Quinoa is a good source of iron and high quality protein. Try it in any recipe calling for whole grains. USDA Organic. Native to South America, quinoa is a pseudo-grain - actually a gluten-free seed, but used in cooking like a whole grain. This amazing plant was domesticated thousands of years ago near Lake Titicaca, high on the plateaus of the Andes, and it was a mainstay in the diet of the ancient Incas. Red quinoa is delicious on its own and in pilafs, soups and salads. Our red quinoa has been thoroughly rinsed and air dried to remove the naturally occurring bitter saponins.

This expression certainly applies to our traditional stone grinding mills, which are much like the ones used in early Roman times. It's also true about many of our favorite whole grains, which originated in ancient times. Amaranth, chia seed, farro, Kamut grain, millet, quinoa, sorghum, spelt and teff - they may be lesser-known than the familiar grains like wheat and barley, but each one has a story to tell, with histories going back thousands of years and rich cultural traditions from around the globe. Lucky for us, these whole grains aren't just ancient history; they're also tasty, nutritious additions to modern meals. These super grains of the ancient world are wonderfully healthy, and their unique flavors and textures will add a delicious twist to your favorite recipes. They're versatile, too - great for snacks, salads, side dishes, entrees, and baked goods. At Bob's Red Mill, we're always exploring the world in search of new whole grain adventures, and we're proud to mill the widest possible diversity of whole grain foods. With that in mind, we invite you to join us in discovering these grains of antiquity. To your good health, Bob Moore. All natural. Certified Organic by QAI.
