The Ancient Grain of the Andes and treasured by the Incas. Peruvian Quinoa, also known as “Sweet Quinoa” is a smaller variety with naturally less saponin, giving it a superior sweeter taste. Naturally red, Red Quinoa is similar to white in nutritional profile, some prefer the unique colors when using Red Quinoa.
The perfect replacement for rice; nutrient dense and gluten free, Quinoa is an essential staple for all families. We would love to hear what you think about our “Sweet Quinoa”.
Andean Star Quinoa is one of our beloved foods essential in our mission. Not only did we grow up as children eating Quinoa in the Andes mountains, we also give back through our non-profit organization, Happy Little Faces. This is our free preschool for impoverished children in our local Peruvian community.
Thank you for choosing Andean Star Quinoa and being a part of the story of the next generation children of the Andes!
