What is Chia?

Chia seeds are derived from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, which is native to Mexico, Central and South America. These small. highly nutritious seeds were an important component of the ancient Aztec and Mayan diets as early as 3500 BC. These ancient cultures used chia seeds for sustained energy – in fact, the very word “chia” means strength in the Mayan language.
