Chia Seeds the Superfood

Chia Seeds the Superfood

Runners and cyclists are always looking for the perfect, portable, and nutrient dense food to give them energy during their long races. Endurance nutrition is critical for athletes who expend calories and energy at incredible rates. Without proper nutrition and energy an athlete will “hit the wall” well before the end of the race.



33Fuel has introduced a Chia Seed Energy Gel that was specifically designed for endurance athletes.

These squeeze packs can be prepared before the race and eaten on the run. Chia seeds have been all over the news lately for their use as a “superfood.” 

A superfood is a slang term used to describe foods that are incredibly rich in vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and healthy fats. Many nuts, seeds, and plant based foods can be classified as a superfood since they are rich in fats, proteins, and fibers. 

Endurance nutrition is based off of calories, meal timing, macronutrients, and hydration levels. Chia seeds are unique in the fact that they can absorb almost 10x their weight in water. Chia seeds are also packed with protein (5 grams per 3 tablespoons) which is necessary for endurance athletes. 

With naturally, slow-digesting sugars will ensure that the athlete does not have a “sugar crash” after ingesting the squeeze pack.

33Fuel is truly a company that was developed for endurance athletes. No matter what endurance sport you participate in, 33Fuel has endurance nutrition supplements that are perfect. Each product is 100% natural with no processed ingredients.
