NOW Sprouted Milled Chia
While most of us know Chia from the popular and peculiar Chia Pets, Chia is far more than a humourous ornamental plant. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is one of the best-known plant sources of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. Chia Seeds are also an excellent source of fibre and a good source of calcium. Sprouting, also known as germination helps concentrate nutrient levels, break down hard-to-digest food components to aid digestibility, and increases probiotics and antioxidant levels in seedlings. Sprouting turns some super foods into LIVE SUPER foods, where vitamin and mineral levels can increase up to 30 times. Increases in beneficial fibre and protein content are also seen, while both are converted into easier-to-digest forms. The proliferation of antioxidants and probiotics help protect the germinating seed, and provide wonderful nutritional benefits for humans. Our sprouted and cold-milled chia seeds retain their nutritional value longer as the occurrence of rancidity is reduced.
