Chia seeds are tiny little oval shaped seeds that originate from Mexico.
They are taken from the plant Salvia Hispanica, part of the mint family and they can be black, brown, grey or white. They are hydrophilic and can absorb up to 12 times their volume of any liquid added to them.
They are packed full of fibre and omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, thiamine, niacin, magnesium, calcium, iron and a complete source of protein.
Legend has it that the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas used to carry chia seeds with them when out hunting or running as they only needed a spoonful to give them enough energy for the day.
Add them to smoothies, energy bars, raw wraps, chia ‘egg’ or chia pudding etc.
