Recipe
Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars
Category: Desserts
Description: Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food." These tiny seeds contain high concentrations of essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and can easily be incorporated into any diet for an extra boost of nutrition.
Chia typically contains 30-35% oils and is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, with each tablespoon providing approximately 2.5-3 g of Omega 3.
Fiber content of 30-40% per serving, with a high ratio of soluble fiber. This type of fiber allows a slower conversionof carbohydrates to glucose, assisting with those suffering with sugar-related illness.
These essential fatty acids and high amounts of soluble fiber, make Chia very beneficial for cholesterol management and cardiovascular health.
Promotes bowel regularity, while soothing inflammatory bowel issues.
They are classified as a high protein food, offering a complete protein (amino acid) content higher than most other grains.
They contain a high antioxidant content, providing a mix of bioflavonoids and quercentin, with the average ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per tablespoon being 960-1000.
