About Organic Quinoa Grain (Black)

Organic Black Quinoa Grain

Black quinoa is a rare pasankalla and has a mild, sweet fluffy texture. It is also the crunchier and more flavorful counterpart of white quinoa but still as useful and versatile. The only comparison lies in the fact that black and black quinoa stays firmer after cooking than white ones. But everything else as far as nutrients are the same.

Quinoa, the "mother grain," is an extremely nutritious seed. It has a protein value that is extremely high (12-18%) and the protein it supplies is complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Because of this, it takes less quinoa protein to meet one's protein need than wheat protein. Quinoa is easy to digest and naturally contains no gluten. It is also a good source of dietary fibre, phosphorous, magnesium, and iron.

Is black quinoa a grain, yes it is. It is also referred to as black quinoa seed or quinoa whole grain (as it is unpolished). With a full range of grains we are an ideal place to buy black quinoa grain (Organic Imperial type).There are many good recipes for preparing black quinoa. Makes a great alternative to rice or couscous.
