What are Chia seeds?
Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) have become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. Hailing from a species of flowering plant in the mint family, chia seeds are native to areas of Mexico and Guatemala but are commonly cultivated in many areas in North and South America.
Chia Seeds Benefits:
Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They’re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
They are high in antioxidants that help protect the delicate fats in the seeds.
Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. This gives them the ability to absorb 10–12 times their weight in water. Fiber also has various beneficial effects on health. Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods. Protein is the most weight loss friendly macronutrient and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings.
How to Use Chia Seeds:
These Organic Chia seeds are easy to prepare and are often added to porridge or smoothies. Add soaked seeds to yogurt, cereal, and muffin recipes, or sprinkle on a salad. They are also delicious stirred through warm oatmeal. Chia sprouts can be used like any salad green or sprout. Try adding them to soups or stews as a natural thickening agent.
