Chia is the Mayan word for strength and has been part of this ancient culture for a very long time. Chia seeds still remain a dietary staple in many South and Central American countries. Its nutritional highlights include its rich source of fibre which makes it a very useful dietary food. Just one teaspoon of Chia offers 5 grams of fibre and Chia seeds are rich in protein and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. This makes it a very healthy food that is beneficial for digestion, slimming and maintaining regular bowel movement. Chia also provides antioxidants and even some calcium and iron. The Chia seed packs a lot of nutrition into a small serving, and is an easy way boost your fibre and plant-based omega-3 intake.
Fushi superfoods are bio-dynamically grown, cold processed and 100% raw to retain their complete nutritional properties. They are grown and derived from sustainable sources. We believe in being honest to our customers, kind to our planet and responsible for our actions.
For the packaging of our Superfoods we have chosen to use glass, a recyclable material. We do not use the more popular laminated pouches as these are unrecyclable. We aim to use materials that are best for the planet, and reflect our ethos of being earth friendly. So they might not be as pretty, but they’re kinder for the planet!
