Since the early 21stCentury, Quinoa became more commonly consumed in North America, Europe, and Australasia. The culture of consuming this grain bring us back to 3000 to 4000 years ago where it was first domesticated by the Andean people and ever since been in their culture as an important staple food.
Quinoa is a flowering plant (Chenopodium quinoa) in the amaranth family. It is a herbaceous annual plant grown as a grain crop primarily for its edible seeds. Quinoa is not grass like wheat or rice, but rather a pseudocereal botanically related to spinach and amaranth (Amaranthus spp).

Quinoa is originated from northwestern America region, Peru. In 2005, a team of social work volunteers from Singapore have been living in Peru and one fine lunch with the locals, they have discovered this nutritious staple food of the Incas in the Peruvian highlands. This inspired lunch gave birth to one of the leading Superfood brands in Singapore, Nature’s Superfoods the pioneers in exporting Quinoa and other Andean products to Asia.
