Chia is the richest plant source of Omega-3 fatty acids. It has a good range of B vitamins, more calcium than milk, healthy omega-3 oils, high levels of anti-oxidants, and important trace-minerals such as boron, which prevents arthritis and osteoporosis. The seeds are also a good source of dietary fibre.

How to consume Chia Seeds : Very versatile.
-Add directly to water, smoothies, juices, beverages. Hot or cold- does not matter. Stir liquid quickly for a while so that seeds will not clump together. Let sit for about 1-2 min (for the seeds to soak up the liquid and to form a gelatinous layer – this is good for nutrient absorption in the body). Drink up the liquid together with the seeds. You can also keep the mixture in the fridge for the seeds to absorb even more liquid and ‘expand’ more, which is great for nutrient absorption in the body..
-Make chia gel (mix chia seeds and small amount of water – 1 portion seed to 4 or 6 portions water – and let mixture sit for some time) – stir chia gel into salads, porridges, deserts.
-Bake chia seeds with breads, cookies.
Experiment creatively with chia seeds!
