Organic Kaniwa


Kaniwa has been used for centuries by the ancient civilizations of Peru to the modern Andean people. It naturally grows in the high altitudes of the Andes, and it is this unique environment that gives it its beneficial qualities.

Kaniwa is an excellent replacement for rice, gluten-free and high in mineral content.

Setting us apart from the other brands, each of our ingredients are single-source, not shipped around the world. We source each food and prepare it all from our community in Peru, bringing you and your family the highest quality and freshest food available.

-Rich in proteins.

The perfect replacement for rice; nutrient dense and gluten free, Kaniwa is an essential staple for all families. We would love to hear what you think about our “Baby Quinoa”!

Happy Andes Kaniwa is one of our beloved foods essential in our mission. Not only did we grow up as children eating Kaniwa in the Andes mountains, we also give back through our non-profit organization, Happy Little Faces. This is our free preschool for impoverished children in our local Peruvian community.

Thank you for choosing Happy Andes Kaniwa and being a part of the story of the next generation children of the Andes!
