I've used it - only as a porridge - but it was nice to my blood sugar.

I too have used it and it didn't do any bad thing to my BG Nanlou. Some recipes call for it.

I use it as a breakfast hot cereal when not using flax or hemp in that manner.

They spike very late...treat like cereals and test between 3-4 hours. They may also cause you gastric problems....who needs laxative with chia seeds around.

I tried to make a sports gel out of them and didn't work out so well.
