This plant comes from South American mountains, where it is grown up to heights of 3800 meters above sea level. In this region it is known for more than 4000 years. Its seeds are similar to beens, they can be cooked, or grind into powder or flour, or the oil is pressed from them. Before usage they are soaked in water for some time.
The seeds are rich in protein, similar as soya, but they contain less fat and more fibre - in fact the most of all leguminous plants, and hardly any carbohydrates, just a little of starch.
Usage: mix into the smoothie, yogurt or any drink - not hot drinks!
