Organic chia seeds
You will no longer be able to spend biological chia seeds once you have discovered how good they are for you and easy to use! When they are dry, they do not taste much, but when they are soaked, they absorb the liquid and become fleshy and sweet. They are added very well to salt and sweet meals. These tiny black beads (similar to poppy seeds) can be eaten whole, ground or tempered in a liquid (milk, water, juice). These seeds are also versatile and nutrients. Always have this delicious product in your pantry!
Health benefits:an exceptional nutritional value!
This is what a portion of an ounce of chia seeds contains:4.4 grams of protein, 5 grams of omega-3 fatty acids and 11 grams of fiber. They also contain a considerable amount of manganese, phosphorus and calcium. The CHIA is currently under study, whether it could naturally treat type 2 diabetes, thanks to its ability to slow down digestion. Its gelatinous texture, when the seeds are added to liquid, can help prevent peaks of sugar in the blood.
Culinary trick:Garnished, mixed, gelatin!
Chia seeds retain their nutritional qualities if they are consumed entire, unlike flax seeds. Put in your salads, cereals, yogurt and even your pancake or waffle mixtures. You can also grind to use them in your smoothies and green juices. One of our favorite ways to use the chia is in the pudding. When the liquid is absorbed by the seeds, the latter grow (like the pearls of Tapioca) and become gelatinous. For two servings of pudding at the Chia, add a cup of your favorite milk (regular, soy, almond) in a mason pot, add two tablespoon of chia seeds, and honey (or sugar you want) . Cover it, brelaze it and put it in the refrigerator for the night. The next day you will wake up with a rich pudding at the Chia Health, and add bays, fruits, granola and cinnamon.
Keep them in a cool and dry place up to 18 months.
