Why should I eat Salba Smart Organic Raw Whole Chia Seeds?

Salba Smart Organic Raw Whole Chia Seeds is a nutritional powerhouse, loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Richer in protein and Omega-3s than Chia, and higher in fiber than flaxseed, Salba is a functional food that can be enjoyed daily to help manage blood sugar levels, to help reduce the risks of diseases such as heart disease, and to help reduce appetite and increase satiety. Gram for gram, a 12g serving of Salba provides:

  • 8x more Omega-3's than salmon
  • 25% more dietary fiber than flax
  • 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli
  • 7x more antioxidants than oranges
  • 6x more calcium than milk
  • 3x more iron than spinach
  • 3x more fiber than oats

How do I use Salba?

Use Salba much like flax. Salba is a taste-neutral, functional ingredient that can be incorporated into any recipe or meal. Unlike other whole grains, Salba does not need to be ground before use. Salba grain is frequently added to cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, soups, sandwiches, salads, smoothies and baked goods. It can also be found in everyday foods such as salsa, pretzels, baked potato crisps, tortillas, tortilla chips, baby foods, and baked goods.

How is Salba different from Chia?

  • Salba and Chia are from the same species - Salvia hispanica L. - but while Salba is composed of two distinct registered varieties (Sahi Alba 911 & 912), Chia is made up of many different and unregistered wild strains of the species, the nutritional consistency of which can vary greatly. It's a little like comparing a bottle of Cabernet from a single grape variety to table wine made from a number of different grapes: both are 'red wine', but the quality and profile of each is quite different.
  • Salba is grown only under strictly controlled conditions in Peru. Due to the resulting nutritional consistency, Salba is the only variety of Salvia hispanica L. that has undergone intensive peer reviewed clinical research with proven beneficial results1. Chia research has confirmed that it can not claim the same clinically proven health benefits2.
  • Salba is white and blends easily into almost any food. Chia seeds are mostly black.
  • Salba has more Omega 3's, protein, potassium, calcium and iron than Chia.

The following are some easy ways to incorporate Salba into your daily diet:

Sprinkling (whole or ground):
  • Cereal - sprinkle over the top after adding milk
  • Sandwiches - sprinkle grain onto spread (so it doesn't fall off)
  • Salads - sprinkling Salba over the top of your salad dressing adds a nice crunch
  • Eggs - sprinkle over the top of eggs prepared your favorite way
  • Mixing (whole or ground):
  • Cereal - mixed in hot cereal before or after cooking
  • Sandwiches - mixed in your favorite sandwich spread
  • Salads - mixed in your favorite salad dressing
  • Smoothies - mix into your favorite smoothie
  • Eggs - mix in your omelets or scrambles before cooking

  • Sauces - mix in any sauce to thicken
  • Baking (whole or ground):Replace the 1/6 flour in any recipe with ground Salba
  • Add whole grain to any recipe
  • 1T Whole grain Salba + 1/4 cup of water = 1 egg (stir Salba to prevent clumping, blend gel for best results)
  • Enhance your muffins, breads, cookies, meatloaf, pie crusts, etc. with Salba!

Salba - A Labor of Love
For the past 15 years, the visionaries behind Salba have been perfecting the balance of science and agriculture necessary to produce Nature's Healthiest Whole Food. We are passionate about providing only the highest quality product to our customers. Here are just a few of the things that make Salba special:
  • Salba is farmed in the planet's most optimal climate for the crop: the fertile soils of Central and South America.
  • Salba is cultivated using drip-irrigation, ensuring an even dispersal of water over the entirety of the crop, just as the ancients did.
  • Salba is an heirloom crop, which means that only the most nutrient dense seeds are harvested and re-planted to continually yield the most nutrient dense whole food on the planet. Soil is rigorously tested to find the most ideal locations for the next planting.
  • Salba is harvested at full maturity, guaranteeing the seeds contain the highest density of nutrients. Other purveyors of similar grains or seeds will often harvest early to produce more crops and turn greater revenue. That's not our style.
  • Salba (salvia Hispanica L) is the subject of numerous clinical studies that support its efficacy.
  • Salba is the subject of numerous clinical studies that guarantee its efficacy.

Just keep coming back for more and more Salba seeds...I like that it's not sold loose in bins like is often found in health food stores...and the fact that it's organic. I feel I can trust this brand for safety. Never contains any foreign particles as I've found in other chia seeds...and works really when when making chia seed pudding. (which is merely 1/2 cup of Salba seeds, 2 cups of some kind of milk -- soy, rice, almond) and a few tsp of any sweetener (I use 4 soaked Medjool dates). I put all into food processor and when it starts to thicken after about a minute, I pour into a covered container and refrigerate. Instant energy breakfast topped with some fruit or a great pick me up snack.
