Chia was one of the four main foods of the Aztecs along with corn, amaranth and beans. Commercial production ceased after the conquest because of religious persecution and for agronomic reasons, but consumption from wild plants never stopped. As part of an effort led by the University of Arizona, it was re-domesticated in the 1990's, and is now available for food, feed and cosmetic applications.
