Kyoto/London – Chia seeds are still one of the most popular superfoods – the hype around the healthy seeds has never gone away. Nutrition-conscious consumers look to the superfood to provide health benefits, immune-boosting properties and a better sense of wellbeing. But our native flax seeds are just as good nutritionally as their exotic counterparts. Here’s something many people don’t know: grinding the seeds enables the body to absorb the nutrients they contain more effectively. Armed with this knowledge, it’s easier to get the new year off to a healthier, more balanced start.
Flax seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, quinoa and many other superfoods can all be ground coarsely, finely or anything in between, depending on how they’ll be prepared and what they’re going to be used for. Light crushing breaks the seeds down gently and allows them to release their full aroma. Processing superfoods in this way is also good for the body, as the aromas released stimulate the appetite and the important nutrients in the seeds and grains can be absorbed more easily.
The removable lid protects the grinder and stops the aromas from escaping. Meanwhile, the transparent body enables the user to watch what’s happening inside. And with a flick of the wrist, the ingredient is ready. The mill retails from 26.95 euros.
