Superseeds. We’ve seen them in granola and sold as healthy smoothie mix-ins or salad toppers. But lately superseeds are being supersized! They are showing up in just about every kind of food you can imagine – from drinks to yogurt to snacks of all types.
It’s no wonder because superseeds pack such a nutritional punch. They are loaded with antioxidants and amino acids and are a great source of healthy fats like Omega 3s and 6s. Superseeds provide plenty of fiber and easily digestible protein as well.
Our good friends chia, hemp & quinoa are still ruling the roost as the trendiest superseeds out there. But amaranth, flaxseed, pumpkin & sunflower seeds are making a strong showing as well.
