2. Dietary Fiber in Chia vs. Flax
However, the tables suddenly turn when it comes to fiber. If you’re reaching for chia seeds, research from the USDA’s National Nutritional Database says you can expect a stellar 20-percent of your daily recommended allowance (RDA) in one serving.
Flax still provides the fibrous goods, at only 15% of your RDA. Chia also provides double the calcium—11% of your recommended daily dose (compared to just 5% in flax).
