As many of our post we seek to provide relevant information to our customers. Here we accompany an article about a product with quinoa and the trend is still rising feed better every day.

hamburguesa de quinua

 

Quinoa burger its way into the culinary revolution of Peru and hopes to make the big leap into the world, now that the World Health Organization linked the consumption of processed meats with cancer.

“The quinoa burger appears as an option in search of a new stage,” he told AFP the famous chef Gaston Acurio, promoter of the movement that has put on the world map to Peruvian cuisine.

Acurio knows from experience. In his Lima restaurants, the veggie burger is slowly eating away the land to the meat, although it remains the absolute quasi queen.

In its local two types of burgers consumed. One is a pie croquette quinoa, also known as quinoa, lentils, beets, amalgamated with lima beans and yogurt dip and decorated with lettuce, tomato and mango chutney, which explodes in the mouth. It called Miss World.

The other is a croquette broccoli and quinoa salad drenched with Nikkei, wasabi sauce, pepper cream and onion rings. Pleasure for the diner is indisputable, but their consumption levels pale compared with the meat sold in Papacho’s restaurant specializes in hamburgers.

“The most popular hamburger meat sold 16,500 pieces per month, while the quinoa reaches 300,” he told AFP Diego Alcantara, chef of the restaurant.

“We opted for the quinoa why more and more people who eat less meat comes,” he said Alcantara.

Quinoa, popularly known as ‘the golden grain of the Incas’ by its Andean origin and its energizing properties, still has a long way to go to replace the popular processed meat burgers sold in fast food chains.

Although the controversial WHO report in late October not imply a call to stop eating meat altogether, uncertainty opens a space for alternatives to a healthier diet.

In the words of Acurio, quinoa consumption could help create a balance with consumption of red meat, in line with world environmental watchdog.

“The balance (understood) as the new world of cuisine that is delicious, nutritious, conscious and sustainable. In this case, it is to seek moderation in the consumption of meat (red) for health and environmental reasons, “he said.

The occasion may then favorable, according to the chef, to use “quinoa burger as delicious tool to open a window where everything is ‘hamburgueseable’, not only the quinoa, whole plant world”.

Ignacio Medina, food critic for the Spanish daily El settled in Lima Country warns that products which gives the earth are not without risk.

“I agree that quinoa can be an alternative, it is very nutritious, but has been introduced in the Peruvian coast that have never grown, adding herbicides and fumigándola” he says in a talk with AFP.

“In plants there are also large amounts of toxic substances. All foods are suspect. WHO should start talking about diets and balance. There is no substitute for anything, there must be balance. Is a false debate launched by WHO in its report, “said the specialist.

New opportunities for ancient grains

An interesting article that shows once again how valuable, important, feasible and necessary for us to consider to maintain quality and superiority of our Andean grains  Inka Millennium  markets and values ​​…

Our rich Andean grain varieties and nutrients for the benefit of all mankind.

Our rich Andean grain varieties and nutrients for the benefit of all mankind.

Recent research formulation called Food trends: ancient grains and sprouted ingredients, the firm Packaged Facts United States, accounts for the large number of food products that contain ancient grains as our ancestors ate and now recreated as ingredients countless products. Improved test is that in 2014, 19% of Americans reported having used those old products including grains; and these have been marketed in specialty stores at conventional supermarkets.
But the most important result of this research is that it appears that the trend will continue.
This is for Peru, a concern and a challenge. A concern that this trend will accentuate the interest of other countries, for example in producing and exporting quinoa. As is known, the US, Denmark, Spain, England and Finland have achieved new quinoa varieties adapted to your climate. The same could happen with amaranth or amaranth and cañihua, which our country could lose the leadership that has as a producer and exporter of these grains.
The challenge that the study itself raises is that the use of these ancient grains, which in the case of Peru were used by the Incas, has spread thanks to its use as an ingredient in other finished products in different categories: cereals, breads, bars nutritious and chocolate, snacks, noodles, biscuits, yogurts, beverages, gluten free and vegan, among others.
This means that there is a whole range of possibilities for developing value-added products in these and other categories. But as the study itself points out, innovation must also include new flavors, textures and features that enable the development of new end products that can be sustained over time.
In this sense, we must keep an eye on the four trends that influence study suggests that sustain consumption of these ancient grains: the greater interest in making the breakfast in a key meals; consideration of these grains as a protein source; the perception that the inclusion of these ingredients in the final product becomes more natural; and the potential for development of products without gluten.
The good news is that there is an oversaturation of quinoa but on the contrary, whenever the ancient grains (quinoa and company) are more incorporated into new product formulations. The bad news is that in Peru we have no ability to react as quickly to these demands of new developments that include these grains; or, its development requires technologies that not many companies have.
Therefore, all are important efforts made to promote innovations in agribusiness, and one option grant funds are now offered by the state, supported by the Center for Technological Innovation (CITE) Agroindustrial and universities, but all companies interested in taking advantage of these opportunities that have opened to add value to the ancient Andean grain of our country.

