Quinoa is a sturdy, durable crop grown in the same way since ancient times. Its pearl-shaped grains offer excellent nutrition that has not been stripped by large-scale farming practices.
It is an extremely popular health food because it contains more protein and fiber and fewer carbohydrates than other grains and is free of wheat gluten. It provides a balanced source of vitamins and minerals.
Quinoa comes in a range of colors, with the most common being white (most commonly available, so often simply called "quinoa") and red. Compared to white quinoa, the red variety holds its shape slightly better after cooking. This blend also includes black quinoa, a variety prized for its deep, rich color.
Cooking quinoa causes its hulls to split from creamy soft grains, for a unique texture combination akin to bulgur mixed with couscous.
This quinoa is sourced from Peru and Bolivia, where quinoa has been grown since it was first cultivated by ancient civilizations.
This Quinoa is pre-washed and ready to cook. It’s a more nutritionally rich substitute for rice and a gluten-free alternative to wheat grains. In fact, the United Nations World Health Organization observes that Quinoa is closer to the ideal protein balance than any other grain. Among one of the few "ancient" grains that is a complete protein, Black Quinoa is also a good source of essential amino acids, fiber and many of the complex B vitamins. Quinoa was a staple Inca food and has been grown in the Andes for centuries.
