Disease relevance of CHIA

  • Body weight and feed conversion were significantly lower with the chia diets than with the control, with weight reductions up to 6.2% recorded with the 20% chia diet [1].

High impact information on CHIA

  • Cholesterol content was not significantly different among treatments; however, the 10% chia diet produced a lower fat content in the dark meat than did the control diet [1].
  • Significantly less cholesterol was found in the egg yolks produced by the hens fed the diets with 14, 21, and 28% chia compared with the control, except at Day 90 [2].

Associations of CHIA with chemical compounds

  • Dietary levels of chia: influence on yolk cholesterol, lipid content and fatty acid composition for two strains of hens [2].
