History of Quinoa, an Ancient Grain

Quinoa’s journey began thousands of years ago in the Andean region, where it was a staple for ancient civilizations like the Incas. Revered as the “mother of all grains,” quinoa has transcended its traditional roots to become a global superfood. Unlike typical grains, quinoa is a pseudo-cereal, celebrated for its nutritional profile and adaptability to various climates, contributing to its resurgence in modern cuisine and sustainable agriculture.
