Sana Chia in Water






In a small glass of water with at least 8 oz of water, add two and a half tea spoons of Sana Chia (this is about 15 grams of chia, or ½ an ounce) and stir.

When you add the chia seeds to the water, most of the seeds will float. The idea is to sink and wet the chia in the water, and to keep the seeds from gelling together, but rather for them to individually “swim” in the water. As soon as the chia gets wet, it will start to grow a layer of gel outside (soluble fiber). You want to stir the seeds and separate them from the walls of the glass so as to end up with swollen seeds swirling inside the water. This process takes about 2 to 3 minutes.

The longer you keep the Sana Chia in the water the more water the chia will absorb. Therefore, if you leave chia in any liquid over night, you may end up with a denser chia gel. The texture will depend on the amount of liquid you left the chia in and the time the seeds were soaked. It will range from a watery drink to a thick gelatin. This chia gelatin can be transformed into fruit jelly, pudding, Slurpee, and other fun chia mixtures.
