Quinoa

Quinoa is a gluten free super food with higher protein content from other cereals. This cereal was the sacred food of the Incas and also consumed by the prehispanics.

Quinoa is also recognized for containing a high percentage of essential amino acids for human nutrition.

After the conquest, growing amaranth was considered a sacrilege because it was linked to the deepest of pre-Columbian traditions. The crops and their use were forbidden. But despite that, some brave farmers saved it from extinction.
