Bob's Red Mill Organic White Quinoa Grain, 369g
Quinoa (prounounced keen-wa) was a staple food for the South American Indians living in the high altitudes of the Andes Mountains. It was immensely popular because it was one of few crops that could survive in such high altitudes (10,000-20,000 feet above sea level). It could withstand frost, intense sun and the often dry conditions that characterized the Andean climate. Quinoa's health benefits are plentiful, and it was also recognized for its superior nutritional qualities. Quinoa’s nutrition is one of the reasons it was dubbed "mother of all grains" by the Incas, so much so that it came to have spiritual significance for them. Many traditions and ceremonies surrounded the cultivation, harvest and consumption of quinoa. Quinoa is a pseudo-grain‚ actually a gluten free seed, but used in cooking like a whole grain. Quinoa is a wonderful source of complete protein, providing all of the essential amino acids. Quinoa's benefits also include being a good source of dietary fiber. Naturally gluten free, this powerful little grain is a great addition to any diet, but is especially ideal for those following a gluten free, vegan or vegetarian diet who are looking to increase their protein and fiber.
