White Organic Quinoa
Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has been farmed in the Andes Mountains of South America for over 3000 years and has been eaten continuously for 5,000 years by the native people who live on the mountain plateaus and in the valleys of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Chile. Quinoa means "mother grain" in the ancient Inca language. This crop was a staple food of the Inca people and remains an important crop for their descendants, the Quechuas and Aymaras still living in these rural regions. Today, we can enjoy quinoa as part of a healthy diet as it contains more protein than any other grain. It is all-natural, making it ideal for children and vegetarians.

Serve it as a high-protein breakfast mixed with honey, almonds or berries. Quinoa is great for use in casseroles, as a side dish, with vegetables and in soups and stews.
