In liquid, the seeds form a jelly-like substance (they can absorb 12 times their weight in water), so its a good substitute for flax seeds, a nice addition to smoothies, and a great way to get through a long morning of teaching or practicing without feeling faint and hangry. We mix it with ginger and lemon for a nourishing drink; or with nut milk, seeds, coconut yogurt and dates for a satisfying breakfast.
