Chia seeds are one of the most powerful, functional, and nutritious superfoods in the world. Whole Chia Seeds are excellent source of fibre (32g per 100g), packed with antioxidants, full of protein, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and the richest known plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds also have high levels of calcium, manganese and phosphorus. They provide an excellent non-animal source of protein and are thought to help regulate appetite, sleep and improve mood.
How to eat your Whole Chia Seeds
Simply sprinkle some over your morning cereal for a great boost to start the day! Why not read about all of the amazing things that milled chia seeds can do in the Winter/Spring (2015) edition of our Grapevine magazine.
If you like to use ground chia seeds rather than their whole counterparts, you can always grind them yourself before using them in recipes. A good way is to fill a clean and empty hand-held pepper mill with whole chia seeds, and then twist the mill to grind the seeds – the same way you would grind pepper.
