Organic Chia Seeds, 1kg (Soaring Free Superfoods)


Chia means strength in Mayan and has over 3 000 years of history as a revered crop. Used by messengers who needed to cover ground swiftly, chia seeds were known as ‘the runner’s food’. This seed has a spectacular nutritional profile making it a near-complete food, and is said to provide high levels of energy, protein and dietary fibre and have very high levels of omega 3 fatty acids.

Directions to use: The taste of Chia is very mild and pleasant and can be easily combined with other foods without changing the taste dramatically. Chai can be added to recipes to provide more bulk and nutritional density. The most common way to eat Chai 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.
