Chia seeds vs. Flax seeds
Both chia seeds and flax seeds top the list of superfoods. They are
both easy to add to your salads or smoothies for a nutritional punch.
But is one better than the other?
|Chia Seeds/2 Tbsp||Flax Seeds/2 Tbsp|
|Omega 3 (EFA)||5,000mg||2,700mg|
|Taste||Faintly nutty/earthy||Whole grain/nutty|
|Storage||Keep for 2 years||Spoils Quickly|
|Versatility||Don’t need to grind||Must grind|
|GLuten||Gluten free||Gluten free|
Depending on what source you check out, either could win out. If you
had to choose based on the above comparison, it looks like chia seeds
win out, but not by a landslide. Use both. Each have their own
nutritional benefits and are an easy addition to your healthy diet where
variety is key
