Description

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.
