Rich in fibre and omega-3 fats, and a good source of protein, calcium and magnesium, chia is known to improve skin health, boost energy levels and promote bone strength - among a range of other impressive health benefits.

Chia doesn’t really have a ‘taste’, but forms a gel-like consistency when mixed with water. Add to breakfasts or smoothies, mix into savoury breads and other baked foods, or simply sprinkle over your main meals.
