Chia seeds on average contain 6% water, 42% carbohydrates, 16% protein, and 31% fat. They are mottle-colored with brown, gray, black, and white. The seeds are hydrophilic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked; they develop a mucilaginous coating that gives chia-based creams and beverages a distinctive gel texture.
