I just ran across some mentions of using Chia Seed Slurry in baking gluten-free items to help retain moisture and add some elasticity.

After searching I have found few recipes for anything like this was wondering if any of you had tried it already.. ?

I've seen it in stores under a brand name that starts with S and ends with -alba. That might give you more recipe possibilities. Googling that brand name plus recipes slurry produces 1,000 hits; unfortunately, the admin won't allow the name of that brand onto this site, so the link I tried to provide is useless.

Hope this helps; no, I haven't tried it.

I use Lame Advertisement seeds on a daily basis. It's loaded with omega 3's and fiber, naturally gluten free. You can grind it in a coffee grinder or use the seeds whole. (These are the same seeds I believe that are in Chia pets!) I bought 16 oz for around 20.00 at a vitamin store. I have seen them at Whole foods but they were located near the rice/pasta section of the store. I read about them in the book by Christopher McDougall -Born to Run and decided to try them.

Thank you both, I cannot have the whole seeds (Diverticulitis is a problem for me) so I am interested in using the slurry to help in baked goods, they make it sound as if it helps in gluten-free baking.
