What is Chia Seeds?
Chia Seeds are the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the mint family. Chia seeds are oval and grey with black and white spots, having a diameter around 2 millimetres (0.08 in). The seeds are hygroscopic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked and developing a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based foods and beverages a distinctive gel texture. The nutritional make-up of chia seeds, being rich in poly-unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber, makes them especially suited for helping to stabilize blood-sugar levels. Including chia seeds in your diet appears to have cardio-protective benefits, this may be thanks to their poly-unsaturated fat content, high fibre levels and anti-inflammatory properties. Chia seeds are a rich source of minerals, which are known to be beneficial for bone health, including calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. A 25g portion of chia seeds contains approximately 158mg of calcium which makes a significant contribution when compared to the equivalent amount of milk.  Chia seeds make a wonderful healthy creamy pudding/breakfast that is vegan and gluten free.1/4 Cup cacao powder, 3-5 Tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, pinch of salt, vanilla extract. 1 1/2 cups coconut or almond milk, 1/2 cup Chia Seeds.
