Chia seeds are a versatlise superfood, and can be added to cereals, yoghurt, fruit, smoothies, juices, baking mixes and even can be used to make "vegan eggs."
Ways to enjoy
Light in flavour and sprinkled whole or ground, chia seeds can be added to cereals, yoghurt, fruit, salads, smoothies, juices and stir fries to increase nutrient intake. Super absorbent, they can also be included in baking mixes, protein balls, chia puddings and to make vegan “eggs”: A ratio of one tablespoon of chia mixed with three tablespoons of water creates a mix providing the moisture and binding properties of one egg.
Origins of chia
An ancient superfood, chia seeds originate from the highlands of Central and South America where they first sustained the Aztecs as a dietary staple and energy booster. Thriving in formidable, diverse conditions, chia abounds with the nutrients needed to withstand the extreme heat and drought characteristic of its natural environment.
