Chia seeds are one of the most well-known superfoods: they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber (25 grams provide roughly 6.9 grams of fiber), as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, and zinc. They have a mild, nutty flavor, and a pleasing crunch. As is, they can be sprinkled on cereal, yogurt, or salads, or mixed into muffins and other baked goods. When added to liquid and allowed to sit for 30 minutes, chia seeds form a pudding-like gel which can be eaten as a breakfast porridge or mixed into smoothies. Their unique ability to become gelatinous when soaked in liquid aids digestion and slows the absorption of nutrients while also creating new way to create texture in recipes. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
