Tips for use
Chia seeds can be consumed as they are, ground up, or made into a gel. To make the gel, soak the chia seeds in 10 times their volume of water. Leave for at least 30 minutes, stirring from time to time to avoid clumps. Great for sprinkling on cereals, muesli, yoghurt or salads. To make “Chia fresca”, a South American drink, mix the chia seeds with water, lemon juice and sugar. Do not consume more than 15g / day. Keep in a cool, dry and dark place.
