Gluten-free flour made from chia seed is the buzz when it comes to baking with wheat free flour alternatives. Our gluten free flour is made from tiny chia seeds which were known as the super food of the ancient Aztec warriors. Chia is the most nutritious grain available today and an excellent product for those who are gluten intolerant or diagnosed with celiac disease.
We are Loaded with Omega-3 and More
Now Nuchia Foods Corporation has made a healthy, great-tasting, , that has the same baking properties of normal flour. By using chia seeds in our blending process, we provide an excellent gluten free source of omega-3, with 12 of the 14 essential minerals needed for a healthy diet making it one of most nutrient dense foods on the planet.
Talk about nutritional value, a two-tablespoon serving of Chia Seed Flour has 530 milligrams (0.53 grams) of omega-3, a full 30% of the recommended daily intake for men and 50% for women. Chia seed flour also has 63 mgs of calcium, 4 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. That means it has more calcium than 2 glasses of milk or 120% of the RDA for children.
Studies show that diets rich in omega-3, fiber, calcium and other nutrients support healthy disease response and may support a healthy heart and help reduce the risk of osteoporosis, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and diabetes.
While the move towards alternative flours is driven by increasing numbers of people with gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease, it also benefits families looking for healthy diets. Health-conscious shoppers have begun to look toward other ancient wheat free grains like amaranth, flax, kamut, millet, quinoa or millet flours. Chia seed flour is like these grains only more nutritious. Also this wheat free flour performs more like an all-purpose wheat flour when used in gluten free baking. It is similar in taste and as easy to use as wheat flour. It is also much easier to use then other ancient gluten free grains.
