In Europe, chia has become a well-known and frequently used natural product in recent years, although it came here with the discovery of America. However, In Central and South America the seeds were a staple food thousands of years ago. The Aztecs and other peoples also valued them for their healing powers. The tasteless to slightly nutty chia seeds provide important fatty acids, proteins, fiber, vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances, which makes them a superfood. Chia seeds are primarily consumed raw and as a component of mueslis, smoothies, desserts, jellies or jams.
