The Mayan word for strength is ‘chia’ and that is what they bring to your body… It’s ability to provide sustained energy throughout the day made it a popular commodity among the Aztecs for some 400 years before it recently exploded in popularity in Western cultures.

Chia seeds are the seeds of the salvia Hispanic plant, a flowering plant in the mint family, which is native to Central America. Grown in the mystical area, known as the land of the ‘eternal spring’ graced with fertile volcanic peaks and mineral rich water from the surrounding mountain aquifiers. This unique growing area offers an opportunity to produce a remarkably high antioxidant seed rich in dietary fibre, protein and Omega 3’s.

Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fibre, protein, Omega 3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.

Nutritional Benefits:

A 1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains:

  • Fibre:11 grams.
  • Protein:4 grams.
  • Fat:9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
  • Calcium:18% of the RDA.
  • Manganese:30% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium:30% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus:27% of the RDA.
  • They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.

This is particularly impressive when you consider that this is just a single ounce, which supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate!

Just so that we’re all on the same page, 1 ounce equals 28 grams, or about 2 tablespoons.

Interestingly… if you subtract the fibre, which may not end up as usable calories for the body, chia seeds only contain 101 calories per ounce.

This makes them one of the world’s best sources of several important nutrients, calorie for calorie.

To top things off, chia seeds are a “whole grain” food, are usually grown organically, are non-GMO and naturally free of gluten.

How to use:

Chia seeds are incredibly easy to incorporate into your diet. The seeds themselves taste rather bland, so you can add them to pretty much anything.

They can be eaten raw, soaked in juice, added to porridges and puddings, or added to baked goods. You can also sprinkle them on top of cereal, yogurt, vegetables or rice dishes.

Because of their ability to absorb both water and fat, they can be used to thicken sauces and even used as egg substitutes in recipes. They can also be mixed with water and turned into a gel.
