LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2014) - Food & Wine Magazine has named Andean Dream's quinoa pasta as one of their "Top 10 Quinoa Products." Andean Dream's products, which are vegan, gluten and corn-free are a popular solution to traditional pasta.
In the past year, Andean Dream has been consistently recognized across the media sphere as a satisfying and more nutritionally complete alternative to wheat pasta, with 24 grams of protein per 8-ounce box. Says founder Ingrid Hirstin Lazcano, "Our factory provides jobs for single mothers and individuals with disabilities, resulting in an invitation to the 2013 International Year of Quinoa launch at the United Nations." Other notable moments were being featured on The Doctors and recognition on Bon Appétit's Best Gluten-Free Pasta list.
Andean Dream, LLC is a woman-owned, fair trade-certified business that manufactures gluten-free allergen-friendly quinoa cookies, pasta and soup mixes. Their pasta is featured in restaurants around the country. Their products are sold throughout North America in natural health food stores and chains, including Whole Foods Market, and has recently expanded into Canada, Asia, the Caribbean and Mexico.
