Todays fastest growing Super Grain, Quinoa (Keen-wah), is a unique seed that has nutritional superiority, nutty flavor, interesting texture and makes a great quick-cooking substitute for rice, couscous or bulghur. Both visually appealing and healthy, Red Quinoa stays firmer and crunchier than golden quinoa, while still maintaining its shape when cooked. When cooked, the thin germ circlet falls from the seed and remains crunchy while the grain, pearly and translucent, becomes smooth and fluffy. 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, Red 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. Red Quinoa is gluten free, wheat free and 100% whole grainwith a range of possibilities. It is a great quickcooking substitute for rice, couscous or bulghur and a nutritious alternative to wheat, rye, barley and oats. Make delicious cold salads, give body and texture to soups and stuffings or make a hearty cereal. Use leftover cooked quinoa in pancakes, waffles, muffins and bread.
