Product description

Product Description

The safety of Chia seeds when used in bread at a maximum of 5% has been confirmed by the EFSA in its opinion adopted onMarch 13, 2009 (EFSA, 2009). Chia seeds are rich in: Calcium Omega3 Antioxidants and amino acids In addition, they can be used to help with weight loss. They have very few calories and contain no gluten. Chia seeds are very flexible and can be eaten in a variety of ways: Sprouted Whole/crushed - add to any food (hot or cold) for texture, sprinkle on salads or cereal. They can also be used in baking or as a thickening agent. Crushed seeds will release the most Omega3. Chia Gel - chia seeds can be combined with water (or any liquid) to produce a gel-like consistency. This can be eaten/drunk as it is, or added to foods. Smoothies can be made with 50-70% chia gel or added to any creamy/liquid foods (puddings, dressings, jelly etc). To use as a thickening agent when you’re cooking, start with 1-2 tablespoons of whole seeds and stir thoroughly. Then turn down the heat and wait for a couple of minutes to the chia to take effect. How to make Chia gel: Use 1 part seeds and 9 parts water. Put the water in a clean container and slowly stir in the seeds. Wait 5 min then stir again. Wait 10 min then stir for the last time. The gel lasts up to 14 days in the fridge.

I have bought this item several times and have been very satisfied. This time I received the item on 5th March 2015 and the best before date on it is 3rd April 2015. I am very unhappy about this as it takes us over 2 months to finish a packet!
I noticed the date after I had opened it. Buyer beware!

I wouldn't be without Chia Seeds since trying them for the first time a few months ago. A powerhouse of anti-oxidants and so easy to incorporate into your diet - Anti-cancer and give me so much energy its unreal.

I've just uploaded an image of my Chia Seed Pudding - made with Chia Seeds, 100% Cocoa Powder and fresh full-fat milk. Its delicious! and a must for chocolate lovers.

Being able to buy in 1kg bags is great, never going to run out and a competitive price with delivery to my door. The seller was great! Delivered so quickly :)

Resealable package to keep them fresh and dry.

Invaluable for health and energy benefits. Worth every penny.

I sprinkle a Tbsp on Weetabix with hot milk and stir it in.
Sprinkle a couple Tbsp into soups and casseroles.
Make Chia Jelly

Lots of ways to enjoy it!

There are products which have 'superfood' stamped on them, chia however ought to have 'uber-super-ultra-mega food' stamped on the front of it from what I've learned.

I first learned about Chia through Christopher McDougall's 'Born to Run'. It was the thing which most captured my attention even though the whole book is packed full of fascinating stuff. As soon as he started to reveal a bit more about chia I had two thoughts: 1. "I've got to get some chia & try this for myself!" & 2. "I must know more!"

First thing I discovered is that there isn't much written on chia. Secondly I discovered that chia isn't all that common, almost nowhere sells it & nobody knows what the heck it is! So when the experts say it's the best kept natural health food secret there is, they're not exaggerating. However you can count on amazon to sell just about anything & everything. The bag featured here is actually much larger than it looks & will go further than you expect!

Chia was in it's heyday around the 12th Century among the Aztecs & the Mayans. It was considered a sacred food because, without all the scientific research that has been done on chia in recent years, they managed to perceive that even small quantities of this food gave the eater energy, stamina & good health.

If you are au fait with chia knowledge, you might have perhaps come across it in 'Born to Run' or articles relating to the Tarahumara. The Tarahumara are a Native American tribe who know the secrets of this desert food & managed to compete in a 200 mile Ultra-Marathon. They not only competed but took most of the top spot finishing positions, despite competing against much younger competitors who have all of today's modern running gadgetry, diet & training advice etc.

Have yet to determine whether they do anything for my health, but they are very easy to use. Incidentally, eating a spoonful can take your mind of other snacks, as you keep finding them lurking in your teeth - not as annoying as it sounds, as the occupation of sucking them out takes ones mind of eating something else.

I've ordered Chia seeda twice now from Whole Foods. Both times they have been delivered promptly. The first batch was spot on and as expected. The second batch has had little bits of grit in it and also I don't know if it is bad seeds, but occasionally you bite into something which kind of tastes like soil and spoils the taste of whatever you've mixed the chia seeds with. I may try another seller next time as I don't really want this to happen again.......but it may just be the batch I recieved. I don't know.
