Cultivating the World's Finest Quinoa: 13,000 feet up on the arid, desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia, traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted quinoa real, or royal quinoa, an ancient variety grown only in the very spot. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incas that they called it chisaya mama or mother grain. Our Royal Red Quinoa adds a nutty, nutritious bright spot to any meal.
