Ingredients100% Chia Seeds
What is the difference between white and black chia seeds?
We get asked this regularly. They are virtually identical other than the obvious variation in colour.
What does ChiaTone™ taste like?
Chia has very little flavour and can be added to food and drinks without affecting the taste. In some cases, it actually enhances flavours as it has 'displacement' properties. When eaten plain or as a gel there is a vague nutty taste.
Is ChiaTone™ Gluten-Free?
Yes it is!
Can ChiaTone™ help me with regularity?
Yes, chia seeds contain high amounts of fibre that help to retain water throughout digestion, cleansing and hydrating the digestive system.
When is the best time to eat ChiaTone™?
Whenever you feel like it! If you are about to do physical exercise and want to stay hydrated and energised, try a tablespoon in a bottle of water or juice. If you want to reduce your appetite, eat it with meals. You will find that you stay feeling fuller for longer and don't feel the urge to snack.
Will Chia make me lose weight?
The Chia seeds themselves won't make you lose weight but they can be used very successfully as part of an overall diet strategy. Chia seeds are often used as meal replacements or added to food to make it more filling. If you research this further you will see many people have had exciting results.
