We love to use seeds as much as possible, as they are a great source of protein, omega 3's and fibre, all ingredients necessary for great health.
Here are their favourite facts about some of the main ingredients used:
These tiny seeds are one of the richest source of omega-3 fats of any plant containing approximately 32% omega-3 fats. Chia seeds are also a great dairy free source of calcium - 100g of chia seeds will provide you with the same amount of calcium as 2 glasses of milk!
Flaxseeds contain 50 to 60% omega-3 fats, essential for heart, joint and brain health. They are also rich in dietary fibre, antioxidants and B vitamins.
Pepitas are a source of zinc and protein and they also provide iron, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, some B-complex vitamins and dietary fibre. Like most seeds and nuts, pepitas are also rich in ‘good’ fats.
