Which Chia Seed Is Right For You?

There are two different types of chia seeds that come from the Chia plant: black and white. While the differences are subtle between the two, there’s actually more protein in white chia seeds and more fiber in black chia seeds. So how do you choose between the two? Consider the amount of anthocyanin.

What Are Anthocyanins?

Anthocyanins are responsible for giving a darker pigment in plants. The darker the plant product, the more anthocyanin it is likely to contain. Anthocyanins are present in blackberries, plums, black beans, beets, and black chia seeds.

Why does this matter? Anthocyanin properties, according to the Journal of Agriculture & Food Chemistry provide potential health effects against:

  • cancer
  • advanced aging
  • neurological diseases
  • systemic inflammation
  • diabetes
  • bacterial infections

So which chia seed is best? If you can’t find a blend of both then we say opt for black chia seeds instead of white. Not only are they more affordable than the white ones, but they pack a little more bang for their buck when it comes to their nutritional profile.

Where To Find Chia Seeds?

Chia seeds are beginning to be offered at so many more stores than just health food stores. When you head to your local market, check the bulk section, baking section, and/or the spice section where you can most likely track down a bag of these happy little seeds.

How To Make Chia Seeds Taste Good

Aside from following our recipes (listed below), there’s a lot of fun to be had if you’re making up your own recipes. Some common ingredients that you can use in chia pudding recipes are:

Alternative Milk & Water:

If you’re looking for a creamier texture, we recommend using milk or a variant of nut, oat, or soy milk. If you’re looking for something a little lighter and with fewer calories, then opt for using water.

Spices:

Spices are a protein chia pudding recipe best friend! Ready for Thanksgiving in the AM? Did someone say pumpkin spice powder? Or how about cinnamon, nutmeg, and banana chia protein pudding. Now we’re talking!

Chocolate:

Mmm, chocolate. There are few different ways to use chocolate in protein chia pudding recipes like chocolate chips, shreds, raw cocoa powder (unsweetened), syrup, or pieces of chocolate candy bars. Beware though, if you add in others, especially candy, watch your nutritional profile so you’re not doing more damage than good!

Fresh Fruit:

Fruit makes a fabulous addition to just about any chia pudding recipe and it can totally change the vibe in an instant! Feeling like an island day? Throw some mango, pineapple, coconut or citrus in there. Feeling like a fall kind of Friday? Toss some pears, apples, or pomegranates into your protein chia pudding mixture.

Fruit Preserves:

If you don’t have access to fresh fruit or you’re looking to maintain a robust color that can store for a few days, then throw a tablespoon of your favorite jam or preserve into the mix! There are TONS of flavors you can mix into your protein chia pudding. Pro Tip! Try to avoid ones that have a lot of added sugar.
