One study showed that canaryseed(Alpiste) has similiar antioxidant activities similar to those of Vitamin C. Plant sterols and certain esters of caffeic acid contribute to canaryseed's(Alpiste) antioxidant activity.
Protein and Amino AcidsCanaryseed has 9 grams of protein per 5 tablespoon serving (measured dry). This is 18% of the US Recommended Daily Allowance. Analysis of canaryseed protein found proportionately high levels of arginine, tryptophan and phenylalanine. Canaryseed appears to have considerably more arginine than most grains-falling closer to quinoa, amaranth and some legumes-and a low ratio of lysine to arginine.
IronCanaryseed is a good source of iron, providing 3 mg per 5 tablespoon serving (measured dry). This is 18% of the US Recommended Daily Allowance.
Digestion and Nutrient AbsorptionMany people, notably the Raw Foodists, believe that eating enzyme-rich foods promotes digestion and health. Cooking plant foods destroys many if not most of these enzymes. Since canaryseed grain is soaked and consumed raw, it has these active enzymes in it.
