Chia seeds come from a flowering plant in the mint family that’s native to Mexico and Guatemala, and history suggests it was a very important food crop for the Aztecs and Mayans. Aztec warriors used Chia as their main source of fuel during conquests, medicinally, they also used it to relieve joint pain and sore skin and to stimulate saliva flow.

The little seed — which comes in either white or a dark brown and black colour — also has a huge nutritional profile. It contains calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. It is rich in protein, fibre (soluble and insoluble) and antioxidants. As an added benefit, chia seeds can be eaten whole or milled, unlike flax seeds which have to be ground before consumption in order to access their health benefits.

Chia seeds are very versatile, you use them in so many ways, you can add them to soups, salads, porridge, juices, smoothies, fruit salad, use as an egg replacement in cooking, you can even use them in baking, to be honestly the list is endless.

Make sure to keep hydrated when eating chia seeds as they absorb 8-10 times their weight in water.
