Sprouted Chia Powder (Raw, Organic) 8 oz
Sprouted and low temperature dried chia seeds, powdered.
A new way to reap the benefits of chia, in a sprouted powder form. Chia seeds are a greatsource of omega 3 fatty acids as well as protein, calcium, magnesium, fiber and packed withantioxidants. The germination process before low temperature grinding the chia seeds intoa powder enhances the nutrient content and enzyme content making it more bioavailablefor the body, and maximizing assimilation and digestion. Try some in a smoothie, as anaddition to a salad or as an ingredient in your raw cracker recipe or gluten free bread.
Seeds and grains contain “anti-nutrients” such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. Theseinhibitors can prevent the formation of enzymes in our digestive tract and interfere with thebody’s ability to digest them effectively. The germination process reduces the level of phyticacid and allows for better mineral absorption in our body. Germination can also reducethe level of lectins in seeds, grains and legumes, while naturally increasing antioxidants.Germination has a significantly positive effect on enzyme activity, increasing it as muchas 800%. The increased soluble to insoluble fibre ratio that occurs during the germinationprocess results in enhanced nutrient absorption. Sprouted flaxseed and sprouted chiaseed can provide the necessary cofactors in a bioavailable format that the body requiresto convert Omega 3 fatty acids to EPA and DHA. When flaxseed is germinated, the level ofligans is increased, making sprouted flax powder one of the highest plant source of lignansand also the most bioavailable.
