I purchased Chia seeds for the health benefits, but wasn't able to tolerate the super thick snot like way they gel up. Gagging at the thought of it as I type. They gel up in anything that contains liquid or moisture. The gel that forms is so much thicker than flax seeds. Also the chia seeds are tinier than a pin head, so I'm not sure you would be able to strain the seeds out. The longer they sit in a liquid substance the thicker they get. They are kind of expensive too.
