The name ‘chia’ comes from the native language of the Nahuatl tribe of Central America. Chia seeds have a high nutritional value, and contain more omega 3 fats than any other vegetable source. They are rich in protein, amino acids and all sorts of healthy vitamins and minerals. They have a whole range of other health benefits as well and truly deserve to be considered a superfood!
