Founded in 2012 by Mr. Freddy Yap, Superior offers a range of premium, natural food that includes the finest selection of quality bird’s nest and chia seeds. The brand is also looking to expand its wellness food range to include a selection of honey in the near future.
Superior Chia Seeds
Chia seeds — high in protein, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and calcium — is considered one of the most nutrient-dense foods in the world. The superfood is also gluten-free and great for cleansing and detoxing.
Some of the benefits of consuming chia seeds include:
- Help stabilise blood sugar levels
- Reduce risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease
- Prevent constipation and aid digestion
- Maintain stronger bones and teeth
What separates Superior Chia seeds from other brands is that each packet consists of five different varieties of non-GMO (genetically modified organism) chia seeds from Mexico and Peru. The organic chia seeds are micro-sliced to ensure better absorption while retaining the chia seeds’ nutritional properties. Each packet of Superior Chia ($18 for 300g) comes with vacuum seal to prevent the chia seeds from turning rancid.
Incorporating chia seeds to your diet
Although one of the most common ways to consume chia seeds is to soak them for around 10 minutes in warm water (before consumption), there are many other ways to incorporate chia seeds to your meals. For example, you can add some chia seeds to your favourite dishes to boost the nutritional value and crunch factor. Here are some dishes (created by Yàn for Superior’s event) that we have tried.
Charcoal Roasted BBQ Spare Ribs & Jellyfish Head
Fragrant Rice Soup with Chia Seeds & Crab Meat
The tiny black specks are the micro-sliced chia seeds.
Sauteed Grouper Fillet with Black Garlic and Asparagus
In fact, chia seeds are so versatile, you can add them in smoothies, cakes, puddings, oatmeal, breads and many more!
PS: Like any health supplements or superfoods, there are also possible side effects from consuming chia seeds. Although most people will benefit from consuming chia seeds but for those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastrointestinal issues, high/low blood pressure should consult a doctor before incorporating chia seeds to their diet.
Superior Bird’s Nest
Superior offers premium bird’s nest that are free from chemicals, additives and also HACCP (Food Safety According to Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System) certified. Mr. Freddy Yap, CEO of Superior, personally visits the bird’s nest farms in Malaysia and laboratory to ensure that each batch of bird’s nest undergoes a thorough quality control and check with supporting laboratory reports before being approved for sale.
Some benefits of consuming bird’s nest include:
- Enhance health
- Treat illnesses, especially those related to the lungs
- Enhance immunity of pregnant ladies
- Relieve respiratory ailments in elderly
Superior offers two types of bird’s nest products via its e-shop – double boiled bird’s nest (2 bowls for $158) and dried bird’s nest ($960 for 200g). For those who want to enjoy a bowl of bird’s nest without the hassle of preparing it, order the Superior’s double boiled bird’s nest. The dried bird’s nest is first soaked in boiling water for an hour and then gently double boiled for another hour before being sweetened with rock sugar. There is also an option to choose the preferred level of sweetness when ordering online. Each order of double boiled bird’s nest is delivered to your doorstep in a porcelain vacuum flask to ensure that the bird’s nest is fresh, air tight and warm when you receive it.

Superior Bird’s Nest is really different from those I have had. It has a firmer and springier texture.
