South America

Sourced from across the globe

The chia plant originates from South and Central America, where it was first cultivated for human use over 4,000 years ago by the Aztecs, Mayans and other native American tribes who relied on the seed as a staple food crop. Chia seeds were eaten whole, ground into flour, pressed to release a rich, nutritious oil and used in traditional medicines.

The seed lineages grown on our farms have been developed over 500 years by native Nahua villagers who have been domesticating the wild chia plant for generations, using selective breeding to improve the natural resistance of the plants to pests.
