Chia seeds are the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the mint family (Lamiaceae) native to central and southern Mexico, or Salvia columbariae, a closely related Salvia species native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. Chia seeds are oval, grey, and have black and white markings on them. When soaked, the seeds absorb up to 12 times their weight in liquid and develop a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based meals and beverages a characteristic gel texture. Chia seeds are very beneficial for the human body. Chia seeds are a convenient way to boost your intake of essential nutrients. To keep the seeds fresh, store them in a plastic or glass container with a tight lid in a cool, dry area like your pantry or fridge. Then, from salads to smoothies, keep them on hand to add to your favourite drinks and cuisines.
