No bigger than a mustard seed once fed an ancient civilization which stretched from the seacoast of Chile to the snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes - the vast Inca empire. The Incas called it quinoa, the mother grain. So sacred was quinoa to the Incas that each year the mighty Inca ruler himself planted the first row of quinoa with a solid gold spade. As rugged as the Andes, quinoa has flourished in cultivation for over 5,000 years. Today, this ancient South American grain is being heralded as the supergrain of the future.
