Product Description

Quinoa was venerated by the Incas as a sacred crop for over 5000 years and is a herbaceous plant that belongs to the spinach and beets family.

It is grown on the Andean Plateau at altitudes ranging between 3800 and 4200 metres. It produces an ear which is filled with round seeds, which are similar to those of millet, and contains a considerable amount of starch, allowing it to be used as grain.
Out of the 200 varieties of Quinoa found in nature, we have chosen Quinoa real. This is the most prized variety because it’s rich in saponin, a substance which is precious to the skin.

Alce Nero Quinoa Real is grown on the heights of the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia at altitudes above 3,600 metres, using methods that are similar to the ones implemented by the Incas. The altitudes of the fields, the expertise of the Bolivian farmers and the meticulous quality checks that are conducted along the entire supply chain make Alce Nero organic Quinoa Real an extremely high-quality foodstuff, which is perfect for coeliacs because it’s naturally free from gluten.
