Chia is the richest plant based source of Omega 3, dietary fibre, protein and antioxidants and is an excellent whole food source. A major staple in the diets of the Aztecs and Mayans, chia was carried on long journeys by Aztec warriors and used to enhance their strength and endurance. It contains essential minerals, phosphorous, manganese, calcium, potassium, sodium and offers innumerable health benefits as well as enhancing youthful appearance through promotion of cell regeneration, meaning beautiful skin, hair & nails! It is also recommended for pregnant women and growing infants. With little flavour of its own, chia can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes, giving enhanced texture while being filling yet easily digested.
