Can chia seeds, if consumed the wrong way, potentially kill you? Apparently this superfood can cause a dangerous esophageal obstruction making it impossible to breath.
Why do they present this danger? Dry chia seeds can absorb up to 27 times their weight in water. They can expand mid-swallow and lodge themselves in the esophagus. If the seeds do cause an esophageal obstruction they can be very difficult to remove because of their gel-like consistency. While it's a risk for everyone, it presents a particular problem for people with a history of dysphagia or swallowing problems.
To avoid this issue, mix chia seeds with liquids like milk, yogurt, or water to allow them to expand before eating them.
Please be aware of these dangers but The Doctors still love chia seeds, which are rich in fiber and healthy fats that can keep you feeling full. Also one tablespoon of chia seeds will give you almost 20% of your daily fiber intake.
