Cultivating the world’s finest quinoa
13,000 feet up on the arid, desolate Salar De Uyuni salt flat of Bolivia, traditional Quechua and Aymara farmers tend to fields of highly coveted “quinoa real,” or royal quinoa, an ancient variety grown only in this very spot. This pearl-shaped, nearly perfect nutrition source was so revered by the Incas that they called it “chisaya mama” or “mother grain.” When you taste our fluffy, flavorful Royal Pearl Quinoa, you’ll understand why.

1 cup quinoa + 1 ½ cups liquid = 4 servings
Rinse quinoa under cold water until water runs clear. Place quinoa and water or stock in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and germ has spiraled out, about 15 minutes.
Flavor tip: Before adding liquid, sauté quinoa in pan with a dash of olive oil until slightly toasted, about five minutes.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I have ordered this product several times. This product is a good tasting quinoa at a decent price. The quinoa always tastes fresh and cooks up well. I also trust the brand, Equal Exchange. I appreciate that they source products from community co-ops and offer their products at good prices. I will order this product again.
As a vegetarian protein is hard to come by, but Quinoa helps me get what I need. There is a cheaper one from Now Foods, and this one tastes just the same at that one.
Nice Nutty Smell and Good Taste

This is my 2nd purchase. The quality is good but price is a little expensive for everyday use. I mixed with brown rice to make it more economical.
good and healthy

God quality. Normally I mix this with red quinoa. Good taste and texture.
Best and cleanest quinoa I've tried

In other brands I have found small sticks and tiny pieces of stuff, but this one is always really clean! They must have a good filtering system. The quinoa is very good tasting, and the size of the quinoa is a bit bigger than other types I think. Although they have a bigger size, they don't use a long time to get cooked.
