Desarrollo y caracterización de un producto libre de gluten a base de harinas de maíz, arroz y quinua
PRODUCTOS NATURALES :
Nutritional aspects of six quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) ecotypes from three geographical zones of Chile
El objetivo del estudio fue determinar la eficiencia de uso y requerimiento interno de nitrógeno en quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd). El experimento se realizó en la Estación Experimental de la Universidad de Concepción, Campus Chillán 144 m.s.n.m. La siembra se realizó el 28 de septiembre de 1995.
Agriculture needs to increase its production with a small amount of available fresh water. Deficit irrigation (DI) is now widely been investigated as one of the solutions for this problem. The effects of concentrated drought stress in various phenological stages of quinoa on total production were assessed in above-ground mini-lysimeters under controlled conditions in the Bolivian Altiplano.
Quinoa or quinua (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is native to the Andes Mountains of Bolivia, Chile, and Peru. This crop (pronounced KEEN-WAH), has been called 41 vegetable caviar" or Inca rice, and has been eaten continuously for 5,000 years by people who live on the mountain plateaus and in the valleys of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Chile. Quinua means "mother grain" in the Inca language. This crop was a staple food of the Inca people and remains an important food crop for their descendants, the Quechua and Aymara peoples who live in rural regions.
