Wikipedia SummaryChia seeds are the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the sage family (Lamiaceae) native to central and southern Mexico, or of the related Salvia columbariae of the southwestern United States and Mexico. Chia seeds are cultivated on a small scale in their ancestral homeland of central Mexico and Guatemala and commercially throughout Central and South America. Ground or whole chia seeds are used in Argentina, Bolivia, Guatemala, Mexico, and Paraguay for nutritious drinks and food. The gel from ground seeds may be used to replace as much as 25% of the egg and oil content in cakes.In 2009, the European Union approved chia seeds as a novel food, allowing chia to be up to 5% of the total matter in bread products.Unlike flax seeds, and despite popular misconception, chia seeds are digestible whole and do not need to be ground. During the 1980s in the United States, the first substantial wave of chia seed sales was tied to chia pets, clay figures that serve as the base for a sticky paste of chia seeds.
