Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a light, fluffy, edible seed that feels and tastes more like a grain. Our organic quinoa is pre-rinsed so it is ready for cooking! Thanks to its mild, somewhat nutty and irresistible flavor, organic quinoa is an immensely popular food. But this “mother grain” is also valued for its tremendous nutritional content.

How To Cook Quinoa

To cook quinoa, just combine one part of our quinoa with two parts water or broth, bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff it with a fork, and it’s delicious and ready to serve as-is or with your choice of seasonings.

Quinoa Nutrition

This power-packed nutritional combo helped give quinoa the name “Gold of the Incas” when it was cultivated thousands of years ago in the Andes; Incan warriors highly valued the crop for the energy and stamina it gave them.

Among the wholesome attributes that make the organic quinoa grain special are:

1) Quinoa is considered a complete protein because it contains all 9 essential amino acids. A one-cup serving of cooked organic quinoa contains 12-18% Daily Value (DV) for protein, which is more than any grain. In particular, organic quinoa contains lysine, an amino acid that most grains lack. Lysine helps the body absorb calcium and reduces stress-induced anxiety.

2) According to the USDA, quinoa contains nearly twice as much dietary fiber as other grains. A serving of organic quinoa has about 20% DV for dietary fiber, which supports a healthy digestive system by speeding up the passage of food and waste. It also keeps you feeling full longer to prevent overeating and promote weight loss.

3) Organic quinoa is a good source of minerals like phosphorous, magnesium and iron. Phosphorous is important for bone formation, kidney health, and muscle strength. Magnesium controls blood glucose levels, aids the absorption of calcium, and regulates blood pressure. Iron helps deliver oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body.
