Salba Presentation QNet

  1. 1. Salba® is… • A combination of its botanical name Salvia hispanica L. and the Latin word for white, Alba • Aztecs’ “Running Food”: provide extraordinary energy and power • The nutritional secret for restoring vigour • A good source of nutrients from nature: vitamins, minerals and high-quality vegetable protein
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. Salba® has… • Essential Fatty Acids(EFAs) - Omega-3s • Dietary fibre • Antioxidants • Magnesium • Calcium • Iron • A good source of vitamins, minerals and high-quality vegetable protein
  5. 5. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) • Necessary fats that the human body cannot manufacture • 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
  6. 6. Benefits of Omega-3s • Increased Energy • Clearer Skin • Healthier Hair • Improved Bone and Joint Health • Improved Allergic Response
  7. 7. Salba® vs Common Chia SALBA® CHIA Omega-3s: 228.7 mg/gram Omega 3-s: 175.5 mg/gram Protein: 212.0 mg/gram Protein: 156.2 mg/gram Nutritionally consistent, grown in Peru under Inconsistent, grown wild throughout Mexico strictly controlled conditions. & Central/South America. Grown with selective breeding, yielding the Grown in high volume as a commodity item to most nutrient-dense seeds. maximise profits. Grown in the ground for exactly 135 days, allowing Grown by hundreds of farmers with varying them to reach full nutrient highest-quality maturity conditions and crop life cycle standards. Often, for the sake of keeping the growing standards and chia is harvested early to produce more quantities of the quality nutrients. volume. Every Salba ® seed can be traced back to the farms in Chia sellers buy from third parties - often the Peru. Every step of the growing process is carefully cheapest grower available. managed.
  8. 8. Salba® vs Flax Seed SALBA® FLAX Omega-3s: 228.7 mg/gram Omega 3-s: 228.1 mg/gram Fibre: 350.0 mg/gram Fibre: 273.0 mg/gram Salba ® is 100% bioavailable and convenient to use, Flax seed has a thick husk that cannot be even in raw seed form. Salba® seeds have a thin husk digested. As a result, flax seeds must be ground. that is viscous, permeable, and hence easily digested. As a result, Salba® seed do not need to be ground to absorb all of the nutrients. Grown with selective breeding, yielding the most Grown in high volume as a commodity item to nutrient-dense seeds. maximise profits. Salba® has a subtle, neutral flavour that can be added to Flax seed has a strong nutty flavour and bitter nearly any recipe with very little impact on the flavour. aftertaste, which can impact the flavour of the recipe. Salba® has a smooth texture, leaving no residue behind. Flax seed has an oily consistencym which remains in your mouth after use.
  9. 9. Salba® Provides Good Nutrients 8 x More Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function, growth and development. 25% More Dietary fibre has been proven to lower high blood levels of cholesterol. 30% More Antioxidants help prevent free-radical damage.
  10. 10. 15 X More Magnesium helps with formation of bone and teeth and assists the absorption of calcium and potassium. 6 X More Calcium is the chief supportive element in bones and teeth. Calcium salts make up about 70% of bone weight and give the bones its strength and rigidity. 3 X More Iron’s main function is to help carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and other organs.
  11. 11. Salba® Is For Everybody • Working Professionals • The Middle-Aged & Elderly • Children & Adolescents • Athletes • The Overweight Population • Women • People with Digestive Disorders
  12. 12. Salba® Ground Seed Salba® Ground Seed packs the same nutritional punch as Salba® whole seed. Pre-ground for convenient use in yogurt, cereal, smoothies, soups and baked good recipes. Also comes with shake/pour flip-top lid for convenience.
