Chia Seeds

36 products

Chia seeds are derived from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family.

 

Chia seeds were an important food for the Aztecs and Mayans, who prized them for their ability to provide sustainable energy. "chia" is the ancient Mayan word for "strength." Despite their ancient history as a dietary staple, only recently did chia seeds become recognized as a modern-day superfood.

 

In the past few years, they have exploded in popularity and are now consumed by health-conscious people all over the world.

 

Chia seeds have a mild, nutty flavour making them easy to add to foods and beverages. They can come as black chia or white chia or as a mix. These versatile seeds can be eaten raw or added to cereal, sauces, vegetables, rice dishes, or yogurt or mixed into drinks, smoothies and baked goods. They can also be mixed with water and made into a gel. Chia can also available as a chia flour (chia powder), chia seed oil or as a chia supplement. Chia seeds are packed full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids.

 

They have an unusually high content (18%) of omega-3 fatty acids – essential fats that are important for heart health and brain function. More than half of the chia seeds fat content is alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which is the plant form of omega-3.

 

They have outstanding fibre content higher than that of flaxseeds (linseed) or sesame seeds and working out to be around 10g in two tablespoons. Being high in dietary fibre, chia seeds benefits digestion, bowel regularity and healthy stool. When consumed, chia seeds create a gel-like substance in the stomach. This gel-forming action is due to the soluble fibre in chia seeds, and it can work as a prebiotic that supports the growth of probiotics in the gut. 

 

The rich fibre content in chia seeds also helps people feel full quicker because it absorbs a considerable amount of water and immediately expands in the stomach when eaten. This may explain why clinical studies have proved that chia curbs hunger and suppresses appetite, which can also lead to weight loss.

 

They are also an excellent source of protein and extremely high in calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and are gluten free.

 

Why not try adding this powerful, nutritionally packed little super seed to your diet.
