Do chia seeds have an expiration?

The best by date is generally set at 2 years after processing by most manufacturers, so since chia seeds are good for at least 2-4 years if stored properly, this labeling generally provides for another 2 years after the best by date.

Thereof, do chia seeds in water go bad?

Usually you won't be able to tell any change in taste, until you soak the seeds and eat them. Chia seeds have no taste at all when soaked in water. But if you taste anything rancid, stale or off putting in any way, it might mean your chia seeds have gone bad. In this case you should throw it out.

How much chia seeds should you eat in a day?

They do also seem to be well tolerated but if you're not used to eating a lot of fiber, then there is a possibility of digestive side effects if you eat too much at a time. A common dosage recommendation is 20 grams (about 1.5 tablespoons) of chia seeds, twice per day.
