Re: chia vs. flax

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

The rationale for grinding flax is that the seeds are too small to chew so it will be utilized better if ground first.  This has never actually been proven to be the case.  Since chia seeds are both smaller and harder than flax seeds, it makes no sense to say they don't have to be ground but flax does.
