Chia seeds have a very delicate nutty taste and are well combined with any products in various dishes. They are grinded into flour and added to pastries. Or simply add the grains to the ready cooked meals. Chia seeds dissolve well in water, forming a substance that looks like gelatin. Due to the large number of soluble fibers, this jelly-like mixture creates in our stomach a physical barrier between the carbohydrates and the walls of the stomach, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.
