Chia seeds, originally used by the ancient Aztec culture as a food source, are prized for being high in omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients. Our Home Farm Herbery Organic Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are extremely high in Omega-3 and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Organic chia seeds can be eaten raw as a dietary fiber and omega-3 supplement. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.
Chia Seeds help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss since they reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper and you feel fuller faster: They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel. These are also great for athletes because the "chia gel" can hydrate the body. Plus there is evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure. Omega-3: They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
Lots of benefits for diabetics because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.
They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don't need to be ground up.
They can be eaten raw as they have a nice "nutty" flavor or they can be soaked in fruit juice as they do in Mexico where they call this "chia fresca". We recommend two daily doses of about 20 g each (1.5 ounces total).
