So, what is chiansiemen?

Chia seeds, also known as chiansiemen, are tiny, oval-shaped seeds that come from the Salvia hispanica plant, a member of the mint family. Originating from Mexico and Guatemala, these seeds are loaded with nutrients and have been consumed for centuries by the Aztecs and Mayans. Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and various essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. When soaked in liquid, chia seeds expand and develop a gelatinous texture, making them a popular ingredient in vegan desserts and puddings. They also add a nutty flavor and crunch to smoothies, yogurt bowls, and baked goods.
