Battle of Super Seeds: Difference Between Sabja Seeds and Chia Seeds

As chia seeds receive global popularity, many Indian natives often get confused over the difference between chia and sabja seeds aka basil seeds.

Both are nutritious seeds, aid in weight loss and come from same family of mint.

These seeds may look similar to some extent, however their nutritional properties are different.

Let’s spot the differences!

Soaking in water

Chia seeds take time to absorb water. It has the unique ability to gel by absorbing over 10 times their weight. Sabja seeds swell up within seconds of being mixed with water

Taste

Chia seeds do not have any taste of its own and can easily be incorporated in any kind of dish. Sabja seeds have a mild flavour of basil and impart the same to drinks and desserts. ( we personally prefer the taste of sabja seeds)

Consumption as Raw Seeds

Chia seeds can be consumed raw or soaked. Sabja seeds can be consumed only after soaking.

Health Benefits

Chia seeds are a good source of proteins and Omega 3s. The naturally low-carb and high-fibre food helps in digestion. Chia seeds are highly recommended for weight-loss. It Promotes energy and endurance and also helps in stabilizing blood sugar levels.

Sabja seeds are one of the best body coolant, hence are highly recommended during summer. It has a soothing effect on the stomach and hence useful to combat acidity. Sabja seeds are an excellent source of vitamins and Iron. These seeds help promote healthy skin and hair growth and act as a detoxifying agent and helps to cleanse the blood.

As both seeds are nutritious, we believe rotating them in your puddings is the best way to have them both. You can substitute chia seeds for sabja seeds and vice versa for your nutritious puddings.
