Truefarm Chia seeds contain all the Essential Amino Acids and are thus a complete protein, so are useful for Vegetarians and Vegans alike, as well as a very good amount of Fiber too, some 37g per 100g.

But it’s the beneficial Fat content that’s really notable about Chia as they are especially Rich Source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), a member of the Omega 3 Essential Fat family and a vegetarian version of the fats found in oily fish. ALA can help reduce overall cholesterol levels as well as protect it against oxidation.

Truefarm Chia has a milder flavour when mixed with food, and they can be sprinkled on salads, soups, into yogurts and smoothie or on frozen yogurt.  Aside from the nutritional contents, chia adds a satisfying crunch, which is welcome when eating something that might otherwise have little texture.
