Benefits of White Chia Seed Oil



Recognising the global shift towards healthy eating, Amway Malaysia first introduced Plant To Table by Nutrilite in 2022, launching the White Tea Mix with Chrysanthemum & Goji Berry, Green Tea Mix with Rose and White Chia Seed Oil, followed by our Organic Muesli earlier this year.

Bursting with phytonutrients to nourish your body from within thanks to Nutrilite’s decades of research in botanical science and nutrition, all these products make wonderful additions to the modern kitchen. Today, however, let’s focus on the White Chia Seed Oil and why it should be a part of your healthy diet.

With 100% first cold pressed white chia seed oil, it is a quick and easy way to give yourself a phytonutrient boost without compromising on taste. Amid increasing awareness of healthy and plant-based eating, we take a closer look at this wonderful addition to your cooking repertoire.



White Chia Seed Oil and Malaysian cuisine

We all love good food. It’s a defining characteristic of Asian culture and a significant driver of our thriving tourism industry. That said, this very love for indulgent good food in Malaysia comes with a heavy price on our health – and some of the biggest culprits are cooking oils which are high in saturated fat.

When used excessively to prepare dishes, unhealthy cooking oil can lead to various health issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, weight gain and heart disease. Fortunately, extensive scientific research has led to more positive development that can reduce such risks.



Benefits of White Chia Seed Oil

An awesome superfood packed with fibre, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, protein and best of all, Omega-3, white chia seeds can help counter the negative health effects of saturated oil. Omega-3 is particularly highlighted because of its numerous benefits, including heart1,2,3, brain4, skin5 and eye6 health.

Did you know that white chia seeds have one of the highest plant-based Omega-3 content? This makes white chia seeds a fantastic source of Omega-3 for vegetarians or anyone who prefers plant-based options to supplement their diet.



Interestingly, white chia seed oil has a high smoking point so it is perfect for sauteing, roasting or baking without losing nutrients. A good source of healthy polyunsaturated fats, it tastes great as a snack dip or salad dressing with its delicious nutty flavour.

And the good news is, it’s now easier than you think to incorporate the versatile white chia seed oil into your daily meals and enjoy all its health benefits!
