Paul's QUINOA SEEDS

250 gram

Quinoa is a plant that thrives at extremely high altitudes in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. It was already cultivated thousands of years ago by the legendary Incas. The name ‘Quinoa’ comes from the Quechua language, the original language of the Incas. The Incas boiled Quinoa like rice and considered Quinoa as ‘sacred food’. Today, demand for Quinoa seeds and for Quinoa products is rapidly increasing, due to its high nutritional values (see table below).
