Abstract

Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) and Amaranto (Amaranthus caudatus) are dicotyledonous plants, considering as pseudo cereals and originating from the area between Southern Colombia to Northwest Argentina and Nothern Chile, preferentially growing from 2500m above sea level. In this study, the dominant lactic acid bactria (LAB) species present in these seeds from Northwestern Argentina (Quebrada de Humahuaca region) were identified by molecular methods.
