Despite their ancient history as a dietary staple, only recently did chia seeds become recognized as a modern day superfood. In just the past few years, it has exploded in popularity and is now consumed by health-conscious people worldwide.
Thanks to the renewed interest in superfoods over the past few years, U.S. chia consumption outpaces any other western world location. It has also led to the tiny seed once again being cultivated on a large scale. In fact, production has virtually doubled worldwide.
A species of flowering plant in the mint family, chia IS the ultimate superfood. The small ovals seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. They are also a source of the B vitamins thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and folate. Dietary minerals packed into these tiny powerhouses include calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.
Just a few short years ago, products containing chia numbered in the single digits. Today, there are hundreds – and consumers crave even more. Incorporating chia to your formulations is a great way to meet the rising consumer demand for superfoods. Naturally, Scoular makes it easy.
