The chia replaces the gelatin in store-bought jams. Chia absorbs water and takes on a jelly-like form which creates the jam. Chia seeds are so full of amazing health benefits. They may be tiny little seeds but they are an excellent source of omega-3 benefits. Chia seeds also are high in antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium.
This jam tastes so good, spread on literally everything and anything.
