Small-but-mighty chia seeds are a terrific source of essential nutrients like omega-3s, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. They also pack a serious fiber punch—4 grams per tablespoon—so when you add them to your favorite healthy foods, they’ll help ward off hunger.
The versatile seeds can be blended into smoothies, stirred into oatmeal, used to thicken pudding, or added to yogurt. The gel-like texture when they absorb water is both filling and satisfying.
Linseeds and flaxseeds are the same thing when it comes to buying edibles here is South Africa. Nutritionally they are the same, the only difference can be seen in the plant itself. The confusing comes from the two big English-speaking countries. In the UK, they distinguish between linseed and flax, while in the United States and Canada, they refer to both as flax. As we get more influence from the American language, especially in the food industry, it seems the lines have become blurred.
Linseed is a shorter plant, with lots of branches and lots of seeds. Flaxseed is taller (3 foot) with fewer branches. Therefore, linseed is good for creating oil and flax has longed been used to make linen, rope, and nets. There is even a boat called Flaxland, made completely of flax.
Linseeds are low in carbohydrates, gluten-free, high in protein and very high in fibre. It has a pleasant nutty taste. It can be sprinkled over salads, baked on/in bread, or added to your smoothies.
