Chia seeds are proof that dynamite comes in small packages. High in protein, calcium, omega 3 and minerals, chia seeds are a superfood beneficial especially to plant-based diets. High levels of omega 3 also make chia key in raising HDL cholestrol levels (the good cholestrol), helping protect against heart attack and stroke.

  • Non-GMO chia seeds
  • A good source of green protein and minerals
  • Naturally gluten free
  • Anti-oxidant properties
  • A plant based source of omega 3 and calcium
  • Ideal as a vegan egg-replacement for baking


  • Chia can be added to smoothies, date balls, snack bars, or poke bowls for powerful nutrition punch
  • It's not necessary to soak chia seeds, but doing so can help maximize the bioavailability.
  • Chia absorbs water very quickly, so for this reason they make an ideal addition to smoothies and poke bowls.
  • When added to date balls or snack bars chia add an appealing crunch to the texture, as well as protein, fibre, and minerals.

To use chia as an egg-replacer: To replace 1 egg, use 1 tablespoon of chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water and let the mixture sit for 15 to 20 minutes until it becomes gelatinous.

Great value for money as compared to other brands and it works/tastes just as good as the others.
13/03/2019, By Sandra
Definitely best value for money for this bulk pack. I sprinkle some on top of my oats or add them to my smoothies.

Also great as an egg replacer: 1 tbsp chia seeds to 3 tbsp water. Mix and set aside till gelatinous and use to replace 1 egg.

I'm sure it's great for people with minor skin problems, but it doesn't do much for major breakouts

Best value for money honestly, no regrets.

I'm really enjoying adding them to yoghurt. Helps keep me feeling full for longer. Great price, too!
19/02/2019, By Puseletso
First time using chia seeds. I put it on my porridge and in smoothies. Lovely.
17/02/2019, By Danielle
Great value for money - buying in bulk makes them the cheapest chia seeds I've found in SA.
12/02/2019, By Louise
Great price. I just soak in water for an hour and eat as is for an easy breakfast. Swells to a cup full which is filling enough.

I absolutely love these. They last long and add extra crunch to so many things.

Very well priced. Love adding a spoonful to my overnight oats as it helps to keep me feeling fuller for longer and is also great for digestion.

I was stunned to find Chia seeds at this low price. True Foods is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands!
05/12/2018, By Weasel
Great price and awesome taste. Definitely going to keep on buying this one.

Let it be known, i'm not writing this review to earn a faithful point, okay maybe i am but that price tag is really worth the trouble.

This is the cheapest i've ever seen chia seeds especially after having to get them from woolworths. My only recommendation is to add them to every purchase you make on ftl, the last thing you want is to run out. :)

Great quality seeds and affordable. I like the packaging.
09/11/2018, By Connie
I order for friends and colluges too. They love the quality and price. So many uses, for some of my friends it's a must have for weightloss.

I love the resealable packaging and it is great value for money as well. Cheaper than other brands I have bought before.

Love the product. Really great value for money.
Packaging could use some improvement though. Maybe something biodegradable?
12/08/2018, By Chelseybunnz
Lovely. Packaging is resealable. Value for money
27/07/2018, By Catia
Really great quality for the cost. Nutty, earthy taste. Not the best packaging (my seal didnt close properly), but I decanted it into a jar so it wasnt a problem! :)
27/07/2018, By Anna-Bet
Great value for money. Very versatile. Wish there was a way that it could come packaged in bio-degradable packaging though.
24/07/2018, By Zanel
super affordable for great quality. love putting this over yogurt and oats for breakfast.
01/07/2018, By Nicole
Cheaper than Montagu chia seeds, and just as good! I’m happy with this product.
21/06/2018, By Brenda
I bought these to try because of all the lovely pics i saw online with gorgeous fruit in little jam jars, but the reality not quite the same. Simple enough to make and i think the liquid you use may make a difference - im still experimenting. When they swell up, they remind me of tomato pips - you know with like a puffy film around the pip. The whole mixture was kind of gooey. I made a liquid of milk, coconut milk, vanilla and xylitol. It was a great snack when i felt like something sweet. Added some butter and heated it up on cold night and almost like sago. Good for Banters like me - will keep on trying various liquids to see how taste is affected.

great value

I am going to try a packet to see what these local chias are like. Fantastic to have them grown locally. I sometimes grow some in my garden but just to get the seeds out without messing is very time consuming for me. Do not pass one day without my chia seeds. Will let you know once we have tried them.
21/06/2018, By Stephnie
Very happy with the product itself - however I was disappointed that the package I received stated that it was a product of a South American country, and not KZN as I was expecting.
21/06/2018, By nicki
Fantastic product, well packaged and has a variety of uses. I use it as a breakfast for myself and use it for my horses added to their feed, helps remove sand from the gut

"Truefood Chia Seeds are the first to be locally grown in the Kwa-Zulu Natal province of South Africa, with no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides used in their cultivation." This message attracted me: but only to find out that the package reads: Imported from Argentina, so where is the guarantee of the above message. Also I believed that being packed in a 1kg package that the product might be cheaper: 1st locally grown and then less packaging cost, I did not found it more economic. Our family eats Chia every single day, so price and quality are very important. We found the Chia seeds excellent.

Admin: Product copy has been updated since Truefoods informed us that they no longer source their chia from Kwa-Zulu Natal, but have changed to importing from Argentina. Apologies for this incontinuity.

Lovely addition to morning breakfast cereal, fruit, rusks and scones. Also wonderful when soaked for a while to form a jelly-like substance to help ease constipation!

So good and nutritious
21/06/2018, By Deborah
Great value for money with the added perk of not using synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in cultivation.

Good product. Mine came nicely packaged in a re-sealable bag. Perfect addition to my breakfast "pudding". Lots of uses, lots of goodness. A must have in my kitchen :)
21/06/2018, By Q
The packaging was even better than the one displayed on the site because it is a strong paper bag with a ziploc.
