Used as an energy food for centuries, Chia has been rediscovered today as a “functional food” that can promote health or prevent disease. Chia seeds are considered to be one of nature’s richest vegetarian source of omega-3 and fibre. They are rich in antioxidants and contain 18 amino acids, three times more iron than spinach, six times more calcium than milk, and fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli!
The suggested daily intake of Chia seeds is 2 to 4 tablespoons. Enjoy them as a snack or incorporate into your daily meals in salads, cereal, baked goods, yogurt and smoothies.
