Description
Chia means strength in Mayan and has over 3000 years of history as an ancient revered crop. The Aztecs considered Chia to be more valuable than gold! Exceptional Nutritional Value
Chia is a near complete food, providing essential protein, fats and carbohydrates as well as a wide array of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.
High in Omega-3 oils
Chia is one of the highest plant based Omega 3 sources, outperforming flax seed.
Anti-inflammatory properties
The excellent ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 of 3:2 makes it a great anti-inflammatory food.
Soothes the digestive system and stabilises blood sugar
The soluble fibre rich gel in Chia soothes the digestive system and slows the release of sugars into the bloodstream stabilising blood sugar levels.
Excellent food for endurance and fitness
The combination of essentail fats, fibre and protein make Chia an excellent food for improving endurance and fitness. It also has the ability to keep the body hydrated and electrolytes balanced.
Potent anti-oxidant
The potent antioxidants in Chia naturally preserve the ensitive Omega 3 oils and provide anti-aging benefits. How to use Chia seeds
The taste of Chia is very mild and pleasant and can be easily combined with other foods without changing the taste dramatically. Chia can be added to recipes to provide more bulk and nutritional density.
The most common way to eat Chia is to first soak the seeds. They rapidly absorb a large amount of liquid, between 9 - 12 times their volume, in under 10 minutes. Chia can be used as a gel or in its whole seed form.
Add it to smoothies, mix it with salad dressings, puddings or sauces or simply eat it by the spoonful.
