Introducing Benexia® Xia: the vegan source of ALA

Benexia® Xia Oil is a high quality, researched, and sustainable cold-pressed chia oil. It is the richest vegan source of omega-3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) found in Nature and in addition, it contains all the antioxidants and nutritional actives found in Chia seeds. 

Our partners Benexia® carefully select and produce their own seed genotype to guarantee the nutritional content of the finished raw material. Furthermore, Benexia® guarantee long shelf life and stable delivery of the nutritional properties in the oil, as well as great organoleptic properties. Sustainability is also another key aspect to our partner: correct agricultural practices are in place to guarantee crop rotation and the regeneration of the soil.

Most commonly known nutritional oils from vegetable origin contain a high ratio of omega-6s. Nutritional experts suggest that an imbalanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio may lead to inflammation and potential health issues and therefore suggest to consume more omega-3s and less omega-6s (1:1 to 4:1). Xia Oil contains at least 60% of ALA Omega-3 helping to achieve a healthier balance.

Extensive research worldwide shows the benefits of ALA, particularly related to heart health. Furthermore, specific studies have been carried out on Benexia® Xia Oil and results are available on request.

Chia seed and Chia oil are authorized as Novel Food ingredient in the European Union. Learn more by visiting our Benexia® Xia Oil dedicated page where you can download our product profile sheet (please remember to login with your credentials) or contact us for more information.
