Organic Quinoa, Red, 250g
USDA,EU Organic Certified
Much like rice, quinoa too comes in different colors – white, red and black! What’s the difference? The main differences are that red quinoa is slightly lower in total fat, marginally higher in sodium, fiber, sugar, and protein, vitamin E, riboflavin, and folate that white quinoa. However a 1/4 cup of red quinoa contains approximately 20 more calories than white quinoa (180 vs 160 calories). Their amino acid profiles are pretty similar with both being complete proteins and fiber rich.
Quinoa is an amino acid, vitamin, mineral & fiber rich complete protein with a fluffy, creamy, slightly crunchy texture when cooked (approx. 10 mins). Similar, but yummier, healthier, & quicker to cook than rice. Replace all your rice-dishes with quinoa for glowing health!
