Did You Know?

The year 2013 has been declared "The International
Year of Quinoa" (pronounced KEEN-wah) by the
United Nations. This nutritious gluten-free plant food-
originally cultivated in the Andes- can help fight against
hunger in part because it can grow in many different
conditions. This honor also recognizes the contribution
of the Andean indigenous people as custodians of this
adaptable seed.
