P.L. Thomas’ ChiaMax Omega-3 is made from chia seed and allows processors to address three of the hottest consumer food trends with a single ingredient. Formulators can add protein, fiber and omega 3 to products using this low-fat, whole-grain ingredient. The solvent-free extract provides at least 3% ALA omega 3, along with 29% protein and 50% fiber. This neutral flavor ingredient offers a good source of the needed amino acids for good health, as well as an ALA/omega 3 source with a 1-year shelf life. It comes in both coarse cut for a particulate look and in a fine powder that helps with moisture retention in bakery products. Phone (973) 984-0900; Web
