Organic Tricolor Quinoa is a blend of white, red and black quinoa that is as nutritious as it is beautiful. 100% whole grain, quinoa brings iron, fiber, and complete protein to the table.
Native to South America, quinoa is a "pseudo-grain"—actually a gluten-free seed, but used in cooking like a whole grain. This amazing plant was domesticated thousands of years ago near Lake Titicaca, high on the plateaus of the Andes, and it was a mainstay in the diet of the ancient Incas. Tri-color quinoa is delicious on its own and in pilafs, soups and salads; the beautiful color elevates even the simplest dish. Our tri-color quinoa has been thoroughly rinsed and air dried to remove the naturally occurring bitter saponins.
