Known to Bolivians as “the mother grain,” our organic white whole grain Quinoa is gluten-free and pre-washed to remove the bitter and soapy taste from saponin, a chemical compound that forms naturally in a variety of plant species. With saponin removed, quinoa becomes an extremely versatile grain that can be prepared in minutes and enjoyed in a variety of recipes. It can be milled into flour for cookies and pasta, cooked as-is for a delicious side dish to any meal, or as a refreshing salad ingredient.
Quinoa is an excellent source of potassium, which helps blood pressure and is necessary for all body functions. It’s an excellent source of vitamin B-6, which helps boost the immune system and it’s an excellent source of folate, which place a major role in bone marrow health. Quinoa is also high in iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, selenium, thiamin, riboflavin and vitamin E.
