Quinoa, the "mother grain" of the Andes, comes close to providing all of life's essential nutrients. We have selected only Royal Quinoa, the variety still prized today for its higher protein content and larger grain. Quinoa is suitable for those avoiding gluten or seeking a source of vegetable protein. It is a highly digestible nurturing food for people of all ages, recommended for vegetarians, vegans, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women.
While you enjoy this product, we thought you'd like to know how it is bringing about a better life for the producers.
Our quinoa is from Irupana, a highly ethical enterprise in Bolivia. Irupana assists farmers to produce a high quality organic crop, and encourages them to keep a portion of their harvest so they can improve their own families' nutrition too. Our contribution, and yours, is to provide a long term and stable market for the foods the farmers produce.
Irupana's initiatives are creating self respect and a healthier living environment for many farming families in the Andes who were previously dependent on handouts or coca growing.
