Product Description: The Inca called this grain quinoa, or 'the Mother grain' in their language. So important was quinoa to their diet that the mighty Inca King planted the first row of quinoa each year with a sold gold spade. Grown in the mighty Andes Mountains of South American, Quinoa dates back over 5,000 years. This tiny seed, no bigger than a mustard seed once fed an ancient civilization stretching from the seacoast of Chile to the snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes, the vast Inca Empire.
