    Answer is actually the Spanish conquistadors


    At the top of the page it says "Quinoa was considered to be the sacred Mothergrain by the Incas, a gift from the gods. once forbidden to be grown by the Spanish conquistadors this protein-packed supergrain is busy being rediscovered..."
    2009 Wins = £833
    2010 Wins = £6,597
    2011 Wins = £7,083

    £2,012 in 2012 = £450/£2,012
    20 in 2012 = 4/20

    Pretty sure the answer should be The Incas.

    From Wikipedia:

    During the Spanish conquest of South America, the colonists scorned it as "food for Indians", and suppressed its cultivation, due to its status within indigenous religious ceremonies. The conquistadors forbade quinoa cultivation at one point, and the Incas were forced to grow wheat instead.
