Chia Seeds are a member of the Sage family (Salvia Hispanica). Found in South America they have been a staple food since the time of the Mayans and Aztecs. This Superfood has been referred to as 'Indian running food' because of the sustained energy boost that even a small quantity can provide. It has been claimed that one tablespoon can sustain an individual for 24 hours! But, mixed into food, they are ideal for complimenting the pre-match meal or before any exercise or exertion. Chia Seeds are ideal for athletes promoting endurance as well as increasing energy levels. 

With a mild and pleasant flavour, Chia Seeds are one of the most versatile superfoods. They can be added to sauces, bread, smoothies, yogurt, muesli or porridge, and pretty much any recipe sweet or savoury. They contain high levels of antioxidants which are commonly found in vegetables, fruit, wholegrain cereal, legumes and nuts and which if eaten daily, may help the body to fight infection and disease and promote good health. Chia seeds are also rich in essential fatty acid omega 3. 

Chia seeds are often used by dieters as their hydrophilic (water absorbtion) properties enable the consumer to feel fuller displacing calories and fat without comproimising on taste. Chia Seeds absorb at least 9 times their weight in water in under ten minutes, plus they contain high levels of nutrients much needed when on a restricted diet.
