Organic Quinoa Organic Quinoa
Organic quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a light, fluffy, edible seed that feels and tastes more like a grain. Thanks to its mild, somewhat nutty and irresistible flavor, organic quinoa is an immensely popular food. But this "mother grain" is also valued for its tremendous nutritional content.
