Mixed Berry Chia Jam (Sugar-free!) Print 7 LikeDislike By Cardwell Beach My family has quit sugar. But we see that as no reason to miss out on jam. You might wonder how jam works without sugar and added pectin and other fancy bits and bobs. Chia seeds give the jam it’s jelly-like texture and provide a source of fibre and omega-3 fatty acids. Without sugar, the jam doesn’t keep as long. But that’s the perfect reason to eat more of it! This chia jam makes a delicious topping to yogurt, muesli, porridge and pancakes.
