The beauty of them is that they are so small and subtle tasting, you can easily add them to any meal to boost nutrition.
A fantastic little seed to fuel your day!
The seeds are harvested from the Salvia hispanica plant that grows close to the equator where they get their optimal growing condition.
Chia seeds have a soft shell so there’s no need to grind them, your body can easily absorb and benefit from the nutrients within.
But you can mill them using a cold-milling process so that no nutrients are lost.
Some people prefer the powdered texture of the milled seeds and they are a great way to hide extra nutrition in kids’ meals – think smoothies, yogurts, baking.
Just add Chia to your favorite foods or drinks and enjoy as part of a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
