a fine meal-like consistency (easier to blend in smoothies/juices).

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons in a cup of water or your favorite beverage, stir briskly and allow to sit overnight or for 15 minutes to use as a thickener or substitute for eggs in cooking, baking and many recipes.
