The 16th-century Codex Mendoza provides evidence that Chia Seeds was cultivated by the Aztec in pre-Columbian times, and economic historians say it may have been as important as maize as a food crop. It was given as an annual tribute by the people to the rulers in 21 of the 38 Aztec provincial states.

In nowadays Chia Seeds (grain product, surprisingly) are seeds from the plant Salvia Hispanica that are used for supplemental purposes to supply dietary fiber and fatty acid.
