Organic Red Quinoa is native to South America, 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. Red quinoa is delicious on its own and in pilafs, soups and salads; the beautiful color elevates even the simplest dish. Our red quinoa has been thoroughly rinsed and air dried to remove the naturally occurring bitter saponins.
