Talk about an eye-opener! Our Organic Red Quinoa cooks up to a beautiful earthy-red color to give stir-fries, pilafs, casseroles and puddings?even Saturday morning breakfasts? a dramatic presence on your table. Of course, the health benefits of organic quinoa are legendary. This is the humble seed that anchored an entire population?s diet for thousands of years, by serving up nature's most complete plant protein profile. Even today, organic red quinoa is grown wild without cultivation or treatment high in the Andes, and harvested and processed almost entirely by hand. Other than machine rinsing and packaging, quinoa comes to your table in much the same way that it always has.
These beautiful red quinoa seeds are not as plentiful as standard white quinoa, which explains the price difference, but many folks prefer the red's slightly more robust flavor. Nutritionally, there is no discernible difference between the two types. Both are an incredibly rich source of complete protein, with all nine of the amino acids essential to human growth well represented. Our organic red quinoa seeds are also packed with beneficial fiber, with 64% being the insoluble kind. Add in healthy amounts of calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus, and you?ll see why quinoa is considered an elite superfood!
We offer quantites to suit your lifestyle and pocketbook. Whether you order one pound at a time or ten, your organic quinoa bulk purchase brings a quality product that?s gluten-free, has an extremely low glycemic index, and tastes wonderful. Our organic red quinoa can be used in place of rice or couscous in any recipe, and is prepared the same way. We guarantee you?ll enjoy its light, fluffy, non-clumping texture and slightly nutty flavor that goes so well with so many different foods. For anyone on a health kick, our delicious and versatile Organic Red Quinoa seeds add more than just a splash of color to your diet.
