Did you know Chia is the Aztec word for ‘strength‘ and Bia means ‘food’ in Irish?
Harnessing this philosophy, the team at Chia Bia have incorporated the benefits of their nutritious range to produce two new product and modernise their packaging.
Chia Bia has taken on a vibrant new look to illustrate the health benefits of these nutritious seeds and the versatility of the products which can be added into any meal. The range has also been redeveloped to introduce two new functional products to the brands offering; Chia Bia Gut Health and Chia Bia Immune Support.
Chia Bia Gut Health specifically supports the normal function of digestive enzymes supporting the digestive system with its unique strain of live bio culture. It is also high in calcium. It contains a unique strain of live bio cultures that support your digestive health.
Chia Bia Immune Support has added vitamins and minerals specifically selected to support the function of the immune system, such as Vitamin D and high levels of vitamin C and copper. It also contains a unique strain of live bio cultures that support your immune system.
These developments come after the acquisition of Chia Bia by Linwoods Health Foods in 2020. Chia Bia originally formed in Tramore Co. Waterford and was the first company to bring whole, milled and flavoured chia seeds to Ireland. Linwoods Health Foods is an Armagh based family owned company famously known for its milled flax, hemp and chia seed ranges.
Patrick Woods, Managing Director of Linwoods Health Foods commented “We are delighted to be adding Chia Bia to our portfolio of seed brands. At Linwoods, we are focused on producing the highest quality health foods to support and enhance a balanced lifestyle and a healthy diet and there is no doubt that Chia Bia does just that.”
