Andean Dream's Organic Quinoa Pasta Solves the Gluten-Free Texture Issue
  • Andean Dream's Organic Quinoa Pasta Solves the Gluten-Free Texture Issue.

  • Andean Dream Supports Farmers from Bolivia with its Dairy free, Corn Free, Nut free, Soy free pasta.

Ingrid Hirstin-Lazcano founded Andean Dream in 2006 after her husband Fernando Lazcano-Dunn introduced her to the struggles of the indigenous quinoa farmers in Bolivia.

AIming to provide help to these families, she developed quinoa cookies in her kitchen, and in June 2006, traveled to Bolivia to connect with a quinoa supplier who had obtained organic certification for 280 indigenous farming families. These families became her dedicated supplier for this superfood.

Now, Andean Dream also produces a line of gluten-free, allergen-friendly pasta that is making a name for themselves. A great option for consumers with special dietary demands, all the pastas are free from gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, corn, and nuts. All products are also non-GMO and Fair trade.
