The tiny and humble chia seed has become a star player in the health food scene in recent years, rising to superfood status and becoming a big part of healthy diets everywhere.

Chia seeds are exceptionally high in fibre, fatty acids, protein, and minerals. They look very much like poppy seeds but act like tapioca, swelling up and turning gelatinous when soaked in liquid. This unique quality makes chia seeds great for making no-cook pudding, jelling low-sugar jams, replacing eggs, and more tricks that come in especially handy in raw and vegan cooking.
