Chia Seeds are becoming one of the world's leading super foods!
Chia (chee-uh): (Salvia hispanica) a plant of the mint family, native to the southwestern U.S. and Mexico, having mostly basal like, oblong leaves and small blue flowers; the seeds are primarily used as food.
Aztec traders and warriors often subsisted on nothing
more than nutritional chia seeds during their long expeditions. In fact, chia was
so highly valued in the Aztec culture that it was considered a form of currency.
Called the Aztec Seed of Strength - the chia seed was cultivated and eaten by the
ancient Aztecs, Incans, and Mayans and was considered a staple food alongside corn
and beans. “Chia” is the Mayan word for “strength”, and though these cultures may
not have had the medical research to back up their health claims, chia is enjoying
an escalating renaissance by today’s medical community as well as everyday consumers.
Also full of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals (especially calcium and iron),
chia has much in common with flaxseed, with the distinct advantage that its natural
antioxidants make its delicate healthy fats more nutritionally stable.
Chia seeds are an excellent source of dense nutrition with their healthy omega oils, easily digestible protein, and antioxidants. In fact, chia is so high in essential fatty acids that it contains eight times more omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram. Research has indicated that this valuable food is beneficial for many health issues, including diabetes, hypoglycemia, celiac disease, and lowering cholesterol.
Have a Chia snack!
CAOH® 100% organic Absolute Chia™ Seeds have a mild nutty flavor, and develops slightly sweet notes when sprouted. It may be used much like flax seeds in creating a power breakfast: just sprinkle a spoonful into oatmeal, granola, cereal, yogurt and even salads (We Love Them!). It also works very well as a flour substitute and can be used to make hearty breads, crackers, and more. Additionally, chia is considered highly hydrophilic – meaning the seeds have a unique ability to absorb liquid and form a gel. Just soak the chia seeds for about 5 minutes in 3-4 oz of water to produce a nutritious chia gel. This makes chia especially good to use as a thickening agent in recipes like soup, smoothies, or enjoyed as a pudding with a touch of sweetener.
