Chia Instant Powder


Scientific name
Salvia Hispanica L.
Description
Water soluble powder made by cold pressing chia seeds and then gently heat extruding the partially defatted cake. Chia instant powder has a better digestibility than chia seeds and chia flour. The controlled heat extrusion process improves digestibility by reducing the anti-nutrients that the chia seed have such as phytate or phytic acid which is an antinutrient that binds to many minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc magnesium and copper which ultimately makes them unavailable for absorption. Also the heat extrusion is a kill step that ensures food safety peace-of-mind.
