Quinoa is also a very good source of antioxidants and minerals which is why it is a versatile and nutritious alternative to wheat-based flours.

It does not contain gluten and it is rich in fibre making it very digestible.

Quinoa was already known in 5000 B.C. and has played an important role in human nutrition since ancestral times. This plant was a very important crop for the Incas and they painstakingly ground this sacred grain into powder to use in baking and even as a poultice on wounds!

Tolerant to extreme temperatures and drought conditions, Quinoa is cultivated across a vast expanse of the longest mountain range of the world, the Andes. Being able to tolerate poor and rough environments, this superb crop grows perfectly in locations where it is not possible to grow maize and other food plants.

Super Cholo Foods team is delighted to share the legacy of this exclusive crop with you. Our commitment is to source it directly from Peru.
