Chia is one of the "new" generation of super-plant proteins.
However, chia has actually been around for much longer.
One of the original superfoods of the Americas and a highly prized staple of the Aztec diet, chia was valued for the energy, vigor and staying power it offered this ancient civilization’s warriors.
A very early form of fast food, Native American Indians packed the seeds for long trips, adding water to them at mealtime. The seeds would expand from the liquid, providing not only energy for their travels, also a feeling of fullness, too.
Chia seeds contain 18 amino acids, including all the essential amino acids.
When chia seeds are milled, they remain gluten-free and take on a delightfully nutty taste. And they contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid.
Researchers believe that natural food sources of ALA may offer greater support to heart health, and help counteract less-than-desirable effects of excess linoleic acid (LA) from processed fast foods.

The protein derived from
potatoes is equal to eggs
in biological value.
Potato protein is surprisingly valuable:
- Contains between 90 and 95% amino acids
- Is highly bio-available
- Highly digestible and fast absorbing
- Contains more BCAAs than whey protein
- Has a higher biological value than casein and is equal to eggs
- Low allergenic potential
- Its nitrogen content is remarkably close to animal protein
- Contains more essential amino acids than any other protein powder!
