Is it Better To Soak Chia Seeds Before Eating?

You do not need to soak chia seeds before eating them, but soaked and raw chia seeds do have slightly different health benefits.

The biggest difference between soaked and dry is that soaked chia seeds can help to keep you hydrated because they hold up to 12 times their weight in water. This allows for a slow release of hydration and helps to keep you full for longer.

Raw chia seeds have a strong absorbent power and can actually absorb water from your body during the digestion process. If you are wanting to eat raw chia seeds, you should plan to drink extra water. Raw chia seeds have been shown to be helpful for people who have acid reflux to relieve some of the symptoms.
