Salvia hispanica, commonly known as Chia, is a flowering plant native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. This plant was a staple food of the Aztecs and continues to be popular today, especially for its high nutrient content. Chia seeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and complex carbohydrates. They can be consumed raw, made into a gelatin-like substance, used as a topping or ingredient in various foods, or prepared as a gruel or pudding. Even the sprouted seeds can be added to salads, soups, and stews. Chia seeds also have gelatinous, moisture-retaining qualities that make them useful in baking. Soaked seeds are used to prepare a cooling drink known as Chia fresca, which is a popular regional drink in Mexico. Chia seeds are prized for their unique nutritional qualities and have been approved as a novel food in the European Union.
