As we know in an Andean Quinoa grain grown and consumed by ancient Peruvians over 15,000 years ago, valued our neighboring country ceased to be the leading exporter of the grain of gold and been overcome by us now internationally.
The National Statistics Institute (INE) reported that Peru traveled to Bolivia as a world leading exporter of quinoa in the first five months of 2015.
The INE report indicates that 9000 Bolivia exported 248 tonnes of cereal, which reported a profit of $ 47.1 million.
For its part, Peru sold 12 thousand 454 tons and grossed $ 52.2 million.
INE figures, backed by the Bolivian Institute of Foreign Trade (IBCE) reflects the reduction of Bolivian exports of grain.
Paola Mejia, general manager of the Bolivian Chamber of Exporters and Organic Quinoa Producers (Cabolqui), Paola Mejia said the result is worrying for their country.
He explained that the new figures are due to Peru began an aggressive conventional quinoa production in 2013, with two crops a year. Bolivia only takes one every 12 months.
He said the Ministry of Rural Development and Land works closely with quinoa producers in Europe for the PDO real Bolivian quinoa as 100%.
He said the government of that country makes the necessary arrangements for the country brand in the US market for intellectual and genetic Grain rights are recognized.

As many of our native products Sacha Inchi (Plukenitia volublilis L.) is typical of the Peruvian Amazon and is rich in oil, protein and high in omega 3. Here is more information about the Sacha Inchi and its benefits
Peruvians are fortunate, because our country has a huge variety of highly nutritious food, they often do not know or do not eat. And what better occasion than Independence Day to publicize the benefits of a Peruvian seed that is gaining much popularity for its many health properties.
This is the sacha inchi, also known as “Inca peanut”, a native seed in the Amazon jungle, which has been cultivated for centuries by our ancestors.
This seed is characterized by being rich in nutrients; It contains proteins, vitamins and minerals; but what stands out in its nutritional composition is its high content of essential fatty acids like Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9.
The aforementioned fatty acids are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. For example, they are essential to protect the heart, for consumption lowers triglycerides in the blood and, therefore, the risk of heart disease.
Also, the Omega 3 is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and could avoid the risk of Alzheimer’s dementia or memory loss. During pregnancy, this fatty acid is also vital for the formation and development of the baby’s brain and retinas. It also has a protective effect on the joints and reduces the pain associated with arthritis.
Besides the essential fatty acids, Sacha Inchi has a significant antioxidant for its high content of polyphenols, substances which counteract the effects of free radicals on the cells and, therefore, reduce the risk of certain cancers and degenerative diseases such as heart disease. Furthermore, they are able to prevent aging.
Sacha inchi, either as seed or oil is flooding domestic and international markets, as it has been shown that consumption strengthens the immune system, has antioxidant properties, helps maintain healthy skin and prevents heart attacks.
Therefore, and given that cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death worldwide, the regular consumption of seeds like Sacha inchi, along with the practice of healthy habits such as eating a balanced diet, physical activity practice regularly, avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and restrict the consumption of snuff, they are a valuable tool to combat this epidemic.

As much of our post that we spread the properties of our grain of gold, this time I do get the first part of an article by renowned chef Alberto Fortes published in a Spanish gastronomic magazine ….
In the archipelago we enjoyed some of the most delicious and respectable jewels: ancient Canarian potatoes. But the Canaries are not “usurpers” and we know that these are not native to our land; They were not born spontaneously in our mountains, but we came as huge and wonderful gift from the high Andean lands of the New World.
The islanders know perfectly that the tubers, the crown of our cuisine, we reached the current Peru, and we appreciate it because it is well born to be grateful. In this land that we are well worn.
Worse today I will write about the Pope – other day Hare, because I intend to detail, in this first shot, a wonderful and magical Andean product, organic quinoa from Peru, (in Germany where I live they call it “rice of the Incas “)
Quinoa (or quinoa) is a seed, but only the power consumed as a cereal and actually features is considered a pseudocereal. It may provides part of their calories from complex carbohydrates, but also brings about 6 gr. of protein per 100 grams. and it offers around 6 grams of fat in the same amount of food.
It is the fruit of a plant I would say magical, spectacular. plus nearly its 3,000 varieties, has unique nutritional qualities, and in 1996 the FAO called it “promising crop of humanity” and as “an alternative to the major problems of human nutrition.”
It has immense potential in the future of food and healthy nutrition, and also unlimited dining options and culinary. This is discussed in the book “QUINUA five continents” (can be downloaded for free internet, Spanish and English; http://sierraexportadora.gob.pe/ quinoa recipe-to five-continents /).
It is a magnificent gourmet cookbook that I am proud to be co-authored and which was presented last July 2 in the “Big Apple” New York. The event was organized by the government of Peru and attended as guest of honor next to the cooks / as Diego Guerrero (Madrid), Javier Flores (Miami), and Irina Concepción (Lima).
Quinoa is already ceasing to be unknown and indeed is moving increasingly in the tables and in world markets. Food was once considered poor and now is an economic engine for farmers in the Andes, it is “catching on” in Europe, USA, and the rest of the world that hopefully does not involve commercial speculation.

