The Chia Pod website states: “The perfect energy boosting breakfast, Chia Pods contain one full serve of sun ripened chia seeds mixed with fruit and coconut milk. Dairy and gluten free, Chia Pods deliver 100% of your daily omega-3 and 25% of your daily fiber requirements. Chia Pods are entirely preservative and additive free. Cold processing has been used to ensure the full nutrition, taste and color of the fruit is retained, and pure coconut milk gives Chia Pods a creamy texture while providing healthy, medium-chain fatty acids. For those flavors which have been lightly sweetened, we have used natural, low-GI coconut sugar. Chia Pods are vegan and non-GMO. Chia Pod lid, cup and spoon are 100% recyclable and have been made from 30% recycled material.”
We tried the Mango and Vanilla Bean flavours. Our reviewer like the Mango flavour but found the Vanilla Bean flavour rather bland for his palate. However he is known for his regular snack attacks and has a very sweet tooth. Those more used to eating healthier foods will not notice the lack of added sugar. Our reviewer did say that the texture was pleasant and the Chia Pod kept him feeling full the entire morning thanks to its slow release of energy that kept him sustained for longer. Chia Pods are available in Planet Organic, Partridges of Sloane Street and all good health food retailers.
