  • The Story:
    Chia, the seed of South American herb Salvia hispanica, has been hailed as a highly valuable food for many centuries. It is believed to have been one of the staples of the Aztec diet, and today remains a core part of local cuisine in its native growing areas in South America.

    The signature offering of Chia seed is large quantities of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, in a ratio believed by science to be dietarily optimum. There are many modern foods that contain Omega oils, but many of these give them in a ratio skewed in favour of Omega-6.

    Chia also provides useful proteins, vitamins and minerals. Chia contains Vitamins A, B1,2,3,6 and 8, plus E. In addition, it features Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous and Zinc. Chia is an ancient and natural food, a useful supplement to diets constrained by the rigours of modern life.