Since Inka Millenium welcome this important date with all our partners, “masters of the earth” general public, and now we have a new bastion that will raise awareness over our food and products internationally but especially in Brazil. A brief interview with the Director General
Paila Director Oscar Solis Vasquez answered us some questions on stage in this new adventure which means Paila for the international market.
This highlight of the internationally increasingly recognized Peruvian food, what are the expectations of the magazine in the Brazilian market?
Paila is an online magazine entirely in Portuguese, which is to explain to our Brazilian friends who are having success Peruvian cuisine in the world, unfortunately they have no means which would inform them in their language of what is happening with food Peruvian who is hitting a lot in Brazil, we see for example in the Expoceviche the many people who go and especially in restaurants where they eat a lot of our flagship dish is ceviche.
Paila fills a space that was empty but still actually comes to integrating the efforts being made by the MINCETUR, PromPeru and the government of Peru through our embassies promoting our gastronomy, culture and tourism.
It lacked a means of communication in the Portuguese language so they can understand better, recipes, because the success of ceviche, prepared as ceviche, who are those who are making waves in the world, as they call our chefs, what are our Peru flag plate, what are the flagship products of Peru including eg Quinoa that is hitting a lot here, kiwicha called here amaranth, etc.
Then cover pan comes to the space that was empty, we believe we will be an impact on Brazilian society in their own language explaining the events of Peruvian cuisine to which they are accustomed.
As the idea develops Paila?
Paila is a production of Expoceviche, and Expoceviche is a company dedicated to gastronomy in Brazil and that its main aim is to promote our flagship dish, which not only sells ceviche but dishes of all kinds of Peruvian cuisine, ceviche is our hook where they get to know our culture, our food, our dances, our dances, and know a little more about Peru. We have seen events Expocecviche that have grown enormously in recent years and we hope to do this year, two more, one in Sao Paulo and one in Rio Branco, hopefully for that Paila is the instrument that our cooks, chefs and all the public in Brazilian general who wants to know more our cuisine
That surprises have we Paila in this first edition?
Among the important things that brings Paila for this issue is an interview with the head chef cevichero it were, named the best in the world cevichero Javier Wong, we have an interview with one of the most recognized of Sao Paulo as Edgar Villar the “Rinconcito Peruano” chef we have an interview also Marisabel Woodman Peruvian chef who has a tremendous event here in Sao Paulo and is now putting his restaurant, and also the success of all the restaurants that are opening the second most in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, as Restobar Lima is opening two more, the Tupac, there are many restaurants that are growing and hopefully Paila going to be an event that will support the further development of our gastronomy in Brazil
Congratulations for this magazine and entrepreneurial successes, anything you want to add?
A Happy 28th all and thank Inka Millenium this with us, supporting us and soon this product to be in Brazil that people wait with great enthusiasm.
Our Andean grain is consumed by the crew of the International Space Station for its many nutritional properties, rapid growth texture, weight and others. This superfood now accompanies astronauts on their power ….

