Quinoa, Challenges of a Conquest

What happens when a plant that has been cultivated for centuries far from the preoccupations of international trade crosses the oceans, appears on market stalls and fills our diversity-seeking plates? In a few decades, the extremely high nutritional value of quinoa has placed this plant among the major global food crops. This happened with the potato 250 years ago and rice a little less than a century. The author gives us a chance to wonder about what is taking place on our plates, on the agricultural models induced by our food consumption and on the biodiversity that can thus be maintained for the years to come.
