FUNCTIONAL FATS AND OIL
Considering there are three main omega-3 fats: EPA, DHA, and ALA, which complement each other, ALA is the only omega-3 fat considered an ‘essential’ fatty acid biologically because the body can’t make it alone. We must get it from the diet.
Benexia® Xia Oil is a 100% natural cold-pressed oil with the largest omega-3 concentration of any edible oil and keto friendly. Over 63% of its composition is made up of ALA omega-3 fat. There’s evidence that chia oil supports the immune system, is anti-inflammatory neuroprotective, and promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails. And because it is plant-based, there is no fishy aftertaste, which is ideal for vegetarians and vegans.
Benexia® Xia Oil is also available in a powder format. The ALA Powder® is chia oil microencapsulated, it is an excellent source of omega-3 ALA fat. It retains all of the oxidative stability and sensory attributes of our oil. Benexia ALA Powder® is intended for liquid or powder applications where it is impossible to add oil.

Our bakery premixes are natural ready-to-use premixes alternatives, using Benexia® Xia Powder 435 W LM as an essential nutritional and functional ingredient in their formulation, bringing an incredible amount of balanced fibre, plant-based protein, and omega-3 in a 100% natural, gluten-free flour that perfectly combines with other natural ingredients in these premixes. As Xia Powder 435 W LM is not hydrolyzed, its viscosity reduces the need for emulsifiers and stabilizers, offering fantastic texture and flavor in bread, muffins, and cakes.
