Chia seeds

Chia seeds are one of Nature's perfect foods, containing essential fatty acids (an excellent vegetarian source of omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid), protein, soluble fiber, protective antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and more. The Raw Chia Seeds are grown sustainably in southern Mexico.

Chia Seeds contain oil amounts varying between 32-39%, with the oil offering the highest known natural percentage of alpha-linolenic fatty acid (60-63%). Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid acting in the human body as a substratum for the transformation into EPA and DHA through the action of desaturation and elongation enzymes. The seeds also contain some omega-6 essential fatty acids and exhibit a favorable omega-3 to omega-6 ratio of 3:1. Modern diets contain too few omega-3 fatty acids. The seeds possess 19-23% protein and the amino acids of chia protein have no limiting factors in the adult diet (i.e., they are a complete protein source providing all of the essential amino acids in an appropriate balance).


Chia Seeds are also a good source of B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, boron, and copper. They also have demonstrated strong antioxidant activity. The most important antioxidants they provide are chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, and flavanol glycosides. Because oxidation is significantly delayed, chia offers great potential within the food industry when compared to other alpha-linolenic acid sources, such as flax seeds, which exhibit rapid decomposition due to a lack of antioxidants.

Mechanism of Action:

The human body easily digests chia seeds. The seed’s outer layer is rich in mucilloid soluble fiber (chia possesses 5% soluble fiber) and absorbs up to twelve (or more) times its weight in water. When mixed with water or stomach juices, the seeds form a gel that creates a physical barrier between the carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down. The carbohydrates thereby are digested and converted into glucose (blood sugar) at a slow, uniform rate. There is no insulin surge or spike needed to lower the blood sugar level. The water-retaining capacity of the gel also maintains bodily hydration (i.e., helping level out water intake) and electrolyte balance.

Zoya.BG Recipe

Chia Seed Milk


4 Tbsp Chia seeds
2 Tbsp raw walnuts
2 Tbsp raw sesame tahini
2 Tbsp raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
5 c water

In a jar or glass, soak seeds and walnuts overnight in 3 cups water. Pour into blender, add 1 cup water and blend at medium speed. With blender running add tahini, honey and vanilla and then 1 more cup water. Blend only until smooth. Store in glass jar or covered pitcher in fridge.
Chia milk is rich in EFAs and protein. Because of the soaking it's also particularly rich in enzymes. Because of chia seeds' antioxidants, it will keep well in your fridge for about 1 week. Use it as a substitute for other forms of milk.
