Chia is a gluten-free seed that is among the healthiest foods on the planet. It is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, quality protein and fibre, as well as calcium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. Whole chia seeds are very versatile, making them easy to incorporate in your diet at every meal: you can have them at breakfast sprinkled over your oatmeal, in your salad dressing at lunch, and in your baked goods for dessert!There is no significant difference in taste and nutritional profile between white and black chia. Both are organic and have the same texture and application.
Chia is native to Mexico’s central valleys and belongs to the mint family. Chia, often gifted to the Gods, was the third most important food crop after corn and beans in the Aztec culture. Along with the Mayans, they were the first to cultivate the seed.
The chia was rediscovered in the 1990s after having been ignored for centuries, and has been consistently rising in popularity since.
Chia seeds have a light taste that makes them easy to integrate in your daily diet as they do not alter the flavour of your dishes. Add chia to smoothies, juices, and other beverages, or throw them in your soups, salads, dressings and sauces. Sprinkle chia seeds on your oatmeal, yogurt and cereal, or use chia in your baked goods recipes as a substitute for eggs or as a thickener.
Do you have an egg allergy? Chia seeds are an excellent substitute for eggs! Soak 1 tablespoon of chia in 3 tablespoons of water for each egg your recipe requires. For best results, use ground chia seeds.
Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity for up to 24 months.
