Surprisingly, the minute chia seed is among the most potent of all super-foods. "Chia" (Salvia Hispanica) is from the mint family and means "strength" in the ancient Mayan language. Both the Mayans and Aztec civilizations fueled themselves by consuming these unprocessed, whole grain seeds. Per 1 tbsp. serving (12 g) they deliver 2g of protein, 4g fiber and over 2,000mg of Omega 3 Fatty Acid (ALA). Chia seeds require no cooking for consumption and become gelatinous in liquid. They can increase in size up to seven times in water. Truly a dieter's delight in that the addition of chia seeds provides a satiated and full feeling while delivering mineral rich nutrients at the same time.
