Organic Black Chia Seeds
Long ago, the Aztecs relied on chia seeds for energy and nutrition and it is easy to see why. Rich in fiber, protein, antioxidants, and healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, Shiloh Farms Organic Black Chia Seeds have justly earned their designation as a superfood!
Chia seeds are hydrophilic, which means “water loving" - they can absorb 10-12 times their weight in water! When water-logged, chia seeds form a gelatinous substance that is soothing to the digestive tract as well as beneficial in keeping the body hydrated and maintaining electrolyte balance.
To make Chia Gel: Add 1 part chia to 8 to 10 parts water and stir rapidly to mix. Let stand for 5 minutes and mix again. Allow to fully set for about 15 more minutes before using. Use immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
