This is an exclusive story about one of the most exciting new superfoods you've probably never heard of. It is a selectively-bred superfood seed derived from chia. Chia is a well-known ancient grain or seed used by the Aztecs as a superfood source, and by itself it is very nutritional. It's something I've used for years in my own diet. Chia is loaded with omega-3 oils, high-quality proteins, fibers and lots of minerals, but this new superfood (which I'll just call "super chia" for convenience) takes it to a higher level.

Super chia is a consistently produced crop with higher nutrient density than chia, and it is grown by a company in Canada. The company does its growing in Peru which has the right climate and the right soils for plants like this and it is now selling this super chia to food companies throughout the world that are starting to integrate it into their foods. As an individual consumer, you can buy this superfood by the pound and use it in your own cooking in lots of innovative ways, which I will describe for you. But first, let me tell you why I'm so excited about this and what this could mean for nutrition across this country and around the world.

People all over the world are nutritionally starved

If you think about the problems in nutrition today, they're very simple to describe. People are eating lots and lots of food, but they're starving themselves because they don't have good nutrition. You can eat donuts, pastries, crackers and cookies all day long, and you can fill yourself up with refined white flour, bleached flour, milled grains, refined sugars, corn syrup and other ingredients, and still be starving because your body doesn't get the nutrition it needs out of those ingredients. They are nothing but empty carbohydrates, and that's why they contribute to obesity, adult onset type 2 diabetes, and even mental disorders like depression, mood swings, aggressive and violent behavior in young males or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These refined grains and sugars cause many of the health problems experienced by wealthy nations.

What if you could replace some of those ingredients with something that was loaded with outstanding nutrition? I'm talking about omega-3 oils, quality proteins from plants, insoluble fibers and major minerals like magnesium, which is deficient in most people today. Such a superfood is now available. It's the "super chia" I'm talking about here.

This super chia isn't black like chia, however. Its seeds are white. What does that mean to you as a consumer? It means that you can put it in a coffee grinder and grind it up into fine white flour. Then you can take that white flour-like substance which is really loaded with omega-3 oils and complete proteins and minerals that are missing from wheat-derived flour and you can put it into breads and pasta and use it as a replacement for flour in your kitchen.

Replace harmful baking products with super chia

You can mix this superfood into many recipes, and since it's white, you won't notice any color difference, and no one in your family will notice any color difference. So if you bake your own bread, but your children will only eat white bread, guess what? You can now make white bread with 20 percent or 30 percent super chia, and all of a sudden, it transforms that bread from a nutrient-depletion product to a nutrient-delivering product.

All of a sudden, that bread is loaded with healthy omega-3 oils, quality proteins and insoluble fibers, which are outstanding for digestive health and for lowering cholesterol. All of a sudden, you have a health food, but it doesn't look any different from regular bread.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
