A few days ago I had thick warm gruel in the morning that I bought from a street vendor. It was said to bebased on maca.  The lady who sold it said it contained a combination of thick flours. It looked wonderful.

I asked her what all it contained, without thinking about the answer I might get. She told me it was the seven flours. I was thinking she could just go buy the combination and make it up.

I was, as a result, surprised when she said she selected the grains and other ingredients, toasted them, and ground them into flours. I asked why she went to all that work and did not just buy them pre-made. She said that when you buy a commercial combination of seven flours you do not know the quantity or type of ingredients.

I asked her what the principle flours were that she used to obtain such a great consistency and flavor. She said fava bean flour, corn flour, quinua flour, kiwicha flour, wheat flour, and finally sacha inti flour.

Sach inchi, they say on in one of the articles on health, has 49% fat that the fruit has. Almost all of it is unsaturated fat and includes omega 3, 6, and 9 fats. These are fats that are excellent for your health.
