Raw food quality black Chia seeds, oleaginous with a neutral taste and rich in healthy elements.
Chia seeds are rich in mucilages, as psyllium and linseeds, and are an excellent source of soluble and insoluble dietary fibres, beneficial for the digestive system and intestinal transit. As sesame seeds (but unlike linseeds) they may be eaten whole to enjoy all their nutrients and they are quite resistant to preservation thanks to their richness in antioxidants.
Chia seeds have a neutral taste and are very popular in the United States where they are there consumed in muesli, spreads, yoghurt with fresh fruit... They are particularly in vogue among sportsmen and active and performant people.
Chia seeds contain neither cholesterol nor gluten and have a particularly high level of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids with an excellent ratio of 3 to 1. They contain a lot of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is a plant species belonging to the Lamiaceae family, grown originally by the Aztecs in Central America. At the time, the Aztecs already knew its properties and used its seeds daily as a food of great value, suitable for many preparations.
Originally chia seeds were used raw or heated in Mexican cooking, e.g. for salad sauces as grains or chia gel (1 volume of chia seeds swelled (anv thereby several times mixed ) in 7 volumes of water / juice), or in bread: by incorporating 5% of chia seeds in bread dough gives a bread with delicious crispy texture and remaining longer fresh. A traditional drink, the pinole, prepared as the gel with fruit or vegetables juice and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, served as healthy energy snack with particularly positive effect on digestion and metabolism.

Recommendations for use
Chia seeds mixed with water give after a few moments a pectic gel composed of mucilaginous substances that have a beneficial effect on the digestive system. The ability of chia seeds to retain water (they bind about 10 times their weight in water) rapidly improves the quality and consistency of stools in cases of digestive disorders and they also form a sort of slime on the wall of the intestine which prevents pathogenic bacteria to cause too much damage there and promotes the recovery of the intestinal mucosa in case of intestinal infections.
