Seed Sensations Chia Bread

Hovis® have partnered with farmers of chia seeds, The Chia Co.® to create, Hovis Chia Bread. It’s an easy way to include Chia in your diet whilst enjoying the great taste of Hovis bread.

The Chia Co. were so inspired by the nutritional content of Chia Seeds, that they dedicated themselves to reviving them. Chia Seeds, have, until now, been left out of the modern western diet because it is hard to grow and requires specific climatic conditions.

Hovis Chia bread is a source of protein, a source of fibre, has no added sugars (contains naturally occurring sugars) and is low in saturated fat.

Made with seeds from The Chia Co.

A NEW, EASY WAY TO EAT CHIA SEEDS (SALVIA HISPANICA)

Chia seeds offer a natural source of Fibre and Protein and have a very mild and pleasant taste. They’re not farmed in the UK or Europe as the plants grow best 15° from the equator, needing specific day lengths and climates to produce the best quality seeds.

Hovis Chia Bread offers a really easy and convenient way to incorporate chia seeds into your diet. It has a very mild flavour and texture that tastes delicious with both sweet and savoury toast toppers or with any sandwich you fancy.

WHO ARE THE CHIA CO.?

Australian farmer, John Foss, and his company The Chia Co. are the world’s biggest branded Chia seed producers so are the perfect partner to help us bring Chia seeds to the UK in our delicious loaves.

John began farming Chia seeds in Australia in 2003 and has since built a global supply chain for Chia, with every Chia seed traceable to the paddock on which it was grown. The Chia Co. are passionate about sustainable farming and operate a fair-value farming model, ensuring that profits are returned to farmers so they can reinvest in their businesses and local communities

Chia seeds from the The Chia Co are also great quality. They start with the best soil, apply ample water at exactly the right time and test every single batch for nutrition. They also allow the Chia Seed to ripen naturally under the sun for an extra 10 days after harvest.

The Chia Co. have specially farmed Chia seed for Hovis Chia Bread - like a farmers market on a global scale.
