Chia For Sale

Wauchope Rotary is currently selling Chia for $15 per 1kg.

According to Wikipedia Chia is the edible seed of Salvia Hispanica, a flowering plant in the mint family native to Central America.  Being hydrophilic it absorbs up to 12 times its own weight in liquid and when saturated develops a distinctive gel texture.

Chia seeds can be soaked in water and consumed directly or mixed with any kind of juice or milk. Chia seed pudding, similar to tapioca, is made by saturating the chia seed in milk and adding sweetener and flavours such as cocao powder or vanilla essence.  Chia seeds may also be sprinkled or ground up on top of breakfast cereals and muesli or used in smoothies, energy bars and baked goods such as breads, cakes and muffins.
