Supergrain of the Andes: Royal Quinoa
13,000 feet up on the Bolivian desert of the Altiplano, traditional Quechua farmers tend to the coveted “Royal Quinoa”. Due to the unique combination of high altitude and a warm prevalent climate, "Royal Quinoa", the "Champagne" of quinoa, is a larger seed, richer in protein, that has remained the same for centuries, never genetically modified or subject to hybridization. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incans that they called it “chisaya mama” or “mother grain.” We call it nutty, delicious and endlessly versatile.

gluten free & protein packed

*technically, quinoa is an edible seed related to beets, spinach and tumbleweeds!
