History of Salba®
15th - 17th Century: Aztec warriors mixed the seeds into food before battle or long
journeys for enhanced endurance.
In the 18th Century: Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778) coins the botanical name Salvia hispanica L.
In 1991: The first experimental plots for Salba® were established in Argentina.
In 1994: Salba® was successfully introduced in Colombia.
In 1997: Further experimental crops were planted in Bolivia and Peru.
From 1997 – Present: Selective breeding (non-GMO) is conducted over a nine-year period
leading to the development of a predominantly white grain with a standardised composition
and greater nutritional properties.
The Agricultural Science of Salba®
After the creation of the Salba® variety, its potency has
been further maximised through:
• Climate Selection: The planet’s most optimal place to harvest;
the desert coast of Peru.
• Non-GMO Selective Breeding: Each batch is tested rigorously
to pinpoint the most nutritionally consistent seeds. These seeds
are then utilised in the maker’s distinctive breeding process,
classifying Salba® as an heirloom crop.
• Crop Lifecycle: Salba® seeds are not harvested early, only at
their most nutritious apex.
• Essential Fatty Acids(EFAs) - Omega-3s
• Dietary fibre
• A good source of vitamins, minerals and
high-quality vegetable protein
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
• Necessary fats that the human body
• Needed to manufacture and repair
cell membranes and for the
production of prostaglandins
• Play a role in immune efficiency by
regulating inflammation and
encouraging the body to fight infection
Benefits of Omega-3s
• Increased Energy
• Clearer Skin
• Healthier Hair
• Improved Bone and Joint Health
• Improved Allergic Response
