Chia Seeds

BioBalance



  • BioBalance's premium Chia Seeds are nature’s complete superfood – a gluten free nutritional power-house for endurance and strength.

    Derived from the herb mint family, Chia seeds are one of our favourite superfoods. They are the highest plant-based source of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids, making them a super sustainable alternative to seafood and fish oil. Omega 3 can't be produced by our bodies and therefore must be consumed. Omega 3's are known for their role in encouraging healthy skin, hair, nails, joints, and brain function; improving post-workout recovery and cardiovascular function; increasing metabolism and promoting fat-burning; and preventing heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and arthritis.

    Chia seeds are also a fantastic source of complete protein (20% protein), as they contain all eight essential amino acids. They are rich in dietary fibre making them great for maintaining digestive health. They're also high in anti-aging antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.

  • Add a tablespoon of Chia Seeds to your favourite smoothie; sprinkle on breakfast cereal or yogurt; or add to salads. Use to make your own raw cacao bliss balls, or our favourite - Coconut Cashew Chia Cream, a wonderful yoghurt/cream replacement. Add to your bircher muesli overnight too, as they'll absorb the liquid and creating a nice thick creamy texture. Or mix into your favourite plant-based milk along with some flavourings to make a delicious chia pudding. See our Recipes tab for more ideas.

    Use to make a great egg replacement - perfect for plant-based cholesterol-free baking. Simply mix 1 Tablespoon chia seeds with 3 Tablespoons water and leave for 15 mins until it form a gel - this equates to 1 egg. Use in any baking or pancake recipe that require eggs.

    Note: Make sure you drink plenty of water when consuming Chia Seeds, as they absorb lots of water and are high in dietary fibre.
