Very recently, both Andhra and Telengana states succeeded in Quinoa Cultivation.

Quinoa is a bead shaped millet. Right now , it may not be a household name, but it is going to be one because of its high Nutritional value very soon.  Because of this, Farmers rightl call Quinoa ,'"as  Food Of The Gods." Right now quinoa production is very high in the Anantpur Dist. of A.P

    Rs1500 per kg??? Looking forward to seeing this product in the markets. But the article you shared seems interesting hoping the product also lives upto the expectation. We will also need to wait and see how the market reacts to the new product

    Food of the gods???  Isn't that going too over the board when there are already so many more nutritious traditional grains that are indigenous to our country??

    Quinoa is rich in Proteins, full of Fiber, high in Minerals and glutton free. Because of its richness in several Nutrients, FAO of the UN declared 2013 as the ' Inter National Year of the Quinoa.

    Quinoa is a staple food of Andes Region from the days of Inca civilization. In Andes,it is known by the name Chisaya mama, means Mother of all Grains.

     Yes, the imported grain is sold at Rs. 1500 per Kg. Quinoa has lot of varieties. The Quinoa's rate which is being under experimentation is one of the many other varieties of Quinoa.known as Bolivian Variety.

    Now the experiment carried out in Hyderabad aims at a Quinoa, which is India Specific variety, whose price will come down over a period.

    Bajra and Ragi are equally or more nutritious and cone at 10% of the price.

    When a member provides a link to any article it is his or her duty to first read the article and know exactly what is in it rather than blindly copy paste and start the usual argument that he or she is always right in what they do..

    I personally feel that what were is grown locally in our country itself if we can grow it with limited use of pesticides and other contaminants then that itself will be the best and the most nutritious food for us. Nature has provided us food according to our climate and body, it is not necessary that all foods how ever nutritious it may should suit us. We should always be in harmony with nature for best results.
