Chia is native to Mexico’s central valleys and belongs to the mint family. Often gifted to the Gods, it was the third most important food crop after corn and beans in the Aztec culture. Along with the Mayans, they were the first to cultivate the seed. Chia was rediscovered in the 1990s after having been ignored for centuries, and has been consistently rising in popularity since because of its numerous nutritional virtues.
