A plant-based resource ideal for a healthy snack.
Chia seeds (salvia hispanica L.) are part of the mint family and were originally cultivated by the Aztecs in Central America. They knew just how special this plant was and used its seeds in a range of high-quality foods every day.
Traditional uses of chia
Chia seeds were originally used raw and cooked in Mexican cuisine, e.g. as a tasty addition to a salad dressing or as chia gel
(One part chia seeds to 7 parts water left for 20 minutes and stirred regularly).
Traditional drink: the pinole. To make this a drink, simply add two spoonfuls of chia seeds to fruit or vegetable juice. Leave for 10 minutes and stir regularly. The perfect healthy snack. In the USA, these popular seeds are found in muesli, spreads, yoghurt and fresh fruit salads.
