Chia Seeds


Salvia hispanica

Chia is a flowering plant in the mint family. Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber; the nutritional content found in chia seeds is similar to flax or sesame. Chia seeds are a great baking substitute for vegans who don’t eat eggs. Chia seeds are extremely hydrophilic, making a gel when added to water. The gel or whole seeds can be added to smoothies.
