Quinoa is a seed that can be ground into flour and used as a substitute for grains, especially by the gluten-sensitive population.Quinoa as a crop and food has a relatively recent history in North America. It is originally from the Andes region in South America and is seen as the most nutrient-dense pseudo-grain because of its protein quality (amino acids pattern), minerals and vitamin content. Other great features of quinoa are its gluten-free nature and low glycemic index. The FAO declared 2013 as the year of quinoa and proclaimed its potential contribution to a sustainable food supply for the growing world population.
Most of the quinoa consumed in the United States is imported from South America. Currently, North America is also producing quinoa but the grain production is very less as compared to the demand. In North America, quinoa remains a niche crop limited to specific geographic areas. Currently, the greatest areas under quinoa cultivation in North America are Canada, Colorado, Washington States, and Mexico.
