With a neutral to slightly nutty flavour, easy storage and excellent shelf life, chia seeds are extremely versatile.

Chia seeds – A nutritional superhero

Chia seeds are originally from Southern Mexico and Northern Guatemala and were used by the ancient Aztecs and Mayas in preparation of folk medicines and food. Chia seeds are small, oval shaped and while they may range in colour from black, grey, or black spotted to grey, their nutritional values are very similar. In recent years chia seeds have been widely recognised as a superfood due to their impressive nutritional properties and medical values. Chia seeds offer many potential health benefits as they are a rich source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibre, proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. With a neutral to slightly nutty flavour, easy storage and excellent shelf life, chia seeds are also extremely versatile. It’s therefore no surprise they are popular with so many end consumers.

Quality assured chia seeds from Cono

Chia seeds are used by both the food and pharmaceutical industry. They can be used in a variety of different shapes; as whole seeds, ground, in the form of flour, oil and gel. Chia seeds can be added raw to cereal, yoghurt, salads, soups, puddings, juices and smoothies, and as an ingredient in baking to boost the nutrient content of bread and pastries. Left to soak in water, swollen chia seeds can be used as an egg or margarine substitute for baking, or as a gelling agent for puddings and sauces. Chia oil is one of the most valuable oils on the market today and has various applications, including as a dietary supplement.
