As the seed of a succulent desert plant native to Mexico, chia is an unprocessed, whole grain food that is easily absorbed by the body. The edible seed is bursting with antioxidants, healthy fibers, and quality proteins. Don’t be fooled by their tiny size, chia seeds are amongst the most nutritious foods in the world!
Why we love it:
- Mild, nutty flavour is a great addition to any dish
- Naturally filling
- Great source of energy
- Supports digestion and gut health
