Here’s the latest healthy grain to come across my radar: salba. This versatile grain is the richest whole food source of Omega-3 fatty acids as well as a great fiber source. As part of a daily diet, salba can provide weight loss potential and it is helpful in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. A company called Salba Smart is marketing a number of salba-containing foods. They offer all natural whole wheat tortillas, bite-size organic tortilla chips, pretzels made with organic flour, organic salsa made with salba and whole grains and ground salba both of which can be used in cereal, pancakes and smoothies. Salba is the new hot thing and the tortilla chips, especially, are really delicious. You can find Salba Smart products at Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Vitamin Cottage, and other natural food stores.
