Chia is a more sustainable agricultural choice for our Australian farmers being a bug-resistant arid crop producing seed even with limited water. It was so revered by the Aztecs as a source of supernatural energy and power that it was used as money!
Chia is an easy way to add healthy nutrition to your daily diet, with Vitamins A, B12 and C, complete protein (18 Amino Acids), minerals including potassium, phosphorous, folate, zinc, iron, and calcium as well as bowel-regulating soluble and insoluble fibre.
Sprinkle these flavourless seeds on salads, muesli, oatmeal, stirfrys, smoothies, muffin or bread batter, or cereal. Optional: use a spice/coffee grinder to make a fine meal-like consistency.
Chia Gel – Mix 1 tbsp with 1 cup of water, wait 10 minutes until it swells. Consume 1 tsp – can refrigerate up to 3 weeks in airtight container.
Chia Water – add 1 tsp into your 1 Litre water bottle – frogs eggs!

3. Why are there two colours of Chia?
Like many plants, there are different varieties (think lettuce, for example) with their own unique properties – 'cause that's nature! Almost all plants have colour variations if you think about it eg. red or yellow tomatoes, green or orange capsicums,etc,etc.
4. Can I take too much?
Some people with sluggish bowels find that initially Chia in amounts exceeding the serving suggestion can ‘bind them up' further – so always add any superfood SLOWLY to your diet !
