Nutritional benefits of Chia:

1.      Omega-3

Essential fatty acids unable to be produced in the body

Recommended daily intake Omega 6: Omega 3 is 5:1

Fundamental part of cell functioning and immune protection

Large concentration of alpha-linolenic fatty acid known to date:  63.2%. 

 

2.      Protein

Chia is a protein source of high-biological value, providing all essential amino acids: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine

Proteins are a part of our bodily structure and provide the necessary material for growth and repair of human tissues and organs; for example, keratin is present in the skin, nails and hair; collagen is present in bones, tendons and cartilages, and elastin is mostly found in ligaments

 3.      Fibre

Fibre is structural part which can’t be broken or digested in the digestive system

Fibre can be soluble (found in oatmeal, nuts and fruit) and insoluble fibre (wheat bran, vegetables and wholegrain)

Chia seeds have total 40% of both fibre sources

4.      Anti-oxidants

Other chemical elements involved is group of “natural anti oxidants such as phenolic glycoside-Q and K, cholorgenic acid, caffeic acid, quercetin and kaempferol” (Reyes-Caudillo et al., 2007).

5.      Vitamins and Minerals

Rich in Vitamin B nutrition

High source of calcium and phosphorus

Energy packed than cereals

Characteristics:

Light nutty taste, odourless, easy to add to your recipes without altering its taste

 

Benefits of Chia:

HEALTHY HEART

The Omega 3 ALA found in Chia is especially important for a healthy heart and research has shown it can be beneficial for lowering cholesterol, maintaining artery function and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. The heart foundation recommends a daily intake of 2g of Omega 3 ALA as opposed to Omega 3 DHA (found in fish oil) which should be consumed twice a week.

ENERGY LEVELS

Chia provides a sustained release of energy into the body. Many of our consumers are athletes who eat Chia to improve endurance and aid joint mobility and muscle repair.

FIBRE DIET

Consuming fibre helps to lower cholesterol in the body, aids intestinal health and can reduce the risk and occurrence of colon cancer. A high fibre diet has shown to improve blood sugar control and may help to assist some people with their diabetes management.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Chia Seed has the effect of thickening or bulking up food and therefore can give you a full sensation when you add it to food. This can result in you taking in fewer calories over the day and assist with weight loss. Chia also provides a slow release of energy which can sustain you for longer.

HEALTHY SKIN, HAIR and NAILS

Chia contains a high source of Omega 6 LA, antioxidants and protein which are all important for healthy skin. Studies have shown a diet containing antioxidants can slow the process of aging in the body. Hair and nails are also mostly made of protein. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissues and needs relatively large amounts of protein and must draw on it from the diet as protein isn't stored in the body. Chia is a great natural source of protein since it contains 20% protein in each serve.

Chemical background

Chia seeds consist of 64% of naturally derived ome essential fatty acids, a component which can’t be produced or synthesised in humans, fibre made up of large polysaccharide that retains water forming a gel like substance. Other chemical elements involved is group of “natural anti oxidants such as phenolic glycoside-Q and K, cholorgenic acid, caffeic acid, quercetin and kaempferol” (Reyes-Caudillo et al., 2007).

  

Physical background

The chia seeds display a unique appearance available in both black and white colours absorbing a huge quantity of water in short period of time. The shape of the chia seeds are constant but surrounded in globule of water, displaying the mechanical strength of individual seeds. Resistant to heat, light as well as temperature cycles. Storing the chia seeds is unaffected regardless where the material is kept in any type of conditions therefore no requirments or storage conditions is needed being environmentally friendly and manufactuirng costs low
