Nuchia Foods' Gluten-Free Chia Seed Flour Is a Tasty, Low-Fat Alternative Flour
Date:5/20/2009

ORLANDO, Fla., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Chia Seed Flour is the buzz when it comes to gluten-free baking and alternatives to highly processed wheat flour. Chia Seed Flour is made from the tiny chia seeds. The chia seed was the super food of the Aztec warriors. It is the most nutritious grain available today.

Now, thanks to some clever nutritionist and Nuchia Foods Corporation, Chia Seed Flour is once again available for dinner tables everywhere. It is an excellent source of omega-3 and minerals, containing 12 of the 14 essential minerals, 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. Also, it 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.

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 and colon cancer.

While the move towards alternative flours is driven by the ever-increasing number of people with gluten sensitivity, and celiac disease, it is getting help from families looking for healthy diets. Health-conscious shoppers have already begun to look toward other ancient grains like amaranth, flax, kamut, millet, quinoa or millet flours. Like these grains, chia seed flour is an ancient grain, only more nutritious. It also performs more like all-purpose wheat flour, is similar in taste and easier to use than other grains.

The question still remains, how does it taste? At product sampling and taste testing at the Expo West Natural Foods show in Anaheim, California, and The Natural Products Association Expo, (SOHO), Orlando, Florida, the results are in. It tastes great.

It is easy to use replacing wheat flour one for one in most recipes. Because of the high fiber content you will want to add less liquid. Additionally, it usually does not require milk, making it great for lactose-intolerant diets.

Nuchia 100% Chia Seed Flour is low-fat. Compared to Oatmeal, Nuchia 100% Chia Seed Flour is lower in fat, has fewer calories and contains only 35 calories in comparison to Oatmeal's 105 calories. It also has more omega-3, fiber and a higher ORAC value.

Nuchia Foods product is real flour, not just ground up chia seeds. They offer two varieties, their Original Chia Seed Flour and Nuchia 100% Chia Seed Flour.

The Original Chia Seed Flour is an all-purpose alternative flour that includes organic brown rice flour. It is best for baking cookies, pastries and breads. The Nuchia 100% Chia Seed Flour also can be used for baking, but is best as an additive. Both are great as cereals and make a great gluten-free breakfast cereal. Just add warm water or milk, two tablespoons of Chia Flour, some cinnamon, a little salt and sweetener. A great start to a healthy day, with nature's best raw whole food.
