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.

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.

Much better value to buy these on amazon than the high street and the quality is good. Lasts a while and helps with glycaemic control. A table spoon over my cereal in the mornings is all I use it for.

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.

By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Jan. 2014
"Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, grown in Mexico dating back to Mayan and Aztec cultures. "Chia" means strength, and folklore has it that these cultures used the tiny black and white seeds as an energy booster. That makes sense, as chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. ". WebMD

Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds . One ounce or about 2 tablespoons is the recommended daily dose. The mild, nutty flavor of chia seeds makes them easy to add to foods and beverages. I sprinkle on cereal, sauces, vegetables, rice dishes, or yogurt or mixed into drinks and baked goods. They can also be mixed with water and made into a gel.

From what I have read there is NO research that shows chia seeds can help you lose weight. The thought is that chia seeds expands your stomach, giving you the feeling of fullness. It does not seem to hurt, so go for it.

This is a very reputable brand, so I trust them to provide the best product. This is a very good purchase for the price.

Great quality seeds and a good price compared to other high street health food shops. Great as an aid to slimming as they bulk up and make you feel full but also have the bonus of been very nutritious. Highly recommend

I first heard about these when I read Christopher McDougall’s book Born to Run where they were presented as some sort of Superfood! To be honest at that point I had no idea they even existed so promptly typed in the magical words into Amazon and was presented with a myriad of options from various sellers. I went for this particular option due to the best combination of favourable reviews and price. They come in re-sealable foil packaging and fairly small dark coloured grains. The way to consume them is to leave a teaspoon in a small cup of water for around 6 hours, or overnight in my case and then either drink the water, which is more like a paste with seeds by that stage, or pour it over your porridge. In terms of health benefits, I am sure there are plenty but I personally haven’t noticed anything visible or markedly different after using these for a period. But that is not to say the benefits are not there, so I will continue use them due to all the nutrients they contain.
