DID YOU KNOW? Chia seeds are high in several nutrients that are important for bone health, including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and protein.

One ounce (28 grams) of chia seeds contains 18% of the RDI for calcium. Gram for gram, this is higher than most dairy products, making chia seeds a good source of calcium for people who don’t eat dairy.

However, it’s important to know that chia seeds also contain phytic acid, which reduces calcium absorption to some extent.

“What is phytic acid?” – you might be wondering. According to Stephan Guyenet:

“Phytic acid is a small molecule found in seeds like grains, beans, and nuts that binds (chelates) certain essential minerals—particularly calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc—and reduces their absorption from food. What this means is that the nutritional value of these foods isn’t as high as you might expect if you looked them up in a nutritional database. Many traditionally-living cultures with grain-heavy diets used techniques such as soaking, grinding, and fermentation that reduce phytic acid levels and increase mineral availability.” (Learn more about phytic acid here).

Now get those chia seeds soaking so you can try this delicious autumn-inspired chia seed pudding.
