Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is native to the South American continent. It has been consumed for thousands of years and was known as the “Mother Grain” by the Incas. Technically it is not a grain but a pseudocereal, meaning it is a seed which is prepared and consumed like a grain. Once a staple for the Andean people, it has recently exploded in popularity world-wide on the back of a rich nutritional profile.

Quinoa can be a nourishing alternative to rice, pasta and other grains. It is an excellent source of nutrients and is being increasingly recognized for its wealth of health benefits.
