Chia is very rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. 

Chia seed may be eaten raw as a dietary fibre and omega-3 supplement. Grinding chia produces a meal called pinole, which can be made into porridge or cakes. Chia seeds soaked in water or fruit juice is also often consumed and is known in Mexico as 'chia fresca'. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits. Chia sprouts are used in a similar manner as alfalfa sprouts in salads, sandwiches and other dishes. 

Chia is a plant of the mint family and originated in the central Valley of Mexico.
