What is Quinoa?
Quinoa [Chenopodium quinoa willd] has been enjoyed as an important food crop in the Andes for more than 6,000 years. More precious than gold, this powerhouse grain has now been rediscovered by the world marketplace because of its' delicious flavor and high nutritional value. Classified as a ‘super crop’ by the United Nations for its' high protein content, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it an unusually complete food.
Quinoa has been selected by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations as one of the crops that will play an important role in ensuring food security around the world in the 21st century. The National Academy of Sciences of the United States has rated quinoa as the most nourishing grain in the world.
Grown only in the Bolivian Andes, at an altitude of 13,000 feet, Royal Quinoa, which is the particular variety used in Andean Dream products, is the finest quality quinoa in the world. Royal Quinoa has larger seeds which contain more protein and amino acids than other varieties.

Ancient Grains Penne
TruRoots crafts our unique, gluten-free Ancient Grains Penne from a special blend of Organic quinoa, amaranth, and brown rice. Ancient grains allow the pasta to keep a firm “al dente” texture after cooking, seamlessly adding nutrition to familiar pasta dishes. Penne is one of the most versatile pasta shapes, but pairs best with chunkier sauces. TruRoots helps make nutrition easier with our fusion of ancient grains and familiar flavors. All TruRoots Pasta is made in Italy, in keeping with our values of cultural authenticity.
