About Organic Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are very flexible and can be eaten in a variety of ways:
- Whole/crushed - add to any food (hot or cold) for texture, sprinkle on salads or cereal. They can also be used in baking or as a thickening agent. Crushed seeds will release the most Omega3.
- Chia Gel - chia seeds can be combined with water (or any liquid) to produce a gel-like consistency. This can be eaten/drunk as it is, or added to foods. Smoothies can be made with 50-70% chia gel or added to any creamy/liquid foods (puddings, dressings, jelly etc).
To use as a thickening agent when you’re cooking, start with 1-2 tablespoons of whole seeds and stir thoroughly. Then turn down the heat and wait for a couple of minutes to the chia to take effect.
How to make Chia gel:
Use 1 part seeds and 9 parts water.
Put the water in a clean container and slowly stir in the seeds.
Wait 5 min then stir again.
Wait 10 min then stir for the last time.
The gel lasts up to 14 days in the fridge.
