Hello - does anyone know if chia seeds are okay for Blood type O people and the 'hunter' type? just bought some seeds (grown in Western Australia), I think they were originally grown in Mexico. They are high in many nutrients incl omega 3. thanks.   aussielady5757   (Australia)

aussielady5757, here is a recipe I have for Chia Seed Milk:

4 T chia seed
2 T walnuts
2 T raw sesame tahini
1 T agave
dash vanilla
5 C water

(Substitute compliant ingredients if needed)

In a glass jar, soak seeds & walnuts overnite in 3 C water. Pour into blender jar, add 1 C water, blend at medium speed. With blender still running, add tahini, agave and vanilla, then add 1 more C water.

Chia milk is rich in EFA's & protein. Because of the soaking, it is also rich in enzymes. Because of the antioxidants, it will keep well in your frig ( one week )
(Last paragraph is poster's comments)

the chia milk sounds good. as a gatherer can't have tahini (seasame) butter. think almond butter would work?

Some people use almond butter instead of ground almonds for making almond milk.

For my smoothies, I grind the chia seeds in a little coffee/seed grinder before adding to the blender.  It makes the smoothies nicely thick and creamy.

Does anyone know how long Chia seeds last? I've had some in my pantry
for a bit of time now, and the company has not responded to my question.
I guess it wouldn't hurt to go out and get a fresh bag though.

most of my fruit this time of year is dried or frozen. the stuff at the store is mostly off limets or just plain gross looking. besides i like the mix of jelly and crunchy texturs.   insadintly they make a great sub for geleton for the O's who should not have geleton.

How do they differ from flax and hemp seeds

Taste, flavor, texture . . it's like comparing apples to oranges.

Chia gels when it comes in contact with liquid, absorbing many times its' weight in water.  It is a gentle bulking food in the gut whereas flax can be irritating to some with IBS.  When it is ground, it's simply marvelous in smoothies.  Although many people, including Lola, use the seeds whole.  They are tiny, like poppy seeds.

The historic use of chia as a staple energy food is legendary.

For centuries, Native Indian Peoples in the Americas have used chia seed as a staple food. Aztec warriors subsisted on chia seeds during battles and hunting expeditions. Indians of the Southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon of chia seeds during a 24-hour march. Indians ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean to trade turquoise for shells, carrying only a pouch of chia seed for nourishment.

It looks like Chia seeds are neutral for both Warrior and Teacher...

I wonder if I could use ground chia as a gluten replacement if I make a yeast based, brown rice bread...?  Has anyone tried it? Or have a recipe for gluten-free brown rice bread?

Ground flax has been used for egg replacement in baking.  I don't see any reason why ground chia would not serve that same function.

Maybe this recipe for gluten-free brown rice bread would work for your genotype. It comes from the book Good Food, Gluten Free by Hilda Cherry Hills. This recipe doesn't use chia seeds, though.

Rice and Soya Bread

1 pound (2 cups) brown rice
3/4 cup soybeans (I wonder if great northern beans would work here?)
2 tablespoons sunflower seed oil (you might need to substitute this)
1 teaspoon molasses
3 cups warm water
1-2 teaspoons dried yeast

Grind rice and soybeans finely; place in a large bowl.
Stir in oil.
Dissolve molasses in 1 1/4 cups warm water in small bowl.
Sprinkle yeast on surface.
Leave till frothed over.
Add contents to large bowl.
Mix well with wooden spoon adding 1 3/4 cups warm water to make thick batter.
Pour into two 2 pound bread pans.
Cover and leave at average room temperature till loaves almost reach the tops of the pans.
Bake for 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Turn out on rack to cool.
Do not eat till 12 hours old.
Cut carefully with very sharp knife.
Putting in a warm place to rise often results in the collapse of the middle when put in the oven.

To make your own soy flour with dried soybeans, you have to "prepare" the beans first before grinding them.  Here are two ways to do that.

I have both dark and light chia seed.  Make drinks with both of them;  not much difference once they have soaked up liquid.

I've heard that chia seeds have a very long shelf life, though I'm not sure how long that means.  Probably similar to dry beans.  

They are a good egg substitute and also make good dehydrator crackers.  I don't think they can stand alone for gluten but, like flax seeds, should improve the results if most gluten free baking.

Hi Cristina!
Your baking always makes my mouth water!!!

I thought of you today..."CRIKEY CADEL".......
An Australian has made history today by being the first to win the Tour de France!

Cadel Evans, 33 or 34 years old, could've won last year but fractured his elbow during the race. He came in 2nd in 2008.

Chia absorbs water on a one part chia to six parts water ratio.  I soak 1 teaspoon chia in 1 ounce water.  Shake the chia and water in a jar, let sit for 15 minutes, shake again, and then refrigerate.

welcome to you...  It is good that you ask questions.  Chia seed is not rated per the Blood Type.  You can see the entire list of rated foods here:  http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

Of the Genotypes a B can be - per the book:
Nomad - Chia seed is a Superfood.

Explorer - Chia is Diamond Superfood, which means it is good for weight-loss.

Gatherer - Chia is Diamond Superfood.

Based on the Genotype ratings, I'd say it would be good for a B to eat Chia seeds.

I love to put them in cookies, yogurt and my oatmeal. Glad I discovered these.

Has Chia seed been checked for its compatibility with the different blood types?
