Chia seeds are derived from the desert plant Salvia hispanica L. Reportedly first used by the Aztecs, chia is sometimes labelled as an ancient grain, joining the likes of quinoa, amaranth, kamut, freekeh and spelt.
These versatile black seeds can be eaten raw or added to dishes. And although tiny, they're said to pack a hefty nutritional punch.
Along with quinoa and amaranth, chia has also been classed as a 'pseudocereal' – a non-grass plant whose seed can be ground into flour and otherwise used as cereal.
