Chia seeds are one of the most powerful, functional, and nutritious superfoods in the world. The chia seed is an excellent source of fibre, packed with antioxidants, full of protein, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and the richest known plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. They are neutral in flavour and swell up in water. High in fibre 32g per 100g.
Chia seeds have so many wonderful applications, ground up they can be mixed with water as egg replacement, providing binding power for baked goods and are also used for thickening sauces. Or even soak some with almond milk and enjoy with chopped fruit for a delicious chia raw 'porridge'.
