Chia Seeds Factsheet

 

Chia seeds - nutritional facts and usage.


  

1. Chia Seeds form a gel when wet.

The secret of chia seeds is that once moistened, they form a thick gel which bulks up meals and makes them more substantial - taking a long time to digest and thus keeping you fuller for longer without adding significant calories. Add to smoothies, sprinkle over breakfast cereals - just a teaspoonful or two is enough.

Try this chia and flax smoothie made with chia seeds, flax seeds, almond milk and lucuma.

  

2. They are high in protein.

Chia seeds are 20% protein, which is comparable to fish. Protein helps you to stay fuller for longer, thus contributing to chia seeds' extraordinary ability to stave off hunger.

  

3. They are high in omega-3 essential oils.

Chia seeds make a great alternative to omega-3 supplements, and a fantastic source of omega oils if you are on a vegetarian or vegan diet.

  

4. Chia Seeds are 33% fibre.

The fibre content of chia seeds, together with the "gel effect" described above, helps to regulate your digestive system.

  

5. They can be used to thicken smoothies

Chia seeds will thicken any smoothie. This simple recipe combines spinach, banana, mango, chia seeds and almond milk for a super filling breakfast smoothie!

  

6. They can be added to bread, cakes and many other recipes.

Chia seeds can be used as a direct substitute for eggs in some baking recipes! This recipe combines chia seeds, almond milk, cinnamon and peanut butter to create these delicious fluffy vegan pancakes! Check out the full recipe here...

  

7. They can be made into puddings.

When you add chia seeds to water they create a gel. This gel is the perfect base to create puddings! It allows you to create a creamy texture without adding milk or gelatin!

They can also be made into porridge, in a similar manner.

  

8. You can just eat chia seeds by the handful.

Eat a handful of chia seeds before running or exercising - they make a filling snack!

If you eat chia seeds on their own, always accompany them with a glass of water for best results.
