The tiny chia seed has a history and tradition of more than 3,500 years in the Aztec and Mayans civilizations, thanks to its natural, quality nutrients. Chia oil is the richest source of omega-3 found in nature, with at least 60%of omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), a polyunsaturated fatty acid that consumers are seeking as part of a healthy diet. However, often these healthy oils are rather sensitive to oxidation.
SunChia is sustainably produced via a proprietary farm-to-finish process that guarantees its quality and stability It is the only chia oil that’s shelf stable for 2 years, thanks to proprietary XIA PURE Ox Blocker technology. This technology also enables a stable delivery of SunChia’s nutraceutical properties, and a consistent fresh taste and smell, without the risk of rancidity.
XIA PURE Ox Blocker uses a process and formulation that maintains the natural tocopherols within the oil, bringing an excellent oxidative stability to the product, up to two years at ambient temperature, while preserving its high ORAC level of antioxidants (962 umol/TE/100g), present in the specially selected chia seeds.
