Ancient food of the Aztecs
Small but mighty, the humble chia seed proves that good things do come in small packages! They’re full of high-quality plant-based protein, omega-3, iron, calcium, selenium and zinc – and its all natural, no fortification in sight.
What are the benefits of chia seeds?
Chia seeds are full of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids: chia seeds provide you with the essential omega-3 ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid), which is beneficial if you don’t eat fish or are vegetarian.
