A superfood, chia seeds are a smart way to boost the omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, protein, calcium and antioxidants in your diet.
Chia seeds are tiny (about 1mm diameter) brown and buff oval seeds with a mild flavour and good crunch. Chia seeds are also unprocessed, which means they are a wholegrain food.
Sprinkle on cereal, vegetables and rice dishes; add to cakes, breads and biscuits, and mix into smoothies.
Chia is the Mayan word for ‘strength’.
