REDDING, Calif., Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Many have heard of chia seeds, but no other brand delivers high-quality, diverse, and sustainable chia products like Seeds of Wellness. Seeds of Wellness (SOW) is a new line from the largest producer of high-quality chia seeds in the world, Benexia, which harnesses the nutritional properties of chia in its seeds, oils, pastas, alternative milks, and flour. Benexia believes chia can be incorporated into every diet, which is why they are launching this new product lineup through SOW. While there's a general awareness about the benefits of chia, SOW is amplifying the way they're used as the only chia-based brand that covers the alternative milk, pasta and oil categories. These delicious products can be found at healthy markets nationwide such as Sprouts and Albertsons Market.
What are the powerful benefits of Chia Seeds?
Chia is the perfect food. It's an ancient grain, nutrient-dense superfood, rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and good-for-you fats. Chia's superpower is its high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps with gut, immune, heart and brain health. These properties work together to make chia one of the most beneficial nutrition sources to improve your health, fight, and even prevent chronic disease.
"This tiny but mighty seed is packed with healthy fat, fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that impart quite a number of health benefits. And because of its neutral taste, you can add them to almost anything! Just two tablespoons of chia seeds provide 11g of fiber, which is almost a third of what we need in a day," said Leigh-Anne Wooten, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND, LSS BB.
Seeds of Wellness products provide healthy and versatile alternatives to replace wonderful products that can be used day-to-day. SOW products are vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, and sodium-free. SOW's diverse range of chia-based products include:
Chia Beverage (Milk Alternative): SOW created the first non-dairy chia beverage made from the ancient grain, and the only milk alternative that has protein, fiber, and omegas. This new plant-based beverage is smooth, naturally creamy and satisfying. Delicious on its own, tasty poured into cereal, exquisite as a coffee creamer, and useful for adding to recipes as a milk alternative.
Chia Pasta: SOW gluten-free pastas are made from only three ingredients: Chia, corn, and rice flour. Together, they create the delicious consistency of regular pasta (and has a texture that no other pasta alternative has because of the gumminess of chia) with incredible nutrition.
