Quinoa seeds, a nutritious and versatile grain, originate from the Andean region of South America and are scientifically known as Chenopodium quinoa. Belonging to the Amaranthaceae family, quinoa has been cultivated for thousands of years by indigenous peoples such as the Incas. Over time, quinoa gained popularity worldwide for its exceptional nutritional profile and culinary versatility. In recent years, quinoa cultivation has expanded to other regions, including India. Our quinoa seeds are sourced directly from Uttarakhand, where they are grown in the fertile lands of the Himalayas using sustainable farming practices.

An interesting fact about quinoa is that it is not technically a grain but rather a pseudocereal, as it is not a member of the grass family like wheat or rice. Health-wise, quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse, rich in protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals such as magnesium, iron, and zinc. It is also a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids, making it an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarians and vegans. Quinoa is gluten-free and suitable for individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Culinary-wise, quinoa is incredibly versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads, pilafs, and stir-fries to soups, stews, and even desserts. Its mild, nutty flavour and fluffy texture make it a popular choice for both sweet and savoury recipes, offering a nutritious and satisfying addition to any meal.
