These organic black Chia Seeds have an amazing capacity to absorb fluid. This absorbent property means they are great as a thickener in smoothies, shakes, desserts, sauces etc. As with most nuts, seeds, legumes and grains – you will digest them better and get much more out of them nutritionally if you activate them by soaking overnight in water before use.
Chia meal is perfect to use when you need a smoother texture (i.e. fussy kids!)
