History of Quinoa
Quinoa (keen-wa), known to Bolivians as "The Mother Grain", is now being heralded as the "Supergrain of the Future". Ancient Harvest has worked with local, indigenous farming communities for over 30 years to offer delicious authentic foods you can trust. Our ancient grains descend from farms that span the entire length of the Bolivian "Altiplano" (high plains) at the base of the Andes Mountains. Not only do our products deliver a taste your whole family will love, but they are always gluten free, organic, non-GMO and delicious.
Now you can enjoy the goodness of quinoa in an instant! Ready in 90 seconds. Quinoa Flakes make a smooth and delicious hot cereal. Eat them plain or spice them up with your favorite toppings. Quinoa Flakes are not only for breakfast. Substitute a portion of Quinoa Flakes for flour in your favorite cookie recipe, include some in your smoothies for added nutrients and texture, or use them in place of bread crumbs to create the perfect gluten free coating on chicken tenders or fish.
