Now let’s learn some of the history of quinoa. As we may know by now, quinoa is a grain known to be a nutritionally dense superfood rich in protein. But where does it come from? It was originated in the Andean region of South America in the area surrounding the Lake Titicaca, located in the border between Peru and Bolivia. For many years the Andean people were the only ones to grow and eat quinoa. Lucky!
Evidence has shown that quinoa had a strong sense of identity and cultural value, since it was used in rites, ceremonies and sacred events. What we have learned until now is that quinoa basically belonged to the rich castes, meaning political and religious authorities. As a result of this cultural value, during the Spanish conquest, cultivating quinoa was banned and replaced with other crops such as corn and wheat. Quinoa survived thanks to the far-off communities that were out of the Spanish radar. From there on quinoa was not only a staple food for these isolated communities, but represented ancestral knowledge and cultural roots.
Have you noticed quinoa comes in many different colors? That is just one more reason why we love this grain, there are well over 100 varieties of quinoa, and each suited for different altitudes, soils, and climates. As a fun fact, quinoa can grow from sea level up to 4,000 meters.
