Organic White Chia Seeds, one of the highest plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, are naturally gluten-free, high in calcium and loaded with fiber. The dense nutritional value of the diminutive seeds has been long known, dating back to Aztec warriors who used the chia seed as part of their diet.
Chia seeds have the unique ability to soak up to 12 times their weight in liquid when submerged, and the seeds become gel-like. The ability to become gelatinous when soaked in liquid aids digestion to slow down absorption of nutrients while also creating new way to create texture in recipes.
