Since 1925. All natural. Quinoa contains more high quality protein than any other grain. It stands alone as a complete protein. Pronounced keen-wah - Quinoa is an ancient grain first cultivated 5,000 years ago by native Indians in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains, that is continually gaining in popularity today, due to its exceptional nutritional content, delicious taste and total ease of preparation! Quinoa is known as a supergrain, because it is a complete protein. This is because it is high in lysine - not to mention a good source of iron, phosphorus, and vitamins A, E and B (particularly vitamin B6). It is also a good source of calcium, needed for strong bones. Quinoa is a gluten free - this makes it ideal for people who have allergies, such as a low tolerance of grains like wheat and corn. Quinoa is a great source of fiber, necessary to maintain good digestion. It is also low in sodium. Plain or seasoned you will love all three of our Quinoa varieties! We know you will enjoy bringing this nutritious and delicious, easy-to-prepare side dish to your family's table. Product of Israel.
