Quinoa Claims the World

Not too long ago, quinoa was a humble seed eaten by rural people and the urban poor. In Peru’s cities people would turn up their noses at its site, given its lack of status, in their efforts to climb the social ladder. Now quinoa is chic.

Quinoa is taking the world, one mouthful at a time.2 1995
