Ch-ch-ch-chia! Potentially the best commercial of the 90s, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about you must go watch this video immediately. If you are asking yourself if these seeds are the same magical seeds as the pottery pet that grows the answer is; yes! These seeds have a come long way in the past 20 years, so much so that they are one of the hottest superfoods in town.
Isolated, chia seeds are quite gritty and I personally don’t recommend them as something to munch on unless you want to spend your day with little black treats in your teeth. With that being said, what makes these seeds so magical is that they can absorb up to 4 times their weight in water making them a great thickening agent for recipes, additions to smoothies, or a delicious pudding alternative! Nutritionally speaking, chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and fibre, and since they provide a gel-like texture when soaked, they are great for digestive health too.Print
