Raw Chia Seeds are rich in linolenic acid, which is a polyunsaturated fatty acid and a precursor of omega-3. According to research, the unsaturated fatty acids in chia seeds account for 80.5% of the total fat content, and the ratio of n-6/n-3 is reasonable. (The imbalance between n-6 and n-3 PUFA intake in the human diet can lead to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, cancer, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases).
