      Claudia, I think I know what you’re getting at, and the answer is yes; chia seeds don’t need to be ground like flaxseeds in order to reap the benefits. Though using them ground is perfectly OK, too. Just make sure to use them with plenty of liquid!

    you can also soak chia seeds in a small amount of water and they will create a gel that mixes easier!
