Most seeds have their own pro’s and con’s. Chia seeds are a great source of fibers and omega 3, linseeds contain healthy acids and sesame seeds are good for human intestines.

Some supermarkets offer several mixes of seeds and kernels in a ready to go bag for salads or other dishes.

There are some delicious recipes for seed mix combined in milk shakes and yoghurts. If you are looking for a specific mix of seeds and kernels, kindly let us know.

Some benefits of a recommended mix by Dipasa

At Dipasa we have multiple options for seed mixes, almost all the mixes can be made and oat flakes can be added to seeds and kernels mixes. We recommend a mix of flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin kernels and sunflower kernels. Around 16% of each seed, to add even more flavor a mélange of toasted seeds can be added. This will give this mix a nutty taste and more “bite”.

This healthy mix of seeds give the benefits of each seed combined. Flax seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids and lignans. Make sure to grind linseeds before mixing them, this way your body absorbs more of the healthy nutrients. Chia seeds are very effective regulating one’s blood sugar and have an anti-inflammatory use. There was even one person who lived on chia seeds for one year with only water and chia seeds! Proving this super seed has enough nutrition’s for the human body to function properly (USDA, 2020).

Hemp seeds and hemp products are a growing market for many years to come. They are especially useful because of the high protein content. They are used as a protein powder or in a mix, before going to the gym or consumed by professional athletes. In combination with sesame seeds, which are rich in calcium and provide the largest amount of Vitamin E of all seeds and kernels, this mix becomes even more attractive. Just like chia seeds, sunflower kernels have an anti-inflammatory usage. Sunflower kernels are a great addition because of the magnesium content. They also give an extra bite and are larger than sesame, chia and flaxseeds (USDA, 2020).

The last but not least seed to add are pumpkin kernels. Pumpkin kernels are rich in iron, calcium and phytochemicals. They help prevent several cancers and stimulate serotonin levels in the brain. Mixing all the 6 seeds we just mentioned can be considered beneficial for human health.
