So, what is salvia hispanica?

Salvia hispanica, commonly known as chia seeds, are tiny black and white seeds native to Mexico and Guatemala. These seeds are highly nutritious and are considered a superfood due to their high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. They have a mild, nutty flavor and are often used as a topping for yogurt, oatmeal, or salads. Chia seeds can also be mixed with water or milk to create a gel-like substance that can be used as a vegan egg substitute in baking. Their versatility and health benefits make them a popular addition to a healthy and balanced diet.
