Chia seeds readily dissolve into the water, creating a substance that looks like gelatin. It creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and digestive enzymes and slows the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar helping with endurance and metabolic rates, which is beneficial for athletes and others.

Chia seeds can be used for weight loss as they are an appetite suppressant, and Chia gel may be used to replace ingredients such as gelatin and xanthan gum within recipes.

Its hydrophilic property helps to retain moisture and regulate the body’s absorption of nutrients and body fluids more efficiently, including electrolyte balance.

How do you Use it?

Soak chia seeds in water or juices before you eat them. After they’re soaked, chia seeds develop a gelatinous coating which some raw foodists believe help it to move swiftly through the digestive track, thereby improving digestion.

Chia can be used to prepare delicious puddings, smoothies, tortillas and even be used in snacks and main meals as well.

Enjoy Chia Seeds either raw or cooked. Sprinkle a tablespoon of the seeds on salad, cereal, yoghurt, oatmeal or blend it into Smoothies. Add them to baked goods like bread, muffins and health cookies or even make a healthy Chia Seed pudding.

Earth’s Finest Chia Seeds are a great substitute for Eggs in baking as well and the term Chia Eggs is now used, as it’s quite similar in taste and texture.
