Healtheries Black Chia Seeds

Product Overview

Why use Healtheries Black Chia Seeds?

Looking for a hassle-free way to boost the nutrition in your household? Healtheries Black Chia Seeds are tasty, versatile, nutritional powerhouses that are easy to add to cereals, salads, soups, stews, baking, bread, snacks, smoothies and other drinks. Just one tablespoon of these raw super-seeds is packed with omega 3 fatty acids, dietary fibre, calcium and magnesium - which is why we recommend adding one tablespoon per day into your everyday diet.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential to source from the diet because our bodies are unable to produce this healthy fat. It is also important to include good food sources of dietary fibre to support bowel regularity. The minerals calcium and magnesium are needed to support the structure of teeth and bones - plus magnesium also plays an important role in normal nerve and muscle function.

It is said that in ancient times Mayan messengers ran vast distances through Central America consuming only Chia Seeds to keep their strength up. Today, the modern world is starting to rediscover these tiny yet powerful seeds and all the wonderful ways you can add them to your everyday diet.

  • Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of Chia over your salad to add taste and texture.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons of Chia to thicken casseroles, stews, or soups as a substitute for flour or cream. 
  • Add Chia to your bread or baking recipes.
  • To use as an egg substitute, soak 1 Tablespoon of Chia in 3 Tablespoons of water to replace each egg in the recipe. 
  • Chia absorbs water and will thicken to a soft gel the longer they are soaked. Mix 1 Tablespoon of Chia in a glass of water for a natural chia smoothie to help fill you up between meals or snacks - drink the mix straight away and let the Chia work it's magic.
  • To make Chia Juice, soak 3 Tablespoons of Chia in 1 Cup of water overnight. Add 1 Cup of juice in the morning and mix. This is a great way for the kids to enjoy Chia.
