Ground chia seeds
 
Hello. I bought some chia seeds. I want to grind them up first prior to consumption. It's a bit of a hassle to have to do this everyday so I think I will grind up quite a bit and then store it in the fridge. Question: how long do ground chia seeds last before oxidizing? I am not worried about them going rancid because I know they keep for quite long in the fridge. My question specifically pertains to oxidation and potential loss of nutrients.

Thanks.

Why do you need to grind them up? We use them straight. They're already pretty small.

There isn't any particular reason. It's just a preference, I guess. I know they break up quite easily in water. For some reason I just like them ground up.

I keep a small jar of them ground up in my spice drawer, to thicken things, like mustard, and similar things, that have vinegar separate from them. I have never had any of them go bad. As for other uses, I just use it whole, and let it gel in things I add them to.
