Peruvian Grains, Coffees, Crops, Beans & Nuts
While very special "pseudo-grains", nuts and beans are part of the Peruvian culture and nutrition since ancient times, they were just rediscovered and gained popularity worldwide in the last few years. The international demand for Peruvian "super-grains" like Kiwicha and Quinua thrives, as more health-conscious people realize the extraordinary nutritional value of these products.
Whereas peanuts and Lima Beans conquered the world centuries ago, other native Peruvian products like Sacha Inchi or Tarwi are just on the brink of doing so. And although coffee was only introduced to Peru some decades back, Peru became one of the biggest coffee producers in the world known especially for its organic produced coffee.
