The chia seed was used as part of a staple diet in South America and has now been rediscovered and made its way into Europe. It is known as a "superfood" and a "runners food", due to its ability to make the stomach feel full, and also because of the concentrated amounts of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid, fibre, protein and minerals.

Chia seeds can be sprinkled onto other foods (such as cereals) as a nutritional supplement. When toasted or used in baking, they have a nutty flavour. Chia seeds help to keep you full, because they expand within the stomach. This makes them great for people who are on a weight-loss diet. You can see how easily they expand by adding water to chia seeds: they form a gel-like consistency. This takes a while to digest, and therefore helps to keep hunger at bay.

Directions

  • Chia seeds are ready to eat.
  • Add chia seeds to any meal in order to make it more filling. Chia seeds expand and create a feeling of fullness.
  • A handful of chia seeds will help to keep hunger at bay!
  • Runners eat a handful of chia seeds before setting off, to help slow the digestion and thus prolong the release of energy to the body.
  • Sprinkle onto cereals or into salads.
  • Eat chia seeds as part of a seed mix.
  • Bake chia seeds into bread to make a seeded loaf. Some people soak the seeds beforehand, but this is not absolutely necessary.
  • Add chia seeds to smoothies for a thicker consistency, and to make them more filling.
