Organic Red Quinoa
Organic red quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) was once called "the gold of the Incas" for increasing the stamina of Incan warriors. Quinoa has a light, fluffy texture when cooked, and its mild, slightly nutty flavor makes it an alternative to rice or couscous. Our organic quinoa is grown wild and free of any pesticides and chemicals.
Quinoa, the "mother grain," is an extremely nutritious seed. It has a protein value that is extremely high (12-18%) and the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one's protein need than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron.
It is extremely easy to cook. Our quinoa comes pre-rinsed with all saponin removed. It can be used as is, with no rinsing or cleaning required. Mix 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water for 15-20 minutes. It is great by itself, mixed with vegetables, in souffles, or in casseroles.
You can also make quinoa flour by grinding the seeds.
Red and golden quinoa are nutritionally identical. Red makes for a much prettier appearance once cooked.
Store quinoa in sealed plastic or glass containers in a cool, dark, dry cabinet. Quinoa will stay fresh for one year if properly stored.
2. Quinoa's protein content is higher than that of any other grain.
3. It contains an almost perfect balance of all 9 essential amino acids and is considered to be a complete protein. Quinoa is especially well-endowed with the amino acid lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair.
4. Quinoa is a very good source of dietary fiber, manganese, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorous.

“I have never tasted nuts so fresh and succulent. I will definitely continue to purchase from you. It was also thoughtful to send me a small pack of almonds. They almost taste like the almonds I used to eat from the tree in the west indies. The quinoa was also excellent. Thank you”

“I am so impressed with NutsOnline especially the fast shipping and quality of products! I have been shopping for Organic Red Quinoa locally as well as on the internet and it is in very short supply. NutsOnline had it in stock and so I ordered a 5 lb bag along with other nuts that we love to eat regularly. The packaging is great, easy to store and everything arrived in excellent condition. I have already told friends and family about you!! Thank you for your great service. I will be shopping again soon!”