5 shares to reduce your ecological footprint at home

To the extent that we all participate in taking actions against the effects generated by our consumption in general in the environment, this planet will be more healthy and beneficial to us and our children .

Using a bicycle, buy local food or wash dishes by hand are very simple steps to reduce your ecological footprint at home. You want to know more?

Consumption as a means to achieve well-being, is one of the highest tenets of capitalism. However, this consumption, which initially tends to be basic consumption is often transformed, often in excessive consumerism if not careful. Since the emergence of capitalism in Europe, the acquisition of wealth was the key to achieving great man status in society criterion.

In our current society, the technological development is the main cause of excessive consumption. In him large sums of money are invested and given priority over other things such as food or health; that is, it is given more importance to having to being. The problem is buy things they do not need. Which is directly related to the impact on the environment, or rather with the ecological footprint we leave.

The ecological footprint is a sustainability indicator to measure the impact of our lives on the environment. In other words, all the decisions we make about what we buy, eat, use or wear, including processes to make them possible, have a direct impact on the environment of which we are responsible.

When we think of the installation of solar panels, efficient appliances and electric cars, we are often discouraged by the economic impact on our wallets. However, there are simple and inexpensive things you can do from home every day that allow you to reduce the environmental impact.

1. Avoid using the car

Motor vehicles are the major source of CO2 emissions. These emissions are responsible for the greenhouse gases which, in turn, causes an increase in temperature of the earth. If you need to cover long distances using public transport, so also will reduce the number of cars circulating in the city. For medium distances you ride and walk for short distances, this will also help you improve your physical health.

In case it is impossible to use any of these alternatives, pruebacompartir your car with neighbors or friends you can leave close to their destinations during your commute to the office.

2. Take care of water

Many countries have limited reserves for drinking water and in some places, this liquid waste is vital to fined. Some actions that can be implemented to conserve water are: use the shower instead of the bath; fix leaky water faucets; use a glass of water while we brush our teeth; reuse water from the washing machine to wash the yard; and seize it as far as possible.

3. Eat healthier

Food supply is another major environmental problems today, not only food waste but for the cost involved in producing it, package it and distribute it. The solution is to eat local and seasonal products because, in addition to promoting the local economy will be consuming more fresh and free food -especially preservatives are organic. Try to reduce your intake of processed foods: instead of buying a bottle of juice, eat a piece of fruit; containers used to transport water from home instead of buying bottled water. Buy food in bulk or bring your own containers, you can also choose to use cloth bags or paper to carry your groceries.

Another option is to have a small garden at home you can either install located in pots on the patio or balcony. With organic waste produced in the kitchen can produce fertilizer that can be used to harvest vegetables in a healthy way for our own consumption.

4. Watch your consumption of electricity

You may have home electronics that save us a lot of effort to do some everyday activities. However, this effort is saving at the cost of high energy consumption and its impact on the environment unchanged. Hanging clothes in the sun instead of using the dryer or washing dishes by hand not use the dishwasher are simple actions you can start doing. Another energy saving measure is to use energy saving light bulbs or LED lamps instead of the traditional yellow lights; just remember to turn them off when you do not need.

5. Give more life to your stuff

Being aware of our own consumption is more effective than recycling and reducing solution footprint, representing a preventive action. Often we throw or keep devices working perfectly just because it was released a newer one. We can easily extend the life of many appliances whether recycled or donated. But above all, avoid buying what you do not need. At the end you will see that there is nothing more rewarding than a simple life.
