Nutritious Superfood:Quinoa is a whole grain, it is not refined or processed, therefore, all of the important vitamins and minerals remain intact.
Gluten free: Quinoa is the perfect food to include in a gluten-free diet. It not only lacks gluten but doesn’t even belong to the same plant family as wheat, oats, barley, or rye.
Quinoa is generally available in pre-packaged containers as well as bulk bins. Whether purchasing quinoa in bulk or in a packaged container, make sure that there is no evidence of moisture.
Store quinoa in an airtight container. It will stay for a longer period of time, approximately three to six months, if stored in the refrigerator.
The healthiest way to cook the quinoa is to add one part of the grain to two parts liquid in a saucepan.
Quinoa is generally well tolerated, but it contains phytates and oxalates. When consumed in high quantity may reduce the absorption of minerals and contribute to kidney stone formation in some individuals.
