An ancient, South American seed with a high content of protein, Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids and soluble fibre, as well antioxidants and trace vitamins and minerals.
Sprinkle chia seed on salads, cereal or muesli or add to bread & muffins and smoothies & juice. Soak the seeds in water (approx. 1 tbsp to ½ cup water) to form a gel that can be added to smoothies, shakes, yoghurt, soups and dressings. This gel is tasteless and slows down the release of carbohydrates in the body, thereby creating a fuller feeling for longer.
There is no nutritional difference between black and white chia seeds.
