Ancient Andean Knowledge Meets New Technologies

Here we are! This new article is dedicated to old knowledge of ancient Andean people

Nutraceutical Food of the Peruvian Andes by Bertha Balbin Ordaya

During my recent trip to Peru I had the opportunity to interact with different personalities in the tourist and cultural world, among which the well-prepared geographer, Bertha Olga Balbin Ordaya, author of this really interesting book. A book that stands out from the mediocrity of many guides who huddle at food salutism and cheer up in mid-world stores. The book, whose original title is Alimentos Nutraceuticos de los Andes Peruanos/Nutraceutical Food of the Peruvian Andes by Bertha Balbin Ordaya, is presented in a simple, direct but accurate language derived from the direct experience of the author who grew up in a family that for generations uses the knowledge of the ancient peoples of the Andes.


Here we are! My knowledge of modern technology met the ancient Andean people knowledge.

In fact, once read the little paper pamphlet published by the author, I contacted her and suggested to have a new extended book version using my book editor experience and my preferred fliphtml5 software.

Features and format: The book is bilingual, Spanish-English and consists of 100 richly illustrated pages. You will find not only product analysis, but also practical tips and recipes that are easy to implement. The content and photos are of the author while the graphic design is the result of my collaboration with the author I suggested to use an innovative electronic format based on the HTML5 standard, optimal for a fluid and animated viewing in all electronic devices, from smartphones to PCs regardless of their operating system.

Index and thumbnails

 After having composed Alimentos Nutraceuticos de los Andes Peruanos  with several graphics tools, it has been transformed into an animated book with fliphtml5,software that for many years has allowed me to create rich media and multimedia publications. In fact, the book has an electronic index and a thumbnail view of pages that allow you to jump directly to the desired page. (See picture at the side)

adding notes feature (See picture below)


One feature I like and find useful is the annotation one. The reader can add custom notes and save them to the memory of their PC.

He/she can add textual notes, shapes, and underscores as you would with a paper book.

Sharing feature – Finally, the book when published online can be easily shared with one’s own contacts.
