Quinoa (pronounce Keen-Wah) is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It originated from the Andean Region of South America where the Incas held the crop to be scared and referred to it as chisaya mama or “mother of all grains”.

Most of the cultivars are grown between 2,500 m and 4,000 m. Depending on the variety, Quinoa’s optimal growing conditions are in cool climates with temperatures that range from 25°F/−3°C, during the night, to near 95°F/35°C, during the day. After harvest, the seeds need to be processed to remove the coating containing the bitter-tasting saponines. Saponine content will vary with variety, the picture above is Raw Bolivian Quinoa Royal before it has been processed.
