Organic ancient grain that makes a great substitute for rice.
Good source of protein and fiber.

Produced in a dedicated gluten-free, allergy-friendly facility.
Referred to by the ancient Incans as "the mother of all grains", Quinoa (along with buckwheat and amaranth) is one of the few plant sources to offer a complete set of amino acids, making it a rare plant source of complete protein. It's naturally gluten-free and a good source of protein and fiber.
Living NOW Organic Quinoa is a good substitute for rice in recipes, and is often used in soups, stews, and casseroles.
It has a mild, delicate flavor that's slightly nutty, making it a popular addition to many vegetarian recipes. Sprinkle on your favorite salad for an extra burst of flavor and nutrition!

Tasty Quinoa can be cooked like brown rice, yet only takes 20 minutes. First clean the quinoa grain by rinsing through a strainer. Simmer for about 20 minutes until Quinoa expands fully. Then add seasonings and desired vegetables and cook until water is gone.

iHerb Customer Reviews
My husband and I love the flavor of this grain and have always been happy with NOW products. This time, however, we are sorry to report that in two out of three of the bags of quinoa we found tiny rock-like crystals that could be very damaging to teeth. I rinsed the product, as suggested, but was unable to find the crystals, as they are very small and translucent. Otherwise, this stuff is delicious and especially healthy when cooked with turmeric and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil prior to serving.
Quinoa is easy to make, many possibilities with spices/ veggie ingredients, and very tasty. Its kind of a cross between brown rice and couscous. Just be sure and get it off the heat before it overcooks. You'll love it!
