For the past few months, chia seeds, whether they’re white, black, whole or ground, have been a hot topic on social networks for foodies. Nutritionally speaking, chia seeds, although small, are chock-full of fibre. One tablespoon of chia seeds provides as much fibre as 2 slices of whole wheat bread (around 4 g). Because the fibre is soluble, it expands and absorbs liquids. This creates a mucilaginous coating, or gel texture, which comes in handy in the kitchen. Chia seeds also contain omega-3 fats, antioxidants, calcium, iron and vitamin C.
