The name 'chia', derived from the word 'fat' in the indigenous language, is explained by the fact that chia seed contains a high amount (up to 25%) of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid. The presence of soluble fibre allows the seeds to absorb up to 7 times their volume in water, which gives a feeling of fullness.
Chia seeds are high in fibre and contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 essential fatty acid that helps maintain normal cholesterol levels.
Biotona Organic Chia Seeds can be added to bread and pastries, to breakfast muesli or to lunch and evening salads. Add them to your smoothies in combination with fruit (juice), milk or yoghurt as a snack. When chia seeds are immersed in water, they form a gelatinous substance that can be used as the basis for many recipes.
