A WORD FROM THE DIETITIAN

With approximately 32g fibre/100g chia seeds are a very high fibre food. A sprinkle of these magical seeds onto your meals can significantly increase it’s nutrition density, however be careful of eating large amounts of chia seeds, such as in chia puddings. Too much fibre, and their ability to absorb a lot of water, may cause some stomach pain or diarrhoea. So as always, everything in moderation
