Chia – Chia, a flowering plant, is a member of the mint family and originates from Mexico and South America. Chia’s appeal is in the nutritional punch of its tiny seeds.

With more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon, a wealth of antioxidants and minerals, a complete source of protein and more fibre than flax seed, the seeds have been dubbed a “dieter’s dream”, “the running food”, “a miracle”, and “the ultimate super food”, by advocates and athletes.

Ciabatta – Ciabatta is a light Italian yeast bread which is soft and chewy on the inside with a thin crunchy rustic crust. An ideal accompaniment to any meal, the name ‘ciabatta’ is derived from the Italian word slipper as the loaf is made in the shape of a slipper.
Available as a loaf or roll – suitable for vegetarians.
