Quinoa Burger

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.

France will prohibit throwing food supermarkets.

 

One third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted worldwide, equivalent to about 1300 million tonnes per year. Volumes may be increasing when there is a population of almost a billion people hungry.
To this add the loss of energy, water, land and other inputs for production. It is high time that more countries take similar measures to the French …

supermercados
France has about 66 million inhabitants. And each year they pull away between 20 and 30 kilos of food, worth a total of about 15 million euros. A wild, and more waste in times of crisis …

The French government announced three years ago its intention to halve food wastage in 2015. And finally begun to do so: the National Assembly on Thursday voted unanimously to legislation prohibiting supermarkets and superstores destroy or throw junk food or food products that have remained unsold and still are able to be consumed. We talk for example of products whose packaging has been damaged and can not be sold to the public, even though the food product is in good condition.

The large retail chains that are forced to give free food to NGOs that provide assistance to people in poverty so. And in case of expired products, such as pasta packages will have to be allocated to feeding animals or the production of compost for agriculture. Anyway use them in one way or another that food and avoid waste.

“It is scandalous to see how sprayed with bleach trash supermarkets where in it still edible products,” claimed Guillaume Garot, Social Democratic and promoter of this law, which on Tuesday a new vote will be submitted to the National Assembly and then he goes to the Senate, which is expected to be approved without problems.

The provision prohibiting throwing food supermarkets is part of a broader law also proposes measures to avoid waste in children’s canteens and teach children to reduce food waste. Furthermore, parliamentarians are discussing ending the expiration dates on some products that are characterized by being evergreen.
