Our organic quinoa is the ultimate pantry staple, and we just can’t get enough of it!

Known as the “mother of all grains”, this super healthy grain is extremely versatile and nutrient-dense. It’s also naturally gluten free! Quinoa is a complex carbohydrate with a low glycemic index, but it also contains all 9 amino acids, making it a complete protein. It is rich in monounsaturated fats, has small amounts of omega-3 fats and is high in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, as well as iron, calcium, phosphorus, selenium, and vitamins B & E.

Organic quinoa is a must-have pantry staple. It’s a nutritious grain you can serve as a side, use as a base for a hearty salad or a soup. You can even use it to replace rice in sushi and oat flakes in oatmeal! You can have it at breakfast, lunch and dinner in so many ways - there is no limit to the things you can do with our quinoa!
