Chia seeds are new to Europe and have gained much publicity of late as more people continue to discover for themselves the health benefits associated with chia such as weight loss, reduced cholesterol and blood pressure, and increased energy. They haven’t passed the celebrity radar either with Hollywood stars like Orlando Bloom, his model girlfriend Miranda Kerr and uber-chic Gwyneth Paltrow all declaring their love for the tiny black and white seeds. Chia bia are an Irish company ready for this increased demand for chia and have launched a range of products all containing the highly nutritious chia seed.
Chia is the highest known plant based source of Omega 3 and as people become more aware of the lack of Omega 3 in their diets, Chia bia makes it easy to top up on this important nutrient, but that’s not all. Chia is a complete superfood as it contains all of the essential amino acids, is high in fibre, a source of protein and antioxidants, is gluten free, sugar free, trans fat free, non GMO and pesticide free. This is why Chia bia have decided to go more mainstream by targeting supermarkets as their products appeal to so many and not just the health food industry.
Chia bia leads the way in delivering quality Chia seeds as all seeds are sourced and approved by Dr. Wayne Coates who is responsible for bringing Chia seeds back to commercialisation. He ensures that all Chia bia seeds are of the highest quality and he can guarantee that no immature seeds are sold through the Chia bia brand.
Chia bia offer a range of products to help people bring chia seeds into their lives and reap the many benefits it brings. Company founders Barrie Rogers and Ray Owens will be at stand 615, available to talk about Chia bia’s products and about how Chia bia can benefit your health from helping to prevent cardiovascular diseases to how it can increase energy levels.
