About chia seeds:
Chia seeds are tiny black seeds, smaller than millet and typically contain 20% protein, 34% oil, 25% dietary fiber, and significant levels of antioxidants. The oil from chia seeds contains a very high concentration of omega-3 fatty acid - about 64%. When soaked in water, they release a gel that is highly nutritious. They do not need to be ground (or even chewed) in order for the omega-3's to be utilized by the body.
