Enjoy Me...

  • Chia seed may be eaten raw as a dietary fibre and omega-3 supplement or when soaked made into porridge, puddings or cakes. It is also used frequently in baked goods, including breads, cakes and biscuits.
  • You can mix chia into porridge for a tasty and nutritious punch to your breakfast. Simply add a tablespoon per portion while you heat it in the pot. This makes a nutrient dense porridge by adding essential fat and protein to your breakfast.

How Interesting...

  • Chia seeds have a well-known ability to form a gel when soaked in water or other liquid. The outer shell of chia seeds are covered in microscopic hair-like fibres. These fibres attract and trap water, forming a loose gel with up to nine times the original volume of the chia seeds. Their unique ability to become gelatinous when soaked in liquid aids digestion and slows the absorption of nutrients while also creating new way to create texture in recipes.
