Small seed, super nutrition

For thousands of years, quinoa has grown on the Andean Altiplano and has been a food staple for its people. The Incas regarded it as a holy plant and worshiped its seeds. It is said that quinoa’s very high protein and amino acid content was a major food staple of the Incan civilization. Quinoa was rediscovered by westerners in the 1970s, and its seeds are now eaten for their exceptional nutritional benefits.
