Not only is Chia highly nutritious, it’s also incredibly versatile. These small seeds contain fibre, protein, & omega-3 fatty acids, providing good digestion & energy throughout the day.
But unlike most Superfoods, Chia tastes pretty bland by itself especially when consumed “dry”. This makes them the perfect addition to other dishes or ingredients. They are also unique in texture because of how much they expand when wet. In fact, Chia turns gelatinous when submerged in liquid and can hold an unbelievable amount of that liquid; up to 10x their dry weight.
