These tiny treasures are truly the whole reason we’re here. Don’t be fooled by their size, chia seeds are labelled a superfood for good reason. They’re one of the most nutrient dense foods on our planet! In a single pouch of Chiamigos, the chia seeds alone are responsible for providing you with calcium, potassium, magnesium, omega 3’s, and a load of fibre to keep your awesome intestinal tract flowing. Chi-Yeah!
Almonds are the prized jewel of the nut kingdom. They’re as good as it gets. Adding to the already-impressive fibre and protein count, almonds are an impressive source of calcium and iron. If you live a plant-based lifestyle, these nuts give you freedom without living in fear that you’ll run into deficiency. Go nuts!
Another amigo that we couldn’t live without. Coconut milk powder is made from the meat of mature coconuts. High in lauric acid (also found in mothers milk) and a good source of antioxidants, coconut milk is a great partner for our team. It gives our flavours a subtle smell and taste of the tropics while providing the perfect creamy texture. When combined with our other ingredients, coconut milk is like the best friend that holds everyone together.

Cinnamon is a veteran in the food business. Having been harvested and traded for thousands of years, this spice boasts its fragrance, flavour, and anti-inflammatory properties. For us, it’s the answer to a sugar problem. Cinnamon’s semi-sweet taste can substitute for sugar, so we use it where we can. A small pinch of this fairy dust allows us to bring you a product lower in sugar but just as magical!
Cocoa trees are truly a gift. They’re responsible for producing a beautifully tasting fruit that’s so versatile it should be called the chameleon of food. Cocoa powder, just one of the finished products of cocoa fruits, is a result of fermenting, drying, and cleaning the seeds. Did we mention that a little of this stuff will go a long way? Cocoa powder is jam packed with bold flavours that give you a rich, dark chocolate taste. Nutritionally speaking, it’s loaded with fibre and antioxidants to help your body fight disease and run smoothly. We can’t forget that cocoa is also responsible for our addiction to chocolate – not a bad thing!
Like almonds, peanuts are quite the dignified nut. No surprise why we use them so often! They’re rich in minerals that assist your daily metabolic functions, giving your body the fluency to work without cracks. You’ll find them delicately nestled, ready for your eating in our Crunchy Peanut Butter flavour pouch.
Coconut sugar is beginning to gain space in the food market for its amazing qualities. There’s a lot we can write, so a blog will have to come out on this ingredient later. For now, let’s highlight a couple of reasons why we use raw organic coconut sugar:
1) It’s rich with vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function properly. Potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium just to name a few.
2) Coconut sugar is a low-glycemic sugar, meaning it takes longer to digest. This is perfect for endurance athletes who need energy over a longer period of time. Think about us the next time you’re running a marathon!
