RAW Health Organic & Raw Chia Seeds: A tiny seed with bountiful health benefits
Chia seeds have officially taken the health food sector by storm and no surprise when more and more benefits of the tiny seeds are being discovered each week. Online supermarket delivery service Ocado has responded to demands for the super seed with a new listing of RAW Health Organic & Raw Chia Seeds – available from June.
In actual fact the health benefits of chia seeds have simply been rediscovered; the Aztec civilisations were already aware of the energy and stamina providing properties of chia seeds – it was believed that a single teaspoon would sustain a soldier for an entire day.
Today they have been heralded as a rich source of essential Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, in an optimum ratio of 3:1, as well as antioxidants, calcium and soluble fibre. What’s more, the neutral taste of chia seeds makes them hugely versatile as a baking ingredient, cereal topping or nutrient-boost for smoothies. This winning formula of versatility, impressive nutrient credentials and subtle flavour helps explain the recent foodie frenzy for these seeds.
RAW Health Organic & Raw Chia Seeds 450g RRP £7.89
Available from all good independent health food shops and online from Ocado as of June 2012.
