Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia® Seeds also give you tons of energy and are great for weight loss. Because they can absorb over 5 times their weight and size in liquid, Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia® Seeds help you feel fuller longer and are great for preventing dehydration during exercise or exposure to heat.
Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia® Seeds readily dissolve into the water, creating a substance that looks like gelatin. This gel-forming action is due to the soluble fiber in the Chia seed. Researchers believe that this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when Chia seed is consumed, thus creating a physical barrier between carbohydrates and digestive enzymes and slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.
Bulking up a meal with Chia gel helps lessen the amount of food consumed, since Chia gel is primarily made up of water. Chia gel may also be used in place of fats within recipes, even within baked goods. Chia seed has hydrophilic properties, and can absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. (source)
