Chia seeds come from the Salvia Hispanica plant, native to southern Mexico and Guatemala but grown here in India too. The seeds may be small but they pack a punch when it comes to nutrition. Whilst Chia is High in Manganese and Phosphorous as well as a source of Copper Truefarm Chia seeds contain all the Essential Amino Acids and are thus a complete protein, so are useful for Vegetarians and Vegans alike, as well as a very good amount of Fiber too, some 37g per 100g.
But it's the beneficial Fat content that's really notable about Chia as they are an especially Rich Source of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), a member of the Omega 3 Essential Fat family, and a vegetarian version of the fats found in oily fish. ALA can help reduce overall cholesterol levels as well as protect them against oxidation.
Truefarm Chia has a milder flavor when mixed with food, and they can be sprinkled on salads, soups, into yogurts and smoothies, or on frozen yogurt. Aside from the nutritional contents, chia adds a satisfying crunch, which is welcome when eating something that might otherwise have little texture.
