Over the past decade, quinoa is a grain that has gained worldwide popularity as a vital “superfood” and excellent source of nutrients for those following a healthy lifestyle. Also known as the “mother of all grains,” quinoa was originally used as a source of sustenance by the ancient Incas in the Andean regions of South America. Andean Star´s Organic Instant Quinoa Powder is more easily digested in the human body, because it has undergone a very special process of gelatinization where the starch bonds are broken down and Quinoa’s impressive nutrients are released for optimized digestion and absorption.
Andean Star’s Organic Instant Quinoa Powder is sourced from the beautiful country of Peru, a region rich in natural resources which provides the optimal climate for growing quinoa seeds. Peru produces a smaller variety of quinoa with naturally less saponin content, giving the seeds a much smoother and sweeter taste than other varieties. Andean Star Organic Quinoa is non-GMO, gluten-free, 100% natural, and one of the highest-quality superfoods found in the world.
The Instant Quinoa Powder is versatile and is widely used in recipes for soups, porridge, baked goods, desserts, healthy snacks, mixing into beverages like milk, juices, smoothies and more. Since quinoa is gluten-free, it is the perfect alternative for people who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

The year we started producing superfoods, we founded Happy Little Faces, a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for impoverished children in our local community of Lima, Peru. In 2010, we built a kindergarten from scratch, providing free education, lunches, and extra-curricular activities for local children who would otherwise not have these opportunities.
We are proud to say that our initiative has grown successfully in Lima. We thank you for being a large part of our growth as an organization, and for helping the local communities of Peru.
