CHIA BIO

DESCRIPTION

Chia (Salvia hispanica L.) is a plant native to southern Mexico and northern Guatemala that was used in ancient times because of its exceptional nutritional properties.

Chia seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, primarily linolenic acid (omega 3), proteins and fibres. They also contain antioxidant compounds that add to the beneficial properties of these seeds.

Considered a superfood, chia seeds not only have high nutritional value, but also anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering properties. Thanks to their fibre content they also offer digestive and satiating properties.

Our chia seeds (Salvia hispanica L.) are a natural source of vegetable omega-3, minerals and fibre. Include this superfood in your daily diet!

ORIGIN

Chia (Salvia hispanica L.) belongs to the Lamiaceae family (of which mint and thyme are also members) and is native to southern Mexico and northern Guatemala (1). It is an annual herbaceous plant that can grow to one metre tall, its leaves are wide and their flowers can be purple, blue or white.

Chia seeds are oval, dark grey with small black lines and are approximately 2 mm long and 1 mm wide (2).

Salvia hispanica - CHIA - CHIA BIO POWDER

HISTORY

The word "chia" is a word from the Nahuatl language that refers to several botanical species of different genuses, including the Salvia genus. Chia was, during pre-Columbian times, a very important plant, and its seeds, oil and flour were highly valued due to their food, artistic and religious uses (3). It was also one of the main crops grown in Central America at that time, only surpassed in importance by maize and bean cultivation. Of great value to the Mayan and Aztec civilisations (1), when the Spanish arrived, consumption declined dramatically (4). Currently, cultivation of Salvia hispanica has spread to South America, mainly for its oilseeds (1).

COMPOSITION

Lipids make up 25-40% of the composition of chia seeds, of which 60% is alpha-linolenic acid (omega 3) and 20% linoleic acid (omega 6). They also contain proteins (15-25%), carbohydrates, fibre, minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper) and vitamins (1, 5). Chia seeds are also a powerful source of antioxidant molecules such as polyphenols, myricetin, quercetin, kaempferol, caffeic and chlorogenic acids (1).

  • OUR PRODUCT
  • Product Name: Chia from organic farming
  • Scientific name: Salvia hispanica L.
  • Part used: Seeds

BENEFITS

Chia seeds have anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive and lipid-lowering properties (help to lower blood lipids and improve lipid profile) (1, 5).

USAGE, DOSAGE

Chia seeds are an excellent alternative for gluten-free recipes: they can be used as a gelling agent and for making pastries. The quantity of wheat-based flour is replaced by a mixture of 50% ground chia seeds and brown rice flour (6). They can also be eaten raw with yoghurt, soft cheese or in smoothies.

We recommend grinding the seeds before eating them to maximise their nutrients or, if it is the mucilage (soluble fibre) that you want to consume, we recommend leaving them to soak for 30 minutes.

Daily intake of chia seeds should not exceed 15 g.

STUDIES

Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica L.) have numerous benefits, mainly related to their fibre and omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid) content. The presence of this essential fatty acid has been linked to a decrease in inflammatory response (7) and of visceral fat, which helps to protect the liver and heart (8). An improvement in dyslipidemia (abnormal lipid levels) has also been observed, together with insulin resistance and a decrease in systolic blood pressure due to consumption of chia seeds (9-10).

Finally, chia seeds have digestive and satiating properties. Mucilages are soluble fibres that, when ingested together with liquids, form a viscous gel in the digestive system that slows down the absorption of nutrients and delays gastric emptying, creating a feeling of fullness (11).
