Now organic! Thousands of years ago, chia seeds (salvia Hispanic) were a staple in the diets of ancient Mayans and Aztecs. The word chia is derived from the Mayan language, meaning “strength,” and ancient Aztec warriors relied on chia seeds to boost energy and increase stamina. Today this tiny seed is a favourite of athletes, especially distance runners, who tout it as an endurance-enhancing superfood.

Omega-3s, Antioxidants and More

The benefits of adding chia seeds to your diet are boundless. By eating chia seeds, you'll enjoy a wealth of fibre: 5 grams in just one tablespoon, as well as 10% of your daily value for calcium and iron. Chia seeds also contain antioxidants, so-called “healthy fats” and essential fatty acids, including omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alpha-linolenic acid, and omega-6 fatty acids in the form of linoleic acid, which could help control blood sugar and also aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

It's the fibre in chia seeds that causes the dry seeds to swell when combined with water, creating chia gel. Whether you eat chia gel or just raw chia seeds, their hydrophilic properties will keep you full longer than many other seeds, which may aid in weight loss.

Ingredients

Organic Whole Chia Seeds.

Suggested Use

Aside from the health benefits of raw organic chia seeds, amazingly, chia gel can also be used as a substitute for eggs in many baked goods. Use a 1 to 6 ratio of chia seeds to water to make chia gel. Use approximately one tablespoon of chia gel to replace one large egg in your baked goods.

The mild, nutty flavour of black chia seeds goes well with both sweet and savoury dishes. There are chia seed recipes for puddings and smoothies, baked goods and more. Sprinkle ground chia on top of porridge and salads, and add to baked goods in place of flaxseed meal or poppy seeds.
