The Dirt on Nature’s Powerhouse Seeds: Chia, Flax, and Hemp

Powerhouse Seeds Header

A few days ago I was chatting with some friends about the differences between chia seeds, flax seeds, and hemp seeds…I know…I’m a dietitian, I geek out on nutrition.

These three kick butt seeds are popping up everywhere lately, so I figured it would be helpful to break down the basics, similarities, and differences of these rock stars in the nutrition world.

  1. I’ve been trying to incorporate chia seeds into my meals, but I didn’t realize flax and hemp had so many benefits as well! Will definitely have to pick some up during my next trip at the grocery store!

  2. Thanks for the info on seeds. We will try to incorporate more seeds, especially hemp, in our diet. My daughter has food-based angio-edema reactions, so we’ve had to cut many foods out of her diet. The seeds will help, especially hemp.
