There are products which have 'superfood' stamped on them, chia however ought to have 'uber-super-ultra-mega food' stamped on the front of it from what I've learned.

I first learned about Chia through Christopher McDougall's 'Born to Run'. It was the thing which most captured my attention even though the whole book is packed full of fascinating stuff. As soon as he started to reveal a bit more about chia I had two thoughts: 1. "I've got to get some chia & try this for myself!" & 2. "I must know more!"

First thing I discovered is that there isn't much written on chia. Secondly I discovered that chia isn't all that common, almost nowhere sells it & nobody knows what the heck it is! So when the experts say it's the best kept natural health food secret there is, they're not exaggerating. However you can count on amazon to sell just about anything & everything. The bag featured here is actually much larger than it looks & will go further than you expect!

Chia was in it's heyday around the 12th Century among the Aztecs & the Mayans. It was considered a sacred food because, without all the scientific research that has been done on chia in recent years, they managed to perceive that even small quantities of this food gave the eater energy, stamina & good health.

If you are au fait with chia knowledge, you might have perhaps come across it in 'Born to Run' or articles relating to the Tarahumara. The Tarahumara are a Native American tribe who know the secrets of this desert food & managed to compete in a 200 mile Ultra-Marathon. They not only competed but took most of the top spot finishing positions, despite competing against much younger competitors who have all of today's modern running gadgetry, diet & training advice etc.

"Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, grown in Mexico dating back to Mayan and Aztec cultures. "Chia" means strength, and folklore has it that these cultures used the tiny black and white seeds as an energy booster. That makes sense, as chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. ". WebMD

Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds . One ounce or about 2 tablespoons is the recommended daily dose. The mild, nutty flavor of chia seeds makes them easy to add to foods and beverages. I sprinkle on cereal, sauces, vegetables, rice dishes, or yogurt or mixed into drinks and baked goods. They can also be mixed with water and made into a gel.

From what I have read there is NO research that shows chia seeds can help you lose weight. The thought is that chia seeds expands your stomach, giving you the feeling of fullness. It does not seem to hurt, so go for it.

This is a very reputable brand, so I trust them to provide the best product. This is a very good purchase for the price.

I wouldn't be without Chia Seeds since trying them for the first time a few months ago. A powerhouse of anti-oxidants and so easy to incorporate into your diet - Anti-cancer and give me so much energy its unreal.

I've just uploaded an image of my Chia Seed Pudding - made with Chia Seeds, 100% Cocoa Powder and fresh full-fat milk. Its delicious! and a must for chocolate lovers.

Being able to buy in 1kg bags is great, never going to run out and a competitive price with delivery to my door. The seller was great! Delivered so quickly :)

Resealable package to keep them fresh and dry.

Invaluable for health and energy benefits. Worth every penny.

I sprinkle a Tbsp on Weetabix with hot milk and stir it in.
Sprinkle a couple Tbsp into soups and casseroles.
Make Chia Jelly

Lots of ways to enjoy it!
