What is Chia Meal?

Chia meal is a new product from the raw food and superfood suppliers Soaring Free Superfoods. It is a blend of the best and most nutritious superfoods to satisfy your hunger and make a delicious breakfast, dessert or snack.

Chia meal is packed with eight powerful organic superfoods, including chia seeds, lucuma powder, shelled hemp seeds, raw cacao nibs, raw cacao powder, mesquite powder, white mulberries, goji berries, as well as vanilla powder for extra flavour.

Chia seeds are rich in protein, healthy fats and fibre. They have provided stamina and strength to ancient Mayan and Aztec tribes for centuries. Hemp seeds, also contained in Chia meal, provide a good balance of proteins, essential fats, vitamins and enzymes.

Lucuma powder adds a sweet and creamy texture to Chia meal. Lucuma powder is rich in antioxidants, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins and 14 minerals, including a considerable amount of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and skin-repair benefits.

Mesquite powder adds a sweet flavour with a slight caramel taste. It is high in protein, fibre, calcium, iron, lysine, manganese, zinc, and potassium.

White mulberries are small berries with a fig-like taste. They are loaded with antioxidants and protect against chronic illness that is caused by free radical damage.

The combination of all these superfoods means that Chia meal is rich in protein, fibre and slow releasing carbohydrates. It will not spike your blood sugar and it benefits the health of your digestive tract.
