Omega 3 Chia: Flavor Enhancing, Nutrient Rich, Gluten Free Ingredient

Omega 3 Chia® (Salvia Hispanica L) is a seed from a tropical plant in the mint family.
Chia seeds served as one of the main components of the Aztec diet for over 3500 years.

The addition of 2-3% (of dry net wieght) Omega 3 Chia® allows for a 25% reduction of salt and/
or sugar in pizza dough (or any sauce) without losing any of the flavor profile. Chia’s soluble
fiber gel – formed when in contact with liquid – will actually enhance flavor, and offers a softer
texture; something generally difficult to achieve when baking gluten free.

Add approximately 2-3% chia and add 20% more liquid and now you have a Functional Food.

Omega 3 Chia® is NUTRIENT RICH
Nutrition in 15 grams (1 ½ Tbsp) of Omega 3 Chia® seeds
• 3 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids = to 5 oz. salmon
• Antioxidants = 15 grams of blueberries
• 6.1 grams of dietary fiber= 3 Tbsp. All Bran Buds
• 3.1 grams complete Protein= ¼ cup of kidney beans
• Magnesium = 2 ½ cups of raw spinach
• Iron = 3 cups of raw spinach
• 0 grams sugar
• 0.1 grams carbohydrates
• 107 mg Calcium= 3.1 oz. whole milk
• 0.5 mg Sodium
• No Cholesterol
• Gluten-Free

For example, in a typical 12 inch sub roll, by adding 2 grams of our chia seeds to 72 grams

of dry weight you can achieve an FDA Excellent Source Rating for omega-3 fatty acids, fiber,
protein, calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium.

Omega 3 Chia is the perfect ingredient to use in gluten free cooking as well as in more
traditional pizza recipes because it adds nutrition, lowers salt and sugar, and enhances flavor to
any recipe you use it in.

Omega 3 Chia® is available in whole seed and in cold milled seed flour.
