NEED TO KNOW

Despite being one of the world’s oldest sources of food, only now are chia seeds having their moment. And what a moment it is – packed with protein, fibre and omega-3s, as well as many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they certainly deliver from a nutritional perspective.

HOW TO…

Sprinkle the seeds over your cereal, smoothies or salads, use them in a spiced nut and seed mix or try soaked chia breakfast pots with berries.

TOP TIP

These energy packed seeds have a very mild flavour meaning that you can add them to almost any dish and can reap their nutritional benefits without altering the taste of your meal.
