Jam of raspberries and chia seeds is a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional jam. It combines the sweet and juicy taste of raspberries with the health benefits of chia seeds.

Raspberries are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and dietary fiber. These small fruits can contribute to a healthy immune system, digestive health and blood pressure.

Chia seeds are a source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein and dietary fiber. They also have the ability to absorb moisture, giving them a jelly-like texture. This helps thicken the jam without the use of excessive sugar or pectin.
