From making jams at home for fun, then encouraged by her husband and friends to start packaging what they enjoyed, Ayesha Allen started selling her Chia Seed Jams in 2016. Ayesha and husband, Ramaar took a leap of faith and just 2 months later they were nominated for Best Product for the Table Talk Jamaica Observer Food Awards in 2017!
Their Chia Seed Jams are Gluten free, Vegan friendly and come in a variety of flavours such as Strawberry, Blueberry and Pineapple. The Pineapple and Strawberry are favourites and I can see why. The flavours are stronger than the Blueberry. Even though you can order your Jams non-sweetened, I found there is no need, because the original isn’t even that sweet but still has the right balance of flavour. I tried them both. So you can enjoy these Jams with pretty much anything.
The business has expanded to offer healthy snacks too or what some persons like myself use as part of a Shake, such as Peanuts, Walnuts, Almonds, Pistachios, Chia seeds, Raisins and Cranberries, all at affordable prices.
Here are great ways to enjoy your Ara Foods Flavoured Chia Seed Jams!
● With your Yogurt
Suga’s favourite so far is the Strawberry Chia Seed Jam. I made my own Yogurt Parfait and it was divine! Enjoy food the in a healthy way!
● With your Porridge
● As a Dip
● As a spread
Your Ara Food Jams would complement a Peanut Butter spread on bread or crackers so well!
● With your Pancakes
Last weekend I had the Blueberry Chia Seed Jam with my Pancakes and a touch of low fat butter. It hit the spot!
● As a Pastry Filling
● As a topping to your Cheesecake or Pie
Such a guilty pleasure!
A range of options for reasonable prices!
