How To Enjoy:
Soak Chia Seeds in water/liquids, stir and let sit for some time (5 minutes or more - the longer the better). The hydrated seeds will expand in size and become somewhat gelatinous - better for digestion.
1) Add 1 tablespoon seeds to 1 big cup of water, juice or beverages. Stir well to break up any lumps, let sit for a few minutes or soak overnight. Stir before drinking.
2) Add seeds to soups, salads, oatmeal. Let seeds absorb water/liquid before consuming.
3) Bake seeds into breads and cakes.
4) Chia gel (mix chia seeds and small amount of water – 1 portion seed to 4 or 6 portions water – stir and let mixture sit for a while-15 to 30min- till it becomes gel) – stir chia gel into salad dressings, porridges, deserts.
Recommended daily intake: 2 tablespoons or 15g, any time in the day/night. Store opened pack in cool, dry place.
Children to take 1/2 (half) the recommended serving of adults.
Note: As Chia Seeds have a natural blood-thinning effect and can lower blood pressure, it may not be a suitable daily supplement for those with a history of low blood pressure.
