Quinoa

Quinoa (keen-wa) is considered an ancient grain - high in nutritional value, it's packed with protein and amino acids.  One cup (185g) of cooked quinoa has about 8g of complete protein - meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that your body does not produce, including lysine which is known to help your body absorb calcium and may play a role in the formation of collagen. Quinoa is also an important source of zinc and magnesium as well as whole fiber. Our certified organic and fair trade puffed quinoa is from small farmers in Bolivia and Peru.
