Chia, the seed of South American herb Salvia hispanica, has been hailed as a highly valuable food for many centuries. It is believed to have been one of the staples of the Aztec diet, and today remains a core part of local cuisine in its native growing areas of southern Mexico and Guatemala.
The signature offering of Chia seed is large quantities of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, in a ratio believed by science to be dietarily optimum. There are many modern foods that contain Omega oils, but many of these give them in a ratio skewed in favour of Omega-6.
