From avocados to blueberries, wheatgrass and goji berries, the world is obsessed with superfoods – no matter what they cost us.

But now, Australian publication, Taste, has revealed the top 100 affordable superfoods for 2017.

From eggs to quinoa, watercress and black beans, FEMAIL introduces ten which are packed with goodness, but which also give extra bang for their (not that pricey) buck.

Because not every superfood has to come with a super expensive price tag.

Quinoa is popular with health nuts because it’s one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat, and it also contains twice as much fibre as other grains.

Next up is watercress, which is packed full of disease-fighting antioxidants.

Eating watercress raw is the best way to gain its benefits, while buying it in the summer is also the best plan because it’s in season at that time.

Third and fourth on the budget superfood list are apples and chia.

While the tiny seeds might be more expensive than some other foods on the list, chia seeds pack a huge nutritional punch, thanks to their omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid content.

They are also filled with fibre and protein.

Inside the top ten are foods you might expect to be included in a health food list – such as green tea and eggs – but also things that are somewhat more unusual, like kangaroo and black beans.

Rounding out the ten most affordable are kiwi fruits and lentils.
