I have been incorporating my breakfast with chia seeds and I never knew that there are more 1000+ types of chia seeds in the world! surprised This was made known to me after a chat with Mr. Freddy Yap, the CEO of Superior.
Chia seeds are known to have an abundance of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and protein. They are one of the most nutritious food in the world that helps to aid heart and digestive health, stabilise blood sugar and maintain stronger bones and teeth. High in fibre, gluten-free and transfat free, they are great for cleansing and detoxing and are delicious combined in food and drink recipes for that much needed energy boost, which is why I love having it for breakfast since it is the first meal of the day. smile
Then again, not all chia seeds in the market are good. In order to allow consumers like us to enjoy the best of the best, Superior had incorporated 5 of the best chia seeds amongst the 1000+ types and had micro sliced them at a fairly low temperature in order not to destroy the nutrients in the seeds. With them finely milled, the nutrients are easier to absorb as raw chia seeds with the husk still intact are less likely to be as nutritious as they are digested naturally as a whole by the body. Other than being a meal replacement to aid in weight loss, it also helps to prevent constipation. Here are some dishes specially created by Yàn for Superior’s event.

Superior also offers premium bird’s nest which are painstakingly cleaned manually by hand, using only distilled water. The nests are natural, organic and free from any additives, chemicals or cleaning agents. Each nest receives a final quality check, ensuring its optimum colour, size, and shape which contributes to its bite and springy texture after cooking.
Customers may choose to purchase 2 types of products – double boiled bird’s nest (2 bowls for S$158) and dried bird’s nests (S$960 for 200g). For those who wants to enjoy bird’s nest without the hassle of preparing it, do order the double boiled bird’s nest. The dried bird’s nest is first soaked in boiling water for an hour, then gently double boiled for another hour before being naturally sweetened with rock sugar or honeycomb. Customers can also choose their preferred level of sweetness when ordering online. Each order of double boiled bird’s nest is delivered right to your doorstop in a porcelain vacuum flask that helps keep the tonic fresh, air tight and warm.
We were treated to Chilled Double-Boiled Superior Bird’s Nest in Coconut Water served with Vanilla Ice Cream, a lovely combination which I totally enjoy savouring.
