RTÉ.ie Food has teamed up with Chia bia, Ireland’s largest supplier of Chia seeds, to offer five lucky winners a hamper of Chia bia’s award-winning range worth €50 each!

Recommended by health conscious celebrities, including actress Gwyneth Paltrow and supermodel Miranda Kerr, Chia seeds are an ancient super food grown in South America. Chia seeds are a natural, gluten-free, food source containing all essential amino acids. They are the highest known plant based source of Omega 3 and are high in fibre, calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and zinc.

Health benefits of Chia bia include;

• maintaining a healthy heart and digestive system

• improved memory and concentration

• balanced blood sugar levels

• relief from joint pain

• encouraging weight loss

• increased energy levels.

Chia seeds are tasteless, very versatile and a great addition to sprinkle on salads and breakfast cereals, to stir through smoothies and yoghurts, and mixed with juice or water. Chia can also be used to thicken soups, curries and casseroles, adding vital nutrients.

A convenient healthy boost for adults and children alike, Chia bia’s range of products are recommended for daily use and come in Whole Chia Seed; Milled Chia Seed; Chia and Blueberry Mix and Chia and Cranberry Mix. Chia bia has also developed a delicious range of organic nutrient bars including ‘Chocolate, Cranberry and Coconut’ and ‘Chocolate, Nut and Seed’, recently nominated for the first Irish Quality Food Awards.

Chia bia is available in the gluten-free aisles of Dunnes Stores, Supervalu’s, Musgraves and Tesco as well as specialist health stores across the country.
