Chia is the Mayan word for strength. The seeds were used by these ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures as mega-energy food, by their running messengers, who would carry a small pouch with them for sustenance.

What are Chia seeds? 

Chia seed is a wholegrain food because it contains all components of the grain; the Bran, Germ and Endosperm. Research also shows that eating wholegrain foods can help lower the risk of being overweight and lower the risk of diet related disease such as diabetes and heart disease.

Chia is a great natural source of complete protein (20% protein in each serve) with all 8 essential amino acids. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissue, hair and nails and must draw it from the diet as protein isn’t stored in the body.

Chia seed has much in common with Flaxseed however the distinct advantage is that Chia’s natural antioxidants make them stable whereas flax quickly becomes rancid.

Sprinkle Chia Seeds raw on your foods as a nutrition booster.  Add to breakfast cereals, salads and baking.  When mixed with water, Chia seeds swell and form mucilage, a gel that can be added to smoothies, juices, soups, sauces and well pretty much anything.

Awesome product Review by

I have been taken these chia seeds for a couple of years now each morning on my cereal. For me, this product does all that it promotes - I feel fuller for longer, I have more energy and I am more regular. Its quick and easy to use, no mixing it with this or that and on busy mornings you know you are getting the goodness to help you with a busy day. A product I would definately recommend to all.
