May 9/May 2011 NutraSolutions “NutraNews”-- BI Nutraceuticals is now offering steam-sterilized chia seeds to its customers. The company’s chia seeds have been sterilized using BI’s Protexx HP process, which uses super-heated, dry steam to ensure the material is free of any potential pathogens, while preserving all of the seeds’ healthful properties, says the company. This is an important distinction from many other importers of chia seeds, the company goes on to add, since they may or may not be offering sterilized product. Chia seeds can easily be incorporated into a wide range of foods designed to improve individuals’ cardiovascular and digestive health, as well as promote satiety. BI Nutraceuticals,
