Quinoa is a grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds.
The Inca referred to quinoa as the "mother seed," and considered it to be sacred. They grew quinoa in South America in the high altitude of the Andes.
Organic white Quinoa seeds are cleaned through machine for high purity greater than 99%. Sap is already removed from these seeds through a dual process of washing and friction. As a result our quinoa is pre-washed for cooking and no soaking is required to remove sapoline. Our Quinoa seeds are grown in high altitude of Andean mountain region by small Peruvian farmers using sustainable organic techniques.
