Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are known as an energy food and for keeping hunger away, they make a great food to travel with.
Unlike most chia seeds on the market, our seeds are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers (they are not currently organically certified, but they will be soon).
When soaked, chia seeds form a gel in a similar way to flax seeds. They can be made into milk or sprouted like alfalfa seeds.
Chia seeds are very high in omega 3 essential fatty acids, plus a good source of antioxidants and protein (16% protein, including all 9 essential amino acids). They are also a very good source of calcium, phosphorus and manganese, plus a source of other minerals including zinc.
We also have 500g bags of chia seeds.
Recipe: Chia Cream
3 tablespoons chia seeds soaked in 300ml water (give them a stir after adding the water otherwise they clump together and donít all get soaked.)
5 fresh dates (if using dried dates, soak them first)
5 tablespoons lucuma powder
1 tablespoon algarroba (or mesquite)
ľ tsp vanilla
dash reishi mushroom powder (optional)
Soak the chia seeds for an hour (or longer). Add to blender and blend to create chia milk. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Makes a delicious cream with many uses including serving with fresh fruit, using on raw cakes, etc.
