What is Royal Quinoa?
Royal Quinoa is only grown at 12,000 feet above sea level in the areas surrounding the "Salar de Uyuni" in the "Altiplano Boliviano", a high plateau in Southwest Bolivia in South America. This region was a giant prehistoric lake 30,000 to 42,000 years ago: Lake Minchin. This, and the intense seasonality create a unique microclimate that yields an incredibly durable crop, a larger, rounder seed, that tastes nuttier and is fluffier when cooked than the regular Quinoa. It is the "Champagne of Quinoa".
