Chia is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and is grown commercially for its seed. These seeds yield 25–30% extractable oil, including a-linolenic acid.
Mottle-colored with brown, gray, black, and white, chia seeds absorb up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked, which helps maintains satiety.
With more Omega-3’s than flaxseed, just one ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, manganese and phosphorous.
Chia may be added to functional foods and beverages including smoothies, cereals, energy bars, yogurt, tortillas and baked products such as bread.*
