Chia seeds are an ancient South American superfood. Their very subtle, nutty taste allows you to add them to absolutely anything that you eat or drink – helping to boost your nutritional, antioxidant and Omega-3 intake.
• 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 1/3 cup of seeds to 2 cups of water, milk or non-dairy milk. Stir, leave for around 10 minutes or until it takes a gel-like consistency.
