Chia is Gluten Free and was cultivated by the Aztecs in pre-Columbian times.

Chia contains higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids than flax-seeds, yielding 25-30% extractable oil, mostly α-linolenic acid (ALA).  Chia seeds typically contain 20% protein, 34% oil, 25% dietary fiber (mostly soluble with high molecular weight), and significant levels of antioxidants (chlorogenic and caffeic acids, myricetinquercetin, and kaempferol flavonols). The oil from chia seeds contains a very high concentration of omega-3 fatty acid — approximately 64%. Chia seeds contain no gluten and trace levels of sodium. Chia is also is a source of antioxidants and a variety of amino acids. For all these health related benefits, chia is in the process of application before the EU authorities to be considered as a novel food.

Two tablespoons of chia – about 25 grams – provide about seven grams of fibre. This dose also includes calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, copper, niacin, and zinc.

Taste-wise, chia seeds have a nutty flavour, and are a healthful addition to the diet sprinkled on cereals, yogurt or salads. You can also eat them whole or mix them into flour when baking bread, muffins or other baked goods.  Another easy way to enjoy the benefits of Chia is to soak them in water, which turns jelly like, then you can add to smoothies or juices.

Known as the running food, its use as a high energy endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs. It was said the Aztec warriors subsisted on chia seed during the conquests. The Indians of the south west would eat as little as a teaspoon full when going on a 24 hour forced march. Indians running from the Colorado River to the California coast to trade turquoise for seashells would only bring the Chia seed for their nourishment.

“Since I use a lot of Chia, it was great to find somewhere to get a kilo lot at a great price! Thanks NOL.” – M Gibson, Cambridge

“I drop prunes into Chia seeds and eat them like this. Yummy!” – M Morris, Botany
