CountrySpices Perilla Seeds

Place of origin: Meghalaya, India

Perilla seeds make an excellent alternative to chia seeds / Flax Seeds and are tastier. Perilla seeds have twice the omega-3 fatty acids as chia seeds. Omega-3 is important for brain functioning, and is hard to come by from plant sources. The delicate, nutty taste of these tiny, oval, flat seeds is often enjoyed in Asian and Middle Eastern dishes. Try them folded into bread or cookie batter, sprinkled on steamed vegetables, and ground with sea salt as a table condiment. Roast them to enhance their flavor.

The omega-3 to omega-6 ratio in perilla seeds is 6 to 1, the highest of any oils. Some studies have indicated that our modern diets have created an imbalance in the desired ratio (too much omega-6), so any food that can work to restore the balance is considered welcome. The perilla seed is also supposed to taste a bit milder than chia seeds.
