British Chia Seed

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

We're excited to offer the first ever British-grown chia seeds! These versatile and nutritious seeds are delicious sprinkled on salads, added to smoothies or in baking. They make a great vegan egg replacement too.

Grown by Peter and Andrew Fairs in Essex, these chia seeds are the result of five years of crop trials and developments. The tiny oil-rich seeds are harvested from the Salvia hispanica plant, a member of the mint family originating in central America, where chia was a staple food in Aztec cultures, alongside beans and corn.
