Quinoa is a nutritious ancient grain containing a complete protein profile. It is grown at an elevation of 12,000 feet in the Bolivian Altiplano region. Our Organic Quinoa is prewashed, and further cleaned and packed in the USA to ensure highest quality. Cultivated for over 5,000 years, Quinoa was the dietary staple of the Incas. Not a true grain, Quinoa is related to spinach, chard and beets. Cooked Quinoa is light and fluffy, and easily absorbs flavor. Versatile and delicious, Quinoa is must-have kitchen staple.
