Edgewood Florida now Home of “The Super Grain”
– Nuchia Foods Corporation, opened its National Offices in Edgewood, Florida. Edgewood is a small family oriented city just south of downtown Orlando. Edgewood was chosen because of its closeness to downtown Orlando and the Orlando International Airport (OIA).
Nuchia Foods Corporation, Inc. is a food packaging company. The company will package and market Nuchia Brand Chia Seed “The Super Grain” from its Edgewood offices.
Chia Seed, is like Flax Seed only better. Studies over the last 10 years are proving that Chia Seed is the healthiest of all food grains, “The Super Grain.”
Of greatest importance is the fact that Chia Seed naturally contain more Omega-3 fatty acids than any other natural source and it is Gluten free.
Chia Seed contains 62% Omega-3 fatty acid per 100 grams; this is the highest percentage of Omega-3 of any commercially available source. Compare to Flax 54.6%, Hemp 19.9% and Evening Primrose 0.4%.
Extensive research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent certain chronic diseases such as heart disease and arthritis. Chia, salvia hispanica L, contains the highest source of Omega-3 fatty acids of any known food grain
. Omega-3 fatty acids
have been found to have a positive effect on diabetes, blood cholesterol level, high blood pressure, weight control, osteoporoses, depression, breast, colon and prostate cancer.
Additionally Chia is Superior in protein quality to wheat, corn, rice, oats, barley, amaranth, flax and soy. Chia also offers a disease-fighting arsenal of antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.
While the Nuchia Brand Chia Seed is a relative new arrival to the nutritional foods market, the demand for Chia Seed is expected to grow and we will be there.” This growth will be fueled by increased interest from large food makers, greater availability of wholesale Chia Seeds as well as the public interest in better health.
