Essential fatty acids are nutrients that you must consume, since your body does not, and cannot make them on its own.
Omega-3 is one essential fatty acid. Interestingly, only the short chain form of omega3 fatty acid, called ALA (alpha-linolenic fatty acid), not DHA or EPA, is considered essential.
This is because the body can convert ALA into the other two forms of omega-3.
Chia is the highest plant source of omega-3. Being a food derived from plants, all types of consumers (gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, meat lovers, etc.) can safely enjoy chia.
Have you had your chia today?®
