You'll never go back to plain noodles again! What is quinoa? Quinoa stands alone as a complete protein grain. It supplies all the essential amino acids in a balanced pattern. A tiny grain no bigger than a mustard seed once fed an ancient civilization which stretched from the seacoast of Chile to the snow-capped peaks of the Peruvian Andes - the vast Inca Empire. The Incas called it quinoa, the mother grain. So sacred was quinoa to the Incas that each year the mighty Inca ruler himself planted the first row of quinoa with a solid gold spade. As rugged as the Andes, quinoa has flourished in cultivation for over 5,000 years. Today, this ancient South American grain is being heralded as the supergrain of the future. Now you can enjoy the rich, nutty flavor of organic Ancient Harvest Quinoa combined with natural Non GMO corn flour in this delicious, highly nutritious pasta. Ancient Harvest wheat-free supergrain pasta is gluten-free. It's loaded with protein and very low in sodium. Once you try our amazing new pasta, you'll never go back to plain noodles again.
