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. Chia Seeds are ideal for hydration and appetite satiation. Chia Seeds 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, porridges, and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including bread, cakes, and biscuits.
