Are Chia Seeds Good For You?

Are Chia Seeds Good For You?

Are Chia Seeds Good For You? The Answer is YES!

Chia Seed are a Super Food and Super for You. Chia seed has been around for centuries—in fact; the Aztecs harvested the tiny black seed for years. Chia finally made its way to the American market in the last decade, and has grown in popularity ever since. This tiny tasteless seed has a lot to offer without changing the flavor of your dish.

The chia seed, which appears in white or black, is no larger than a poppy seed, but has a unique property different from Chia seeds are a superfood and provide the great crunch in every jar of Betsy's Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Buttersmost other seeds. When the chia seed comes in contact with water, it swells 12 times its weight by absorbing the liquid. This clear outer coating becomes the soluble fiber, which adds hydration and a sensation of fullness. Known for helping people manage weight, this super food has a lot more to offer than fullness. A serving of 2 tablespoons of chia seeds has the same:

  • Fiber content as five slices of bread
  • Omega-3 content as 3 oz. of salmon
  • Calcium content as one glass of milk

So if chia seeds are so super, why are you not eating them?

Most people don’t know how to incorporate chia seeds into their diet, but they are so small and tasteless that they can really go in just about anything! That is why we decided to use them in all of our Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters. Besides being healthy, they offer an amazing crunch in the raw form, adding that little something special to our nut and seed butters.

You can easily incorporate more chia seeds into your diet; in fact, a couple servings a day might help pave the way to a healthier body. Add a spoonful to your next bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt/  Try a scoop in a soup or smoothie.  Sprinkle some on salads. Add it to a muffin recipe, or add a pinch like parmesan, onto your whole grain spaghetti.

Chia seeds are so easy to add.

The possibilities are endless!
