So, what is chiafrø?

Chia seeds, also known as "chiafrø" in Danish, are tiny black and white seeds that come from the flowering plant Salvia hispanica. These seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and are packed with nutrients such as fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. Chia seeds are incredibly versatile and can be easily incorporated into a variety of dishes, including smoothies, yogurt, oatmeal, salads, and baked goods. They are also an excellent vegan alternative to eggs in recipes due to their ability to absorb water and form a gel-like consistency. In addition to their nutritional benefits, chia seeds may also aid in weight loss, improve heart health, and reduce inflammation.
