Chia Bia 100% Natural Whole Chia Seeds


An ancient food enjoyed by the Aztecs thousands of years in the past, the humble little chia seed is proof that good things really do come in small packages.


All natural with no fortification necessary, Chia Bia whole black chia seeds are full to bursting with plant based protein, omega 3 fatty acids, iron, calcium, selenium and zinc. That is a whole lot of goodness for something so tiny.


An easy add-in to your daily diet, chia seeds can be enjoyed in so many ways with no time-consuming preparation required and no need to build an entire meal around them.


Adding chia seeds to overnight oats, sprinkling them on granola and putting chia seeds in smoothies are all great ways to enjoy the seeds many dietary benefits.


Why are chia seeds good for you?


There is 3.2g of protein and just 69 kcal in a 15g serving of chia seeds.


Chia seeds’ protein levels make them an ideal supplement for vegans, helping them to consume a good amount of protein without animal products. Chia contain a generous amount of polyunsaturated ‘good’ fats too.


These seeds are also high in omega 3 fatty acids, usually found in abundant amounts in fish and seafood. Essential for our health, this ALA, or alpha linolenic acid, has wide ranging benefits for both our bodies and our brains.


The 5g of dietary fibre present in every 15g of chia seeds meanwhile, not only helps you to feel fuller for longer, great news if you are dieting, it also supports intestinal health, keeping things comfortable in the bathroom department.


Are all those stats not enough to have you reaching for a handful of chia? Well, that 15g serving also includes 50% or more of your recommended daily intake of calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium.


It can also provide you with 100% of your recommended intake of selenium, vital for metabolism and thyroid health, and 25% of your recommended intake of folic acid.


What is the best way to eat chia seeds?


You could simply scoop a handful of chia straight in and crunch it down but, we will be honest, there are much better ways to enjoy this versatile seed.


With a similar texture to poppy seeds and a mildly nutty flavour, chia seeds are great sprinkled over porridge or salads but best added to a recipe to be enjoyed later on.


Why? Because soaked chia seeds do a miraculous job of taking in the flavour of the food or beverage they have been added to. Overnight oats and smoothies are popular chia seed breakfast choices for because their addition does not take away from other ingredients, letting you enjoy the full flavour of your favourite fruit, honey or nut milk.


Added to liquids, chia seeds will plump up to several times their original size and develop a pleasantly gelatinous texture that can thicken the milk of your choice (try coconut, you won’t regret it) into a pudding.


Chuck in cacao, blueberries or syrup and allow to set for a creamy, indulgent dessert that tastes fantastic.

FAQs

What are chia seeds?

Chia seeds are tiny, edible seeds, which come from the plant Salvia Hispanica.  

They are black in colour and can be traced right back to ancient times, when they were eaten by the Aztec and the Mayan civilisations because of their energy providing properties. 

Chia seeds have become increasingly popular as a health food in recent years.

How should I eat chia seeds?

Chia seeds are very versatile – probably because they are so small!  

You can sprinkle them onto overnight oats, for a chia seed breakfast, add them to salads, pop chia seeds in smoothies or soups or add to home baking recipes.  

You may also want to try making chia pudding with them, for a healthy snack which can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. Simply soak the black chia seeds in a plant-based milk for a couple of hours or overnight. 

Then add a sweetener of your choice – such as honey, maple syrup or simply fruit – to the soaked chia seeds and enjoy. Delicious.

Chia seeds are abundant in vitamins and minerals. They contain iron, calcium, zinc magnesium and selenium as well as folic acid.

Are chia seeds high in fibre?

If you are looking to add a little more fibre to your diet, then look no further than chia seeds – 28g of chia seeds contains 11g of fibre.  

Fibre helps you to maintain a normal digestive system, as well as keeping you feeling fuller for longer.  

A diet high in fibre is also good for weight management, as it will help to stop you reaching for the snack cupboard in between meals and keep you from overeating, when it comes to mealtimes. 

Chia seeds also contain antioxidants. Antioxidants help to protect the cells from oxidative stress, which is the damage caused by free radicals. Left unchecked, this damage can eventually lead to illness or disease.
