Found from northern México to Guatemala in tropical areas. In México is know as Chaya.
Chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron; and is also a rich source of antioxidants.However, raw chaya leaves are toxic as they contain a glucoside that can release toxic cyanide. Cooking is essential prior to consumption to inactivate the toxic components; in this chaya is similar to cassava, which also contains toxic hydrocyanic glycosides and must be cooked before being eaten.
