Founder Dr. Wayne Coates, who holds a PhD in Agricultural Engineering, has specialized in the production, evaluation and commercialization of chia (Salvia hispanica L.) since 1991. Dr. Coates has worked extensively with chia in South and Central America. Dr. Coates is currently Professor Emeritus at The University of Arizona Office of Arid Land Studies.
On this website he offers insights into chia history, consumption, storage, safety, production, growing and more. This fascinating crop, which was one of the four most important crops of the Aztecs, contains the highest amount of omega3 fatty acid of any known plant, and also contains significant amounts of protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Recently Dr. Coates authored the book CHIA: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood. As an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and fiber, chia seed is a great energy source for a healthy, active lifestyle. We hope you become as excited about this impressive seed as we are!
Chia Product Research
Here at AZChia, we not only seek to be an excellent source of information on chia seed benefits and chia seed nutrition, but we are constantly learning more about chia and finding ways to make the seed more accessible to people. For example, we have created the Chia-2-Go Packets, typically available in our store, but which are currently out of stock due to manufacturing problems. These travel packs offer a convenient way to integrate chia into your diet and are just one of the ways we have found to bring chia into people’s daily lives.
