Features

History

The Chia seed also known as Salva hispanica, comes from the Salvia plan and is of the same family as mint (Lamiaceae). Chia is originally from Mexico's central valleys. 
Cultivated by the Aztecs and Mayans, the chia seed was an integral part of their daily diet. 

Chia, signifying "Strength" in Mayan, was once used in religious ceremonies and consumed before intense activities. The Aztecs believed it gave them mystical, almost supernatural energy and power.


Culinary Uses

It is not necessary to grind the chia seeds to enjoy its benefits. It is recommended that you chew your food thoroughly to break down its nutrients. 

It is incredibly easy to eat the chia seed! Combined with smoothies, cereal and yogourt, chia seed’s soaking action enables it to produce chlorophyll and thus providing a higher nutrient content. Liquids also enable the seed to bind all the ingredients together. 

Try it in salad dressings, muffins, soups, salads, sauces and so much more. The taste of chia seed is very light so you can incorporate it into your meals without altering the taste of your dish. 

Excellent tickening agent, chia seeds are excellent when added to your soups, pie crusts and breads. Chia seeds can also be used to replace eggs in recipes by incorporating 1 tablespoon of chia for each egg. For best results, use of ground chia seeds. 

1 tbsp = 1 egg


NOTE : It is best to soak 1 tbsp of chia seeds in 3 tbsps of water for approximately 30 minutes before using it in your recipes, more specifically breads and muffins.

Preservation

Can be preserved in a cool, dry cupboard protected from light and humidity for up to 24 months.
