Chia: Composição nutricional e benefícios para a saúde humana

Yana Maria Amaral Rocha, Leonardo Patrick Enéas da Silva

Resumo


Objetivo: O objetivo deste estudo é descrever as principais caracterizações nutricionais da chia (Salvia hispanica L.) assim como os principais estudos clínicos, com significativo nível de evidência, que comprovem a recomendação de seu uso em humanos. Método: Foi realizada uma revisão bibliográfica através do banco de dados PUBMED  de ensaios clínicos randomizados que utilizassem a Chia (Salvia hispanica) e desenvolvido um novo produto. Resultados: Pode-se observar a riqueza nutricional de sua composição e suas propriedades de hidratação uma percentagem considerável de mucilagem: 5-6% (m/m). Conclusão: O conjunto desses dados em humanos demonstram um potencial de uso da chia na dieta de forma a ajudar em distintos fatores associados as principais patologias que afetam a saúde humana na atualidade.
