Mucilage is a thick gooey substance produced by many plants and microorganisms. Blue Marble developed a novel and efficient way to extract the mucilage from chia seeds. This product can be used as a natural texturizer and bulking agent in food and has the potential to replace ingredients like eggs during the cooking process. The process developed for chia mucilage recovery is organic compliant and produces other material streams, including but not limited to the extraction of high omega 3 chia oils and recovered fiber and protein from the chia seeds.
