GLUTEN FREE SUPERFOOD. Ancient grain Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) grows in a rainbow of colors, but the most commonly available are red quinoa, black quinoa and white quinoa. Taste and nutrition are similar among the colors. White quinoa tends to cook up fluffier, while red quinoa and black quinoa have a crunchier texture and the grains don’t stick together as much. Scroll down for cooking instructions.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF ANCIENT GRAIN RED QUINOA

Red Quinoa provides similar nutritive benefits as other types of quinoa.

    • It is a source of complete protein, containing all the amino acids required by the body.
    • Apart from this it contains B vitamins, dietary fiber, vitamin E, iron, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc.
    • Quinoa is also rich in manganese, copper and folate.
    • It has small quantities of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
    • It has greater quantities of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats compared to grains like wheat.

A PROTEIN PUNCH
Complete proteins are those that contain all 10 essential amino acids — the building blocks of protein, which your body must get from food. Although complete proteins typically come from animal-based foods, quinoa is an exception, making it an excellent protein choice for people who avoid meat, poultry, dairy, eggs and fish. A 1-cup serving of black quinoa contains about 8 grams of protein, which is 16 percent of the daily value, DV, set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration based on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet.

Black quinoa provides similar nutritive benefits as other types of quinoa.

  • It is a source of complete protein, containing all the amino acids required by the body.
  • Apart from this it contains B vitamins, dietary fiber, vitamin E, iron, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc.
  • Quinoa is also rich in manganese, copper and folate.
  • It has small quantities of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • It has greater quantities of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats compared to grains like wheat.

HISTORY OF QUINOA
Thousands of years ago, Quinoa was used as a staple food by the Incas, who referred to it as “the mother of all grains.” It was only replaced by wheat, rice, and corn when the Spanish came into power in South America. So for hundreds of years, Quinoa was only consumed by the indigenous population in Bolivia, Chile, and Peru.

Today, it’s being used by world renowned chefs to modernize classic recipes, transforming everyday menus into healthier gourmet dishes. Indeed, by substituting quinoa for couscous (wheat based) or white rice, you can not only give your dishes a heartier texture, but drastically increase their nutritional value.


STORAGE 
If properly stored, our Products will stay fresh so that you can enjoy them for many months. We strongly recommend storing in an airtight (dark colored/opaque) container in a cool, dark environment like a pantry or kitchen cabinet, away from direct exposure to sunlight or excessive heat like an oven. The amount of times you open the container and let in the harmful effects of oxygen will only increase the likelihood of rancidity.
