The chia plant is native to present day Mexico and Guatemala, and played an important part in the diet, medicine and religious practices of the Aztec and Maya civilizations. The word “chia” in fact comes from an indigenous term meaning “oily”.
The Aztecs in particular relied on the capacity of chia seeds to serve as a condensed source of nutrients by using them as food for messengers on long journeys.
