Chia is a Mayan word for strength. While tiny in size, Chia Seeds are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, antioxidants, and dietary fiber. They are also ideal for hydration and appetite satiation.
They can be eaten raw, soaked in juice, sprinkled on a salad, or added to baked goods. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridge, and puddings.
Ground chia seeds are also used in baked goods, including bread, cakes, and biscuits. They can also be used in yogurt and oatmeal, or in smoothies. They can also be added to muffins and cakes as an egg replacement.
