WHAT IS QUINOA?
Thousands of years ago, nestled between the Peruvian Andes and the Pacific coast near Lake Titicaca, the Inca civilization began to cultivate a crop that was to revolutionize their farming and dietary practices: the quinoa grain, also known as the ‘mother grain’.
During the Inca period (early 13thcentury, South America) quinoa was referred to as “the gold of the Incas” because its nutritional goodness that made it an essential part of this ancient civilization longevity secret. Pronounced kinwa (originally from the word Quechua), the quinoa grain holds a special significance as a superfood today, not only for the people of Peru, but across South America and the globe.
Here at INKKA, we want everyone to benefit from quinoa’s goodness and enjoy its delicious taste and versatility. Being defined by the United Nations as a ‘super-crop’ and by NASA as the ‘Fittest Food’ to guarantee the nutrition of astronauts in isolated conditions, it comes as no surprise that according to the Harvard Public School of Health a bowl of quinoa each day can reduce the risk of premature death from cancer, heart disease, respiratory disease and diabetes by up to 17%.
We believe that a healthy diet is integral for a healthy life, and quinoa is just the beginning. INKKA cherishes all foods that are known for their extraordinary health benefits, especially those from Peru, where superfoods are numerous.
For INKKA, to be healthy means to eat healthy. That’s why we value foods that promote a healthy body and mind, as well as those that are known to prolong life and to counteract the ageing process.
Our team is passionate about human health and helping the local communities of Peru improve their lives. That’s why INKKA pasta aids the economic growth of the local communities there, which in turn have granted INKKA exclusive distribution rights for the UK.
