About Chia Seeds Black

Chia seeds are one of the most powerful, functional, and nutritious superfoods in the world. The chia seed is an excellent source of fibre, packed with antioxidants, full of protein, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and the richest known plant source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Chia seeds come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, a member of the mint family that grows in southern Mexico. In pre-Colombian times, chia seeds were a component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and the basic survival ration of Aztec warriors, 2 tablespoons of the seeds could sustain a person for 24 hours. They are neutral in flavour and swell up in water. High in fibre 32g per 100g.

There is very little nutritional difference between black and white Chia seeds; dark Chia has slightly more protein whist the white has marginally more linolenic acid (Omega-3). The main reason for taking black Chia Seed is that it contains more antioxidants that protect the essential fatty acids. Both come from the salvia hispanica plant, the black Chia seeds come from the purple flowering plant when grown, whilst white flowering plants produce the white Chia Seed.

Wholefood Gluten Free Aduki Bean Chocolate Brownies Recipe

Summary: What I love about these brownies is that although they are as rich and dense as the traditional variety, these are chock-full of goodness : the nutrition deprived ingredients in a typical brownie recipe are replaced by highly nutritious whole foods. Protein, Fibre, Folate, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium and Copper - rich Aduki (or Adzuki, or Azuki) beans instead of white floor. Fibre, Vitamin E, Manganese and Copper - rich hazelnuts, instead of extracted vegetable oil or butter. And finally, they are sweetened with whole dates, instead of white sugar or other extracted sweeteners. Grain free, gluten free, can be made vegan ... Yet, as good as chocolate brownies get. But you don't have to take my word for it, try this recipe for yourself !

Leigh Sinclair Chia seeds are supposed to be very, very good for you, so I was chuffed to find out they're really tasty! Great for sprinkling on salad, gives a good texture and crunch to them, I've also used them in dressings because they're quite tiny so you can use them like poppy seeds.
Alice Farmer Chia seeds really are a wonder: they have more Omega-3 than flax seeds!!! They are a life saver for vegans, but for everybody too. I can see how the claim that about 2 tablespoons sustained Aztec warriors for 24 hours is TOTALLY TRUE too. I am no warrior, but I used to be prone to migraines caused by low blood sugar, and a bowl of chia pudding/porridge made from 1 tablespoon chia seeds as a late breakfast DOES sustain me comfortably until dinner. Goodbye migraines. I also love that Real Foods sells them in various sizes, so when you eat a lot of chia seeds like I do, you get a better value by buying the larger packs.
