Eden Organic - Organic Red Quinoa (454g)
A rare Pasankalla variety organically grown on family plots at 12,500 feet in the Andes. Mechanically de-saponized, mountain spring water washed. Slightly sweeter than white quinoa. Quinoa has the most complete amino acid profile of all grain.
EDEN Red Quinoa is very quick cooking whole grain, ready in just 12 minutes. About the size of millet, each round grain is bound with a narrow germ. When cooked the wispy germ separates from the seed and its delicate, almost crunchy curlicue makes a great contrast to the soft body or endosperm. A mild, sweet flavor and delightful fluffy texture make it a versatile and delicious whole grain. It's also very easy to assimilate.
An ideal entre, in soups, stews, salads, desserts, and baked goods. Eden quinoa received Grocery Headquarters 2009 'Trailblazer Award' and Vegetarian Times 2010 "Foodie Award". Rich in fiber, folate B9, and magnesium, and a good source of protein, iron, thiamin B1, and riboflavin B2. 100% whole grain.
