Feature Summary

With today's hectic lifestyles and high demands, eating nutrition-rich, natural whole foods can be a challenge. Naturally delicious and nutritious chia seeds supply whole food nutrition to anyone's diet. Chia is known as a super food and is one of nature's most perfect food. Chia seeds contain highly concentrated amounts of essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, a vegetarian source of protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Chia seeds supply all of the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities for growth, and for building and maintaining skin, muscles, brain, and hair. Protein is also needed to make enzymes, hormones and antibodies.

Chia seeds are high in fibre, containing 40% or more dietary fibre. Just 2 tablespoons of ChiaFactors provides approximately 10 g of fibre, equivalent to 40% of the minimum amount recognized for good health. A diet rich in fibre will help to curb your appetite, balance blood glucose levels, prevent constipation, improve gastrointestinal health, and reduces the risk of coronary heart disease.

Ingredients

Organic chia seeds (Salvia hispanica).
Chia seeds are manufactured and packaged under GMP standards. Non-GMO, like all other chia seeds in Canada.
** The oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) test has become one of the standard methods to measure antioxidant properties in foods. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the concentration of antioxidants.

 

Dosage

1 tablespoon (11.5g) daily. Add ChiaFactors to your favourite food or beverage. ChiaFactors can be eaten straight out of the container or added to hot and cold cereals, yogurt, fruit, salad, soups, sauces, smoothies or green drinks. Add ChiaFactors to your favourite recipes such as pancakes, breads, cookies, or muffins, to improve taste and nutrition.
 
You can make your own version of the popular Mexican "chia fresca" by stirring 2 teaspoons of ChiaFactors into a glass of water or juice. Lime or lemon juice, or sweetener, may be added to taste. Chia fresca is said to aid digestion. Chia gel can be made by mixing one part chia seeds with nine parts water. The resulting gel can be mixed with cereals, salad dressings, peanut butter and virtually any food to increase its nutritive value.

 

Safety

No adverse reactions to chia seeds have been reported, even at levels greatly exceeding the recommended daily intake. Chia seeds are a gluten-free and organic vegan whole food. Whole chia seeds are highly stable and have a long shelf life due to their high antioxidant content. Chia seeds are also highly digestible; because their shells are easily broken down, even when swallowed whole, grinding is not required.
