Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is a grain-like seed which is a member of the Amaranth family of flowering plants (Amaranthaceae). It is native to the Andean region of South America, where it was a staple crop for the Inca, Aymara and other pre-Columbian peoples. Quinoa is considered an ancient grain because it has not been altered for large-scale agriculture.
Our North American Quinoa is sourced from 100% North American producers. It features a golden-brown color and a rustic, nutty flavor. Importantly, it boasts the same superior nutritional profile as quinoa sourced from countries throughout South America.
