Chia seeds

An important vegetarian source of omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid

Our raw and unprocessed Mexican Chia Seeds are a great source of essential fatty acids, vitamins, protein, calcium. 

They have been eaten throughout Central and Southern America for thousands of years and were part of the staple diet of the Aztecs and Indians.

Under European Regulations, chia seeds have been classed as novel foods and can be ONLY consumed as an ingredient for baked goods comprising a maximum 5% of the content. The EU Novel Food ACt 1997 was brought in to protect against Genetically Modified (GM) foods, but was extended to any unusual food, includig many ancient foods. GM foods are no longer part of the act, but still it remains!

Please note we are not responsible for different usage (other than the EU approved way) of Chia seeds.
