Chia seeds are edible seeds derived from Salvia hispanica, mainly found in Latin America. They are good sources of fibres, proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium and iron. Chia seeds are gluten-free, therefore they can be ground and added into baking recipes. Chia is grown mainly for its seed, since the seeds yield 25–30% extractable oil, including α-linolenic acid. Chia seeds are small ovals with a diameter of approximately one millimeter. The seeds are hydrophilic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked. While soaking, the seeds develop a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based beverages a distinctive gel texture. Chia seeds play a major role in monitoring blood sugar levels in individuals. When placed in liquid, chia seeds form a gel which helps to slow down release of sugar from starches. Yield of chia seeds depends on mode of cultivation, and growing conditions by region.
