General information about chia seeds :
Chia originally comes from Mexico. In the Aztec language, "nahuatl" means "chian" from which the present-day "chia" is derived, which can loosely be translated as "oily" . Both the Mayans and the Aztecs used the newly rediscovered chia seeds as a rich food and energy source, as well as for medicinal purposes.
