    Product Description

    Organic Quinoa Grain

    • Organic ancient grain that makes a great substitute for rice.
    • Good source of protein and fiber.
    • Always Made Without Dairy, Wheat, Soy, Nuts, or Eggs.
    • 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.


    Suggested Usage

    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!
