Pre-Washed / No Rinsing. Cooks in 15 Minutes. Organic Red Grains. A Complete Source of Protein. Gluten Free. USDA Organic. Non GMO. Kosher. History of Quinoa. Quinoa (keen-wa) known to Bolivians as "The Mother grain" is now being heralded as the "supergrain of the Future". Ancient Harvest has worked with local indigenous farming communities for over 30 years to offer delicious authentic foods you can trust. Our ancient grains descend from farms that span the entire length of the Bolivian "Altiplano" (high plains) at the base of the Andes Mountains. Not only do our products deliver a taste your whole family will love but they are always gluten free organic non-GMO and delicious.  . Simple nutrient-rich and versatile Inca Red Quinoa's nuttier flavor and crunchy texture make it the perfect substitute for pasta rice or couscous. It is great in salads and soups as a side dish or as a hearty main course. This nutrient-rich superfood contains all nine of the essential amino acids making it a complete plant-based protein and it is naturally gluten free. We hope you enjoy exploring the many ways to make this ancient grain a household staple.  . Taste the Ancient Harvest difference!  . Ancient Harvest. Always Organic. Always Gluten Free.

"Most other quinoa that I've tried is somewhat gritty and needs washing, but Ancient Harvest has been consistantly good without needing any rinsing."

Adds Color to Foods

"I can't taste much difference between the red quinoa and regular white, but either a mix of both colors or the red alone really jazz up whatever you are serving. I have added it to stew and also used it beneath baked chicken breasts and the plate really pops. Add something green and you have a masterpiece! I love the nutty flavor and texture of quinoa added to almost anything."

"Love it!
The taste is mild and slightly nutty. Cook it just like rice. Then either serve it as a side dish or mix it with other vegetables such as beans. Much healthier for you than starches such as rice!

"You'll be so surprised by this amazing grain. After you look at it's specs per serving you'll see nothing but great things. High in fiber, high in protein, low in fat, and easy to digest. This is great for vegetarians and for Blood Type A's. Enjoy!"
