What’s The Skinny on the Super Seeds? Chia Seeds vs. Flax Seeds

Chia Seeds vs. Flax SeedsBoth chia seeds and flax seeds top the list of superfoods. They are both easy to add to your salads or smoothies for a nutritional punch. But is one better than the other? Let’s compare.

Chia Seeds/2 Tbsp. Flax Seeds/2 Tbsp

Protein 4g 3g
Complete Protein? Yes No
Fiber 6.9g 4g
Omega 3 (EFA) 5,000mg 2,700mg

Depending on what source you check out, either could win out. If you had to choose based on the above comparison, it looks like chia seeds win out, but not by a landslide. Use both. Each have their own nutritional
benefits and are an easy addition to your healthy diet where variety is key.
