    Chia is the common name for Salvia hispanica, a tiny seed with powerful nutritional and energy-giving properties. Chia seeds have been named a ‘Super Food’ for their various health benefits. They are high in fibre, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids, in which they promote digestive health, skin repairing and heart health.

    There is no significant nutritional difference between black and white chia seeds.
