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.

Suggested Use

Cooking Instructions

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.

Other Ingredients

100% organic royal white quinoa*.

This is the BEST Quinoa

Posted by 4807018600475821485 on Jul 22, 2016

Alter Eco Quinoa cooks up perfectly every time! Flavor is amazing and it fluffs up just right. Cheaper Quinoa gets mushy or sticky, and has an off flavor. I cook it it using two cups of Quinoa to three cups of water. Rinse Quinoa first, sitting in the water for about a minute. Bring water to a boil, add Quinoa and a pinch of salt. Cook for 20 minutes, then fluff with fork immediately, leave pot covered, fluff up again after ten minutes. Make a big batch.It keeps in the fridge five days. Add some to your oatmeal, or mix with steamed veggies. This Quinoa rocks!

Very good quinoa!

Posted by 4753588605312391547 on Jun 06, 2016

Very impressed by the quality of this. I always rinse my quinoa before cooking it to get rid of some of the "dirt" taste... didn't rinse these once and still tasted like quinoa - without the "dirt"! Will repurchase!

Nice Nutty Smell and Good Taste

Posted by cbeeel on May 10, 2016

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.
