Chia Seeds Black Organic
Chia Seeds Black Organic
Chia seeds are small and black. If you soak them in water, they become sticky or gel-like. The scientific name of the plant from which organic chia seeds are harvested is Salvia Hispanica. Contrary to what the name suggests, they originate in South America and Mexico (Latin America).
Meanwhile, the plants are cultivated all over the world. Chia seed has been consumed since the 16th century, among other things for energy and stamina. By now it is clear that Chia indeed has high nutritional value.
The use of Chia seeds
Chia seeds are usually brown in colour, but they can also be black and sometimes white. Because they become gel-like when water is added, they can be used in the kitchen as a thickener and emulsifier in place of eggs. You can buy chia seeds in bulk at Vehgro. Chia seeds have a long shelf life and are inexpensive. Chia seeds can be ground or used whole.
A small, refined omega 3 bomb
Chia seed is rich in omega 3. One teaspoon of chia seed is enough to meet the recommended daily dose. The fatty acid, also known as alpha-linolenic acid, is converted by the body into other useful fatty acids. Chia seeds are also rich in calcium and fibre.
Excellent vegan alternative
Vegetarians and especially vegans often struggle to get enough omega 3 in a day. Omega 3 fatty acids are usually of animal origin. Chia is an exception to the rule. Chia seeds are full of omega 3 fatty acids and are also 100% vegetable. Chia seed is easy to use in hot meals, shakes and salads.
Why buy chia seed?
Calcium is often found in dairy products, but chia seed is an exception. If you compare the grams per gram, there is even more calcium in chia seed than in a glass of milk. Calcium is, of course, an important contributor to bone and tooth health, as well as heart health.
Chia seed also contains more magnesium than milk. Magnesium plays a central role in sending signals from the heart to the rest of the body, plus for the muscles. Chia seed can be bought in small quantities or in bulk from wholesaler VehGro.
Where does chia seed come from?
Chia seeds were originally grown in Mexico. Nowadays Chia seeds are grown in different countries: Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina, Guatemala and Australia. Australia was the largest producer of Chia in 2008.
