On February 20th, 2013 the United Nations launched the International Year of Quinoa. A highly nutritious pseudocereal grown primarily in Bolivia and Peru, it is believed that this complete protein could help eradicate world hunger.
Now trendy among health-conscious and gluten-free consumers in the U.S. and around the globe, growers in Bolivia, the world’s largest quinoa-exporting country, are experiencing the effects of the sudden popularity of their staple crop.
A colorful and controversial story, QuinoaSoup provides a rare look into the daily lives of Cecilia and Leocadio, a quinoa-farming couple of the indigenous Quechua and Aymara nations.
