In Asia you often see basil seeds in drinks and dessert, here they are still somewhat unknown. The sweet basil seeds are black in color and come from the lemon basil.
Before use, you have to put them in water for a while so that some can expand into what looks like frogspawn. The small jelly, transparent balls still have a black dot in the middle. Scoop them out of the water before using them in your drink or dessert.
The basil seeds are said to be good for lowering cholesterol levels and help a treatment of constipation and diabetes. They are also high in minerals and fiber. Also a good alternative to chia seeds, universally healthy and good for our body and health.
