BenVia Gold is a nutritional supplement and culinary ingredient made from chia seeds. It contains 60 calories and 4 1/2 grams of fat per one-scoop serving.
BenVia Gold offers the health benefits of chia seeds in ground form. Chia seeds are an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants. They are also rich in dietary fiber, polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids.
When mixed into liquid, BenVia Gold forms a gel that thickens soups and makes a low-cholesterol egg substitute for baked goods. Benvia Gold may also be mixed directly into water and other beverages. Blending or vigorously shaking the beverage helps the powder dissolve.
