Chia seeds are tiny (about 1mm diameter) brown and buff oval seeds with a mild flavour and good crunch.
They are a great source of a range of vitamins and minerals such as calcium, potassium, iron and sodium. Also, these seeds are a source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids which reduce inflammation in the body and benefit brain and heart health.
How to Use: Chia seeds are easily incorporated into your diet. The seeds do not have a particularly strong flavour, so you can add them to pretty much anything. They can be eaten raw, soaked in juice, added to porridges and puddings, or added to baked goods. You can also sprinkle them on top of cereal, yoghurt, vegetables or rice dishes. Adding chia seeds to recipes will dramatically boost the nutritional value.
