Chia seeds have been a staple food of the Native American people for centuries. Chia seed is a complete source of dietary protein, providing all the essential amino acids and is extremely rich in Omega 3 fatty acids.
Chia seeds typically contain 20% protein, 34% oil, and 25% dietary
fiber. Chia seeds contain no gluten and only trace levels of sodium. There
are no known toxic components of chia seed. Chia Seeds are superior in protein
quality over wheat, corn, rice, oats, barley, amaranth and soy. Chia seeds
also offer a disease-fighting arsenal of antioxidants, including chlorogenic
acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.
Ground chia seeds can be used in baked goods. The fastest and easiest way to take chia seed is to add one tablespoon chia seed into an eight-ounce glass of water or juice, stir to break up any lumps, let sit about five minutes, stir again, and then drink. You can also use chia seed to make a gel, which can be added to milkshakes, spreads, smoothies, hot or cold cereals, yogurts, etc.
