ORIGIN OF QUINOA

Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) is an Andean plant that originated around Lake Titicaca in Peru and Bolivia. Quinoa was cultivated and used by pre-Hispanic civilizations and replaced by cereals upon the arrival of the Spanish, despite being a staple food for the population at that time.

Available historical evidence indicates that its domestication by the people of America may have occurred between 3000 and 5000 BC. There are archaeological finds of quinoa in tombs in Tarapacá, Calama and Arica, in Chile, and in different regions of Peru. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, quinoa had an appropriate technological development and a wide distribution in the Inca territory and outside of it. The first Spaniard to report the cultivation of quinoa was Pedro de Valdivia, who, observing the crops around Concepción, mentions that, among other plants, the Indians also plant quinoa for their food.

Garcilaso de la Vega describes in his royal comments that the quinoa plant is one of the second grains that are grown on the face of the earth called quinoa and that it somewhat resembles millet or small rice and refers to the first shipment of seeds to Europe, which unfortunately arrived dead and unable to germinate, possibly due to the high humidity during the sea crossing.

Later, Cieza de León (1560) indicates that quinoa was cultivated in the highlands of Pasto and Quito, mentioning that little corn and abundant quinoa are grown in these cold lands. Patiño (1964) also mentions that in his reviews of La Paz, quinoa is spoken of as a plant that served as food for the indigenous people (Jiménez de la Espada, 1885, II, 68) and finally Humboldt, when visiting Colombia, indicates that Quinoa has always accompanied the inhabitants of Cundinamarca.

TRADITIONAL USE OF QUINOA

The quinoa grain has various forms of use to combat liver conditions, tonsillitis and cystitis. It is a dental analgesic and has the quality of being anti-inflammatory and healing, which is why black quinoa plasters are applied, combined with some other plants, to heal bone fractures. Its fruit contains a large amount of alkaline substances and is used as a remedy for sprains, fractures and dislocations, making a paste mixed with alcohol or liquor. The studies found tell us about the multiple nutritional properties of quinoa, among which lysine stands out, an amino acid that is not found in vegetables and that is essential for health and energy; calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium, minerals that help to have a strong and healthy bone system; phytoestrogens indicated for the treatment of osteoporosis; and lithium that prevents stress, melancholy, sorrow and depression. One hundred grams of quinoa contains nearly five times the lysine, more than twice the isoleucine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, and valine, and much higher amounts of leucine (all essential amino acids along with tryptophan) compared to 100 grams of wheat. In addition, it exceeds this -in some cases by three times- in the amounts of histidine, arginine, alanine and glycine in addition to containing amino acids not present in wheat such as proline, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, cysteine, serine and tyrosine (all non-essential amino acids). Its medicinal properties were also highly appreciated by the ancient Andean inhabitants in the treatment of various ailments and diseases. For liver abscess, for liver conditions of various kinds, as a dental analgesic, against angina, anti-inflammatory, catarrh of the urinary tract, caustic, healing. As a vermifuge it was called paico. An ash (llipta) is obtained from the stem, which is added to food to prevent fullness (bloating) and as a substitute for lime in chewing coca (Cristo, 1995). As a result of its high nutritional and medicinal esteem, it was part of the sacrifices that were offered to the huacas.
