WHAT IS CHIA SEED?

Chia seed is an ancient super food that is currently experiencing a glorious renaissance . It is a member of the sage family (Salvia Hispanica). The little black and white seeds were once a staple of the Incan, Mayan and Aztec cultures, along with the Native Americans of the southwest.

“Chia” is actually the Mayan word for strength.The seeds were used by these ancient cultures as mega-energy food, especially for their running messengers, who would carry a small pouch of it with them. Chia has been called ‘Indian Running Food’ and gives an incredibly ‘sustaining’ surge of energy. I’ve definitely noticed for myself the ‘running energy’ that chia seems to impart. If I eat chia, then run later that day, my endurance and ability to run further is greatly enhanced – pretty impressive stuff…

The chia we sell in our online store is imported from Mexico and is certified organic. In Mexico they say that one tablespoon of chia seeds can sustain a person for 24 hours. Chia also happens to TASTE great, looks cute (like tiny dinosaur eggs) and is ready to eat really quickly – besides which it has an off-the-scale nutritional profile…

WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO EAT CHIA?

Chia seeds are said to have:

2 times the protein of any other seed or grain
5 times the calcium of milk, plus boron which is a trace mineral that
helps transfer calcium into your bones
2 times the amount of potassium as bananas
3 times the reported antioxidant strength of blueberries
3 times more iron than spinach
copious amounts of omega 3 and omega 6, which are essential fatty acids…
They are a complete source of protein, providing all the essential amino acids in an easily digestible form. They are also a fabulous source of soluble fibre.

Like flax, chia is highly ‘hydrophilic‘ – the seeds absorb water and create a mucilaginous gel. They can hold 9-12 times their weight in water and they absorb it very rapidly – in under 10 minutes.

Antioxidants
One advantage of chia is that because it has such a high antioxidant content, the seeds stay stable for much longer, whereas flax, for example, may turn rancid. Chia seeds can easily be stored dry for 4-5 years without deterioration in flavour, odour or nutritional value. You can substitute chia in any recipe that calls for flax.

Mild Taste
The taste of chia is very mild and pleasant. That means you can easily combine it with other foods without changing the taste dramatically. People add chia to their sauces, bread batters, puddings, smoothies and more. The flavour is retained, plus masses more nutrition is added

The ‘Dieter’s Dream Food’
Chia has been called a dieter’s dream food because when added to foods, it bulks them up, displacing calories and fat without diluting the flavour. Thus, someone can eat a typical serving, yet only consume about half the calories they might have eaten, because the food has been bulked up with chia. PLUS, the eater gets a bellyful of nutrient-rich super-food goodness, which hydrates and sustains them – magic

WHAT ARE SOME OTHER BENEFITS OF EATING CHIA?

Provides energy
Boosts strength
Bolsters endurance
Levels blood sugar
Induces weight loss
Aids intestinal regularity
Sugar Absorption
Chia slows the impact of sugars on the system, if eaten together. Chia gel creates a physical barrierbetween carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, which slows the conversion of carbs into sugar. That means the energy from the food is released steadily, resulting in more endurance. This is clearly of great benefit to diabetics in particular. It also means that I can combine chia with super-sweet tastes like apple juice and not get super-spiked

Absorb and Retain Water
Due to the exceptional water-absorption quality of chia, it can help you prolong hydration and retainelectrolytes, especially during exertion.

Easy to Digest
Whole, water-soaked chia seeds are easily digested and absorbed. Their tiny dinosaur-egg-like shells break down quickly. They feel light in the body, yet energising. Their nutrients can be quickly assimilatedinto the body.

Intestinal Broom
Chia seeds bulk up, then work like an incredible digestive broom, sweeping through your intestinal tract, helping to dislodge and eliminate old accumulated waste in the intestines. Many people find their stools also become more regular once they eat chia.

Inexpensive
Chia is a very reasonably priced, concentrated food. Our 1lb bags cost . 1/3 cup of dry chia seeds (2 ounces) makes about 17 ounces of chia gel. This costs about . Depending on how much gel you use, those 17oz will likely last, on average, about four days. That is about 25 cents a day.

Versatile
Chia can be used in so many kinds of recipes – savoury, sweet – it works with anything. You might want to try them in salad dressings, cookie mixtures, smoothies, crackers, ice creams, juices and so on.

  1. Just a warning for people thinking I'll eat some dry seeds then drink water? A man ended up in Emergency Department for doing just this ….the seeds swelled up in his throat and blocked his airways! Chia seeds MUST BE SOAKED for at least two minutes before consuming!

  2. Please stop the robot voice. I am never going to listen to channels that can't be bothered to use real people! Hate the voice!!

  3. Glad they gave some recipes here, and reminded people to start SLOWLY with consuming chia seeds…you need to build up to the amount first recommended, not dive right in…then you can add more chia to your diet! Good video with important info!
