CHIA SEED

Description

Long before chia seed was popularised as superfood by modern society, it was actually a staple in ancient Mayans and Aztecs diet for energy fuel. Despite their tiny and unassuming look, chia seed is one of the best plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fibre, antioxidants, calcium, and magnesium. Mild tasting with a slight crunch - they can be made into pudding, blended into smoothies, and even incorporated into baked goods for added texture! From strengthening immune system to reducing chronic inflammation, they pack a powerful nutritional punch and is proof that ‘’good things come in small packages’’.
