Learn about Chia Seeds

When you think of 'chia seeds' you may just think of the fun, fuzzy chia pet pottery animal. However, Chia is so much more than that! With 'food grade' seeds, you can eat them. But why would anyone want to? That's what this hub is all about!

First, the chia seed has no flavor of its own. This means that it's not going to interfere with the taste of foods you add it to. Infact...its gelling property will help it take on and distribute (never dilute or cover-up!) the taste of other foods. You can really make chia taste like whatever you already like to eat...with the bonus of, sometimes chia will make the food taste *even better*!

This is amazing by itself, but chia is about more than just flavor.
It's about your health. These tiny seeds truly are a super food. Forgotten for centuries it's time for these seeds to return to the spotlight. With the wide range of health problems in today's world, chia arrives just in time. You can use this hub to learn (and see!) how many different ways chia seeds can help you.

Worried about diverticulitus?
Chia has loads of both types of fiber (soluble & insoluble) to help you prevent this painful problem. Their gelling action keeps the intestine hydrated for health, too.
Want to cut the fat?
When you use chia gel, you can replace half the butter in your baked recipes, and lose none of the taste! You can also substitute chia gel as a calorie-replacement technique.
Need more Omega-3 Oil but don't want the fish?
With over-fishing of the seas, mercury levels in deep-sea fish, and people who don't want salmon every other day...it's no wonder that people can't find the right way to get healthy omega 3 oil in their diet. With chia on the menu, you won't need to worry because these seeds have more omega-3 than salmon!
Want more protein in your diet, but you're a vegetarian?
Chia has you covered here too. With 0 animal ingredients, 0 pesticides and 0 additives, chia has complete protein. (23%, by weight) This is the SAME protein found in animal products...but it's from a plant!
Worried about your picky eater kids not getting enough nutrition?
Chia has more calcium by weight than milk, more magnesium than broccolli, and even the important trace-mineral boron. Since you can mix the seeds into anything your kids already like, there won't be any problems at the dinner table.

There are even more ways that chia can benefit everyone who eats it.

Thank you, I had already researched Chia Seeds. But I had no idea that they made a gel like that and help keep you full that way. It is also awesome that you can replace half the butter in a recipe! I bought some today, I am excited to start eating them.
