The ancient Chia seed is quickly becoming renowned for its numerous healthy benefits that were almost forgotten by modern man. Chia seed was an important staple in Ancient Aztec and Mayan Indian diets. Known as the running food, chia seed was eaten by Aztec warriors and Indian traders during long journeys and was prized for its endurance enhancing properties.
Modern scientists have discovered that tiny chia seeds are nutrient-rich powerhouses packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Chia seeds are gluten-free and easily digested. Amazingly, they can absorb more than 10 times their weight in water, making it helpful in prolonging body hydration. The abundant soluble fiber in the hydrated seeds forms a gel that is thought to create a barrier between carbohydrates and digestive enzymes, slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into simple sugars. Many scientists believe this may help us balance our sugar levels and help boost our endurance at the same time.
Once we had all the facts about chia seed we decided to use it generously in a tortilla that was good for your taste buds too. for fabulous flavor we added real chives and onions directly into the stoned ground white corn masa. The chips are then flash-fried in light tasting expeller pressed high-oleic safflower oil to make a chip that is incredibly delicious as well.
