About: Prana, a Quebec manufacturer of organic nuts, seeds, dried fruits and snacks has a new-to-market superfood, ProactivCHIA. This amazing product combines the traditional goodness of chia seeds and probiotics. ProactivCHIA is a versatile way of enhancing health and maintaining a healthy gut flora.
What: Chia seeds have grown in popularity over the years due to the many health and nutritional benefits it provides, mainly being a great source of omega-3, protein, calcium and gut balancing fibre. Each serving of ProactivCHIA contains 4 billion CFUs of probiotics from 2 live strains (Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus helveticus).
Bonus: An excellent source of B vitamins, thiamine and niacin. One tablespoon sprinkled in smoothies, cereal, yogurt, salads, dressings and juices not only enhances the nutritional profile but also the texture of the food as well. Chia is also great for binding and thickening foods naturally.
