Résumé
Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa wild.), an annual herbaceous plant, belongs to Chenopodiaceae family. It was cultivated and used by the Inca (ruling class) people since 5,000 B.C. It is consumed in wide variety of forms i.e., grains, flakes, pasta, bread, biscuits, beverages, meals etc. Quinoa is also called as a super food and mother grain due to its nutritious values. It can be grown on alkaline and barren lands and it can sustain drought and ground frost. It comes with the added incentive of being insect-resistant. Very little research work has been done on production and marketing aspects of quinoa in India.
