CHIA SEED, WHITE - Kosher/Gluten Free

CHIAWH-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 fiber, 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 extremely tiny, about the size of a poppy seed with a slight nutty flavor.  Chia Seeds are able to absorb over ten times their weight in fluid in less than ten minutes 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 and add pureed fruit for a quick jam style spread.  Cook with jasmine or basmati rice and coconut milk for a sweet and thick rice pudding.  Pour a little in your fruit smoothie for a power boost.

Ingredient Statement:

Chia Seeds.

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 sees into 3 cups lukewarm water.  Let rest 5 minutes and whisk again.  Cover and refrigerate the gel for up to 2 weeks.
