Traditional agriculture and natural seeds
The Coopain Cabana Farmers are deeply attached to their ancestors' philosophy and ancient local beliefs. The Pachamama, mother goddess and earth's spirit, still remains strongly anchored in their culture. Respecting the environment is a second nature to the farmers and their practising of a traditional agriculture is aligned with their values. No pesticides, chemical fertilizers or fossil fuel is used in our quinoa's production. It is good for your child, and for the planet too.
Consequently, no residue (of which certain are responsible for modern physiological pathologies) is present in our products. Their nitrate level is also largely inferior to that of conventional cultures.
Important fact: nutritional value of organic products is superior to that of cultures fed with chemical fertilizers, considering the minerals, vitamins, nutritional or trace elements rates.
Quinoa's history has allowed the seeds to keep their heritage. Spanish conquistadores forbade quinoa production 500 years ago to force Incas to break up with their religious traditions. Because of this, quinoa only survived in small pockets of the Andes and it has not been subjected to human selection as has been the case for most domesticated plants, depleting their genetic heritage and their adaptability.
This means that a very large genetic heritage of quinoa breeds cultivated remains, contrary to hybrid seeds of GMOs. This makes quinoa a resistant plant, hence reducing the risk for a sanitarian agricultural disaster.
All products used in our baby range derive from organic agriculture. The vegetables are grown by European farmers, and the quinoa is sourced from the Peruvian cooperative.
