DESCRIPTIONThe Mother of All Grains.Nature’s Superfoods’ Organic Red Quinoa (pronounced ‘Keen-wah) is a protein-rich wholegrain that is widely termed as the “mother of all grains” because it is one of the most complete natural food available containing amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. An ideal low-GI rice-replacement food. QUINOA: A high-protein, high-fiber whole grain that contains all 9 essential amino acids (including lysine), B vitamins, folate, calcium, magnesium, a diverse array of antioxidants and many more nutrients; known for its high amount of superior protein (12-18%), which is higher than all other grains (50% more than wheat). The unique red color is due to the presence of anthocyanins that prevent UV damage and oxidation of the Quinoa plant. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants known to protect the body against free radicals, chronic diseases, heart disease, cancer, diabetes etc. Our organic red Quinoa seeds have a mild flavor and crisp texture, making it extremely versatile with or in any dish.