NEW “EXTRA FOOD” by NASA.
On board the international space station, astronaut of the European Space Agency (ESA), Air Force pilot and protagonist of the second long-duration mission of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) Cristoforetti Samantha has selected quinoa as one their “extra food”.
Initial tests in the greenhouse indicated that quinoa respond well to hydroponic crops grown in controlled environments. Its growth was rapid and seed production was good, what makes quinoa a perfect food for outer space. Quinoa is rich in fiber and minerals, and protein also provides up to 4 grams of protein per 100 grams.
QUINOA IS PERFECT FOR LONG FOR SPACE TRAVEL
Keep in mind that in space no refrigerators or freezers. Food must be kept at a specific temperature given the high pressure and the absence of gravity. Another thing to consider is that food should be able to be kept for at least 18-24 months without cold chain, ie, at room temperature without preservatives. food packaging is also very important: usually prefer boxes of 30 x 20 cm, a larger and heavier embaljes.
Because of its texture, its weight and its high concentration of vitamins and minerals, quinoa makes a difference.
“Today eat quinoa salad with mackerel overboard from the International Space Station. Meals are a very important day when our day because and we have the opportunity to sit together and, more than that, share it with everyone.

The Expoceviche is already an event with its own brand that is taking more body every year, and now to be held in Rio Branco – Acre.
We interviewed this event promoter Oscar Vásquez Solís where we demonstrated that Peruvian products have many business opportunities on this side of the continent. Inka Millenium will be present exhibiting our products such as quinoa, amaranth, light aguaymanto jam, nectar and other Camu Camu light, making it even more valuable to know our food culture now for everyone …
1. Now comes expociveche in Rio Branco. What is your expectation for this mega event?
After hard work and negotiations with the Ministry of Tourism of the State of Acre. We have come to fruition to perform the ExpoCeviche in Acre.
We have the support of the government of Acre and the Peruvian Consulate in Rio Branco.Las expectations are making a Peruvian gastronomic culture event on the border is a challenge for all involved.
We do it at the border will help us to finally open the door of Brazil to our country.
The Peruvian ExpoCeviche is a party where we teach the Brazilians a little of our country, and so we invite them to visit us. Food, dance. music. beverages. crafts. products. tourism, culture in order all the great range of possibilities offered by our country.
2. Do you think that our commercial possibilities with our neighboring country can and should be more fluid? What do you think are the limitations that prevent us from growing much more?
The truth is that if they are limited despite serious efforts are being made through the MINCETUR to head Antonio Castillo. But much remains to be done. We have coming to Brazil, such as asparagus products. black olives. quinoa. oregano some canned peppers. Marinis in latados products and frozen. Pisco finally are several but many still missing. Work should be done government to government to remove some obstacles especially in tax and customs clearance delay products.
3. There are Peruvian products entering the Brazilian market. He believes there is a market for more products?
I mentioned some products but all Peruvians think they have a chance in Brazil is a large market almost 7 times Peru then imagine the great economic potential for the sale of our products.
4. Quinoa is one of the products already in the market the largest country in South America with a strong presence of Bolivian producers. That companies will be present with these products and others in Rio Branco Acre expoceviche 2015?
If the quinoa is becoming a product of the basic basket now many Brazilians consume albeit most quinoa q entering Brazil is Bolivia also are realizing q Peruvian Quinoa has higher quality. Some companies like Inka Millemium will be present in the ExpoCeviche Rio Branco-Acre.
5. Do you think the authorities in both countries should speed up the process of customs control and others to greater efficiency in our business relationships?
If you already mencionanos earlier if there is a greater streamlining customs I think many Peruvian products would already be in supermarkets in Brazil.
6. Per capita income of Brazilians in the south is higher than average, this is not an opportunity to place our products by the Interoceanic Highway?
If the Interoceanic can not believe I used to what was created, we see very little trade between Peru and Brazil for that area. Peruvian products go by ship to the port of saints or the port of Valparaiso – Chile and from there overland to Brazil. For the Interoceanic moves more an issue across borders. Puerto Maldonado Rio Branco and Porto Velho. Cusco but no more. The only company working for the Interoceanic from end to end Peru’s international express Ormeno for almost five years ago.
7. Apart from our ceviche dishes will attend the expo?
A part of ceviche. causes. tiraditos. lomo saltado. aji de gallina in order a lot of dishes with a touch of the area. It also goes to the cylinder habrr pig.
