obsessed. get yourself some.


What is Chia?

Chia Plant
  • Chia is Nature's Complete Superfood.
  • Chia is the highest plant based source of Omega 3, dietary fibre and protein.
  • Chia is a great tasting seed that is easy to include in the daily diet for improved health.
  • Chia seeds were first used as food as early as 3500 BC and were one of the main dietary components of the Aztecs and the Mayans.
Chia is a fantastic way to enhance your daily diet with a bonus nutritious boost. Chia has a pleasant mild nutty taste and can be added to any food or beverage without altering the original flavour.

We recommand a daily serve of 15 grams which is the equivalent of 1 level tablespoon.
Chia can be sprinkled over salads, cereals and muesli or incorporated into breads, muffins, slices, cookies or porridge.

Why not try Chia as a gel? When mixed with water (ratio - 1 tablespoon of Chia to 1 cup of water), Chia seed forms a unique nourishing gel that can be added to smoothies, juices, breakfast shakes, herbal teas, yogurts, soups, salad dressing or sauces.



i honestly love this stuff.
incredibly mild flavour so you can hardly taste it..
making it more versatile. i sprinkle it on top of
oats, my brekky toast, add it to my smoothies,
sprinkle it in stir fries... possibilities are endless.
get some from woolies or coles, they're affordable too :)
