CHIA SEED, BLACK - Kosher/Gluten Free

CHIABL-5

Description:

Most of us are familiar with the little "Chia Pets" but lesser known are the nutritious seeds used to grow them. This high energy endurance food contains the highest plant source of Omega-3 on the planet!  High in calcium, magnesium and iron and loaded with more antioxidants than blueberries, this tiny seed supports healthy heart function, joint mobility, immune functioning and cellular energy.  Chia Seeds are tiny, about the size of a poppy seed with a slight nutty flavor.  What makes them amazing is their ability to absorb over ten times their weight in fluid which makes them perfect for weight loss, hydration and for stabilizing the absorption of sugar into the blood stream. This makes them an ideal choice for Diabetics and those looking for Gluten Free options.  Mix Chia Seeds with your favorite juice or with agua fresca for a refreshing and nutritious drink.  Great in smoothies, on cereal, in pudding or it can be sprinkled onto salads, yogurt or granola.

Ingredient Statement:

Chia Seeds.

Puree your favorite fruit and add to Chia Seeds and a bit of juice for a delicious jam/jelly.  Add to your favorite smoothie or use on top of your cereal, granola or salad.  Chia Seed is perfect as a thickening agent for soups and stews and is delicious in health bars and pudding.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

No preparation necessary.  To form a thickener or Chia gel, mix water with the Chia seeds at a ratio of 9:1.  Wisk 1/3 cup Chia seeds into 3 cups lukewarm water.  Let rest 5 minutes and whisk again.  Cover and refrigerate the gel for up to 2 weeks.
