Linda Barrett – the Original Chia Seed Advocate
Linda Barrett is a health enthusiast, a master baker and the original chia seed advocate. She has become a passionate advocate for Chia seed agriculture since she rediscovered it as a food source in 1989. Linda Barrett offers consultation on Chia recipe development and nutrition incorporating to companies that are willing to optimize the nutritional value of their products.
Why is chia seed so important and why should it be incorporated in our nutrition? There are six major reasons: omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, hydration, soluble fiber, dietary fiber and proteins. Therefore, Linda Barrett has spent more than two decades to educate people to start using chia seed to make their meals healthier and tasty. At this moment, Linda is starting Mother Chia, a business focused on globally aware consumers. Prior to Linda’s work, chia seed was not even considered to be a viable food source, much less a super food with extreme health benefits. And how did she find it? Linda has rediscovered chia seed when she was searching for the seed with good adhesive properties required for topping breads.
