When should I add chia gel to my Blast?

Hello! I have learned so much about the benefits of chia seeds and chia gel. When using chia gel in my NutriBlast, should I add it at the beginning and extractor blade or should I wait and stir it in at the end to preserve the gel consistency? Which works better for achieving the best nutritious results? Thanks.

The chia gel is actually just chia seeds that have been soaked in a liquid. You will get the same reaction if you put chia seeds in a NutriBlast and allow it to sit for a little while. This is why the NutriBlast gets thicker when you use chia seeds.

That being said. You can add the gel in either before or after - the same benefits will be achieved either way! If using plain chia seeds, add those before Blasting so it gives them time to gelatinize.

I didn't know they made chia gel! Thanks for sharing this in the forum! :)
I had been adding chia seeds directly to my blasts but now I let the seeds soak in liquid for about 10 minutes before I blast. It really thickens up the blast and I love it for my fruity dessert blasts. It can get really thick though if you let it sit around!!
