CHIA ? Another super food?

Let’s look straight into the nutritional values

A 1 ounce (28 grams, about 2 tablespoons) serving of chia seeds contains:

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
  • They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.

That really is quiet impressive for a little amount of this mini black seed.

Chia seeds are full of fibre, and Fibre is associated with reducing inflammation, lowering cholesterol and regulating bowel function. Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals, aging and cancer. The high antioxidant profile also helps them have a long shelf life. Two tablespoons of those black little seeds contain 18 percent of the DRI for calcium, 35 percent for phosphorus, 24 percent for magnesium and about 50 percent for manganese.

And on the top of it, they are gluten free and low calorie.

So where this magic balls are coming from?

Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the plant Salvia Hispanica, which is related to the mint.

This plant grows natively in South America and was an important food for the Aztecs and Mayans back in the day.

There are two variaties of those seeds in the shops. Black (the most popular one) and white/grey. Is there a difference?

Longtime chia seed researcher and University of Arizona Professor Emeritus Wayne Coates says there is "no major difference" nutritionally between different colors of chia seeds. He adds that any minor differences in food value from one batch of seed to another would depend on where the plants were grown. Coates notes that mature chia seeds are black, white, cream or gray. So simply get the once that are cheaper, but look always for the Organic option.

We believe that Chia deserves to be on the SUPER FOOD list. Just follow the basics rules.

Do not over boil them.  They need just few minutes in hot or over an hour in cool liquids. More natural you leave them, more nutrition will be untouched.


But what we can do with Chia on the daily bases to really make an impact on our bodies?

They are endless options how to prepare and what to combine it in your everyday meals. The great think is that Chia has very mild and neutral flavour. It can be used in salty and sweet dishes. You can simply add it to your rice, soup, sauce at the end of cooking or let it rest for few minutes in the salad dressing, before you pour it on the leaves before serving.

We created Chia and freeze dried raspberry shots. By adding freeze dried raspberries to the mild and delicate flavour of our Chia seeds soaked in coconut milk, it works perfectly. And the only sweetenes comes from a touch of maple or agave syrup and freeze dried raspberries.

Have it instead of a dessert or as a fast breakfast substitute. And make it delicious, so you are looking forward to eating it.
