Chia

Chia is an edible seed from a plant in the mint family native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala that served as a primary crop of the Mayans and Aztecs. Because of its exceptional nutritional content, it was used by Aztec warriors as a source of concentrated fuel to sustain their energy needs. Endowed with a pleasant nutty flavor, Chia can be added to yogurt or smoothies, or even incorporated into baked goods.
