Mamma Chia Squeeze: Green Magic nutrition information panel

Ingredients: Hydrated organic chia seeds (water, organic chia seeds), organic banana puree, organic mango puree, organic apple juice concentrate, organic lemon juice, organic spirulina, organic natural mango flavor, citric acid, organic kale, organic natural pineapple flavor.

Nutritional benefits: 

  • Chia seeds are a great source of essential fatty acids (including omega-3, -6 and -9), which need to be obtained through diet, since the body is unable to produce them.
  • While Omega-6 is readily available in the food supply, Omega-3 is not to the same extent. It’s important to keep a balance between the two, so chia seeds are great to improve your Omega-3 intake.
  • Chia seeds are also loaded with antioxidants that are involved in preventing ageing and cancer developing.
  • Mamma Chia Squeeze is high in fibre, which helps keep the digestive system healthy.
  • Mamma Chia Squeeze is low in saturated fat and sodium, making it a great heart healthy snack.

Additional information: 

  • Chia seeds are a higher quality protein source than most other plant foods, meaning they’re both great for improving satiety and as a protein source for vegetarians.

Where to buy: iHerb.com, Mamma Chia, and some speciality health food stores around Australia.

Conclusion 

Chia seeds are packed with nutrients when taking into account their low energy content. Try them out with this yummy option!

Until next time,
