VANCOUVER, Jan. 6 /CNW/ - The Chia seed, which can help improve heart health and stabilize blood sugar levels, is now available at COBS Bread. Today, the company announced the introduction of three new CHIA Breads: White, Whole Wheat and Flax.

Chia was famously used by the Aztecs and Mayans and is the highest-plant based source of omega-3 (ALA) at 19.3 percent. "Chia seeds are naturally rich in soluble fibre, omega-3 fats and antioxidants. These healthy nutrients support cardiovascular health, stabilize blood sugar levels and provide sustained energy" says Ramona Josephson RDN, the best-selling author of Heart Smart Nutrition.

COBS Bread, which has entered into an exclusive partnership with The Chia Company, is excited to introduce this innovative product. "We pride ourselves on delivering healthy products to our customers. This national partnership with The Chia Company will enable us to pass on the health benefits of Chia to our consumers through our freshly baked bread" said Elise Gillespie, Vice President of COBS Bread.

Ramona Josephson applauds these new breads as exciting, healthy additions to a daily diet and as a positive step in tackling serious health concerns related to heart disease and blood sugar control.  

Two slices of COBS CHIA Bread provide 100% of the daily intake of omega-3 fats for children and women and 90% for men. They also provide up to 30% of the daily recommended intake of dietary fibre. "Bread is a staple in so many of our diets and COBS' new CHIA Breads make it easy to meet our daily needs for these nutrients" Josephson adds.

The team of bakers at COBS Bread continue to work hard each day to provide fresh, tasty bread using all natural ingredients and very importantly, no preservatives in their Traditional and Continental range. With fresh bread coming out of ovens long into the day, customers can always get the freshest products from their local COBS bakery.


COBS Bread is part of the world's most successful franchise bakery network - Bakers Delight - an Australian-owned company. Bakers Delight has been in operation for more than 30 years and has more than 700 bakeries across Australia, New Zealand and Canada where the company operates as COBS Bread. All of COBS' baked goods are made on the same day they are sold ensuring that everything is fresh and delightful. Any unsold items are donated daily to various local charities and food banks.

The Chia Company is the world's largest producer of natural, raw Chia seeds. It's farms are located in the pristine Kimberley region of Western Australia, exactly 15 degrees south of the equator. Chia needs to be grown at this latitude to ensure omega-3 oil is provided in every seed. COBS Bread has chosen to partner with The Chia Company because it offers full transparency in it's supply chain and quality is guaranteed.

The Chia Company was established to contribute positively to the health and wellbeing of the global community. Company founder and Managing Director John Foss discovered Chia while researching natural solutions to modern diet-related illnesses such as obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol. As the modern diet lacks omega-3, dietary fibre and protein, and because Chia contains the highest plant form of these nutrients, it makes an extremely positive contribution to a healthy global community.
